Streaming Services Amazon, Netflix And HBO Win Big At Emmys

Streaming services are continuing their march into Hollywood, competing head-on with network television not only for viewership numbers, but now also for critical acclaim and industry recognition.
At last night’s Primetime Emmy awards, services including Amazon, Netflix and – if you count it – HBO, which this year launched its own over-the-top option for cord cutters with HBO NOW, dominated the annual awards show, scoring trophies for “Transparent” (Amazon), “Orange is the New Black” (Netflix), “Game of Thrones” (HBO) and “Veep” (HBO).
