Where To Stream The Big Winners From The 2018 Emmys


Well, the Emmys are done and dusted for another year. And while we love to judge red-carpet outfits from our couches while wearing soup-stained pyjamas, the award ceremony is where the real action is. Think of the winner’s list as your lazy guide to figuring out which shows are worth your time. It’s also worth noting many of the winners are female-lead series this year (fist pump).

Here are our picks from the 2018 Emmy Award winners—happy bingeing!

The Crown

If you weren’t a royalist before watching The Crown, you definitely will be afterwards. Now in its second season, the show follows Queen Elizabeth (affectionately known as Lilibet) from the beginning of her reign, and it's set to continue to the present day in the coming seasons. If you’re still not sold, there’s a lot more humour, sex jokes and family drama in the royal household than you might think. And who knows? You might even grow to like Queen Lizzie’s particularly posh accent.

Wins

‘Outstanding lead actress in a drama series’—Claire Foy
‘Outstanding directing for a drama series’—Stephen Daldry

Where to watch

Netflix

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Created by the same genius who made Gilmore Girls (Amy Sherman-Palladino), this period comedy/drama should definitely be at the top of your binge-watch list. It's set in 1958 and charts the life of housewife Miriam "Midge" Maisel who discovers one drunken night she has a talent for stand-up comedy (we’ve all been there) and then tries it out as a career. We’re partial to a good female-lead story, and this show definitely has one.

Wins

‘Outstanding comedy series’
‘Outstanding lead actress in a comedy series’—Rachel Brosnahan
‘Outstanding writing for a comedy’—Amy Sherman-Palladino
‘Outstanding director for a comedy’— Amy Sherman-Palladino
‘Outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series’—Alex Borstein

Where to watch

Amazon Prime

Game Of Thrones 

Unsurprisingly, these guys came to the party with 22 nominations. Given that and everyone and their dog talks about the show it’s safe to say it’s pretty good. If you haven’t watched it, don’t be put off by the fact you’re 572 episodes behind. They’ll fly by at dragon speed. Unfortunately GOT hasn’t come to Netflix or Stan yet (what a glorious day that will be), but you can catch it on Foxtel, iTunes and Google Play.

Wins

‘Outstanding drama series’
‘Outstanding supporting actor in a drama series’—Peter Dinklage

Godless 

Another American Western drama, in the vein of Deadwood, Justified and (sort of) WestWorld. Godless cleaned up yesterday, with a win for Merritt Wever for Supporting Actress In A Limited Series and Jeff Daniels (the legend) for Supporting Actor. It was also nom’d for Best Writing and Best Director and Best Actress. Not bad at all. There’s only one season and seven eps out so far, so it won’t take long to get up to speed.

‘Outstanding supporting actor’

The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: An American Crime Story

This is the hotly anticipated second season of FX’s true crime anthology, American Crime Story (the first was The People v. O.J. Simpson, which was fking gripping stuff). This time Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski examine the real-life murder of Gianni Versace by spree killer Andrew Cunanan in 1997. This series got a lot of noms yesterday (nine, if you’re counting), including three big wins. Unfortunately, it’s not streaming much right now (not even on FXNOW or FX+). You have to buy and download the eps. But O.J. Simpson wound up on Netflix eventually, so it’s a safe bet we’ll get this one soon.

Wins

‘Directing for a limited series’
‘Lead actor in a limited series’
‘Outstanding limited series’

Amazon

Sinner fans, you'll be happy. Netflix just released a teaser for season 2 in Australia and New Zealand.
