Netflix knocks HBO off its throne, as Emmy voters spread the wealth

Posted July 13, 2018

Since the first season of Game of Thrones, Dinklage has received a nomination for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series every year the show was eligible, and this year is no different.

While far behind leader Netflix, the other two established SVOD players, Hulu, who claimed the first best series win for a streamer previous year with Handmaid's Tale, and Amazon/Prime Video, continue to gain ground.

Dinklage missed out on a nomination a year ago due to Game of Thrones' late premiere date, which disqualified the series from the 2017 competition.
