Cable and streaming again dominate major categories
This year, the Primetime Emmy Awards could give several to “Schitt’s.”
Among nominees not often seen in the running for the honors – which Fox will televise Sunday, Sept. 22, from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater – the Canadian-made, soon-to-end Pop sitcom “Schitt’s Creek” has several major bids. It’s a relatively rare case of a basic-cable show breaking through in categories again dominated by premium cable networks and streaming services, Emmy darlings “Game of Thrones” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” being among familiar titles. Because certain programs were new during the past television year, though, the contests also encompass many fresh names.
