As years have progressed, each Emmy Awards has seen more and more streaming services make their appearance in the competition. And here we are in 2016, with the largest list of TV shows primarily viewed on streaming services absolutely cleaning up.
Here are the total counts of all the streaming services (we’re including HBO for comparison, mostly):
- Amazon Video: 16 nominations
- Crackle: 3 nominations
- HBO: 94 nominations
- Hulu: 2 nominations
- Netflix: 54 nominations
- Vimeo: 1 nomination
- YouTube: 3 nominations
Crackle, Hulu and Vimeo are all firsts on this list, with Netflix seeing a big jump from a little over 30 nominations to 52 this year. ‘House of Cards’ made a big jump this year, as most viewers generally thought the show’s fourth season was far superior to season three.
Crackle got the nod for its hit comedy series ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ starring Jerry Seinfeld, which has been going strong for eight years, so we’re glad to see the series getting some recognition with this nomination.
Hulu joins the ranks of nominations for their miniseries ‘11.22.63’ being recognized for special effects. Their comedy short featuring Triumph the Insult Comic Dog also got recognition with a nomination.
Vimeo, who has just started sponsoring original content on their distribution platform earned some recognition, alongside YouTube’s three picks.

HBO cleaned house of course, as is tradition, with nearly 100 nominations. ‘Game of Thrones‘ tops the list with a stunning 23 nominations, ‘VEEP‘ landed 17 nominations and startup comedy series ‘Silicon Valley‘ ended up with 11.
