When it comes to which shows should win Outstanding Series at the 2016 Emmys, it’s cable v. network v. one lone public channel wolf. HBO and Showtime are back. AMC is scrapping with FX and USA while Netflix just pulled up to the red carpet in a stretch limo that binge-watching paid for and Amazon stands nearby giving side-eye.
But who’s deserving of the Best Series Emmy award in their category? Game of Thrones took down Better Call Saul and The Americans, but was it the right call? Should Mr. Robot have hacked its way onto the stage? Homeland and House of Cards fans would disagree. Since it's the show's swan song, Downton Abbey’s might have won its final Emmy.
Cementing HBO's dominance, Veep took home yet another statue. But what about Transparent? Or the out-of-left-field Netflix comedy series from Aziz Ansari, Master of None? Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt could've gall-derned it to the finish line. Black-ish still held down the comedy. Or the it’s-so-real-it-could-be-a-documentary snark of Silicon Valley might've disrupt this year’s ceremony and Wozniaked that trophy right out of the building.
Did you watch all of the Outstanding Limited Series shows? Then you may have known The People v OJ Simpson was destined to win. But what of Fargo? You betcha. Did you see the Roots update that caused both a buzz and a stir? American Crime? There’s still time. And did you catch every inch of Tom Hiddleston in The Night Manager?
The envelopes have been opened, but it’s up to you to decide the best show at the 2016 Emmys. Which is at the top of its category? Which shows are better than the rest? Vote them up.
