All of the nominees in this category are amazing! They each carry their own and have their own fan followings.
Everyone has Royal Family fever right now. Fans are waiting with baited breath to see what happens. The Crown does a great job giving people some of the history behind the Royal Family. It portrays the most famous monarchy in history with Queen Elizabeth II played by the marvelous Claire Foy. Her husband Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh is played by Matt Smith. The show does a magnificent job with being historically accurate while also being entertaining.
Game of Thrones
I love all of the shows that are nominated but Game of Thrones is by far my favorite. Not only have I seen the series multiple times I have also read all of the books. So many things have changed throughout the series. We have seen characters come and go over the seven seasons. One thing that never changes is the storytelling. David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, and George R. R. Martin always make sure that the story comes to life from the pages.
The Handmaid’s Tale
The Handmaid’s Tale has taken the world by storm. It was based on a dystopian society in which women are losing the ability to carry children. The ones who can are then segmented and divided up strictly to reproduce. This show came out right when the new administration was taking office and was said to have many similarities to our current world. It was groundbreaking and risky. Elizabeth Moss and the cast did an amazing job in bringing this story to life.
Last year when Stranger Things was first released not many people knew what it was. Now, it is one of the most watched shows on a streaming site. The children who are the leads cannot go anywhere anymore without being recognized and bombarded by fans. Stranger Things has now been picked up for a third season. We are bringing the 80’s back!
This Is Us
This Is Us is a breakthrough show that tells the story of an unconventional family and all of their trials and tribulations. What draws so many to this show is that at some point, this show has made us all look at ourselves and revisit experiences that we have had in our lives. From mental health struggles to addiction to the loss of a loved one, at some point we have all had our own fair share of problems.
AND THE WINNER IS……
The Handmaid’s Tale! This was a well deserved win! The entire cast and crew did an amazing job at bringing this story to life and shedding light on some difficult realities in our world.
