On July 16, 2019, Ken Jeong & D’Arcy Carden have revealed the list of nominees for 71st Emmy awards. Before proceeding, I have to ask a question,” Will you see this year’s Emmy? Well, after the last year’s disappointing Emmy awards, I’m a bit Skeptical. Should I watch it or not? Besides, after an 11% decline in viewership, it’s obvious for me or you to have some doubts.
Now, if I talk about this year’s Emmy Nominations, the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones has broken the 25-year old record of NYPD Blue (26 nominations) by earning 32 nominations in a single calendar year.

I will conclude the post with the hope that unlike last year’s ‘boring’ Emmy Awards, I will witness a fun event. To make the event successful, the makers need to pull some ‘Out of the Box’ idea. Otherwise, the ratings of the Emmy will continue to decline at much faster rates.
