No Cable, No Problem: How to Stream the 2019 Emmy Winners

These days, you don’t need a cable television subscription or even an antenna to watch some of the best shows on TV. Streaming video platforms not only offer a wide array of quality TV series, but they’re quickly becoming awards-season darlings, too.

This year’s pool of nominees for Primetime Emmy Awards and the winners are no exception, with all the shows nominated in the night’s most prestigious categories currently available to stream online. Here’s where you can watch them.

Outstanding Drama Series

Game of Thrones (Winner)

One of the most widely watched TV series of all time, and one of this year’s heavy favorites to bring home a pile of Primetime Emmy Awards, HBO’s adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire concluded its eight-season run with a controversial (to put it mildly) final arc. Nevertheless, the series received 32 Emmy nominations for season 8, breaking the single-season record for any show in TV history, and bringing its current, record-holding tally to 161 Emmy nominations over all eight seasons. All eight seasons are available on HBO Now.

Russian Doll

Pour Nadia Vulvokov de Natasha Lyonne, c'est la fête de l'enfer.

Oui, il y a beaucoup de Groundhog Day  dans  l' ADN de Russian Doll , mais la série a plus qu'assez de rebondissements pour être autonome. Lyonne, qui a co-créé la série et a écrit et réalisé quelques-uns de ses épisodes, se transforme en une performance hors du commun, et le ton à la fois plein d'espoir et sombre hilarant permet de se gaver facilement en une seule séance. Vous pouvez trouver la saison unique de Russian Doll sur Netflix.
