The Emmy Awards were held recently, and it had two big winners. It is quite interesting to notice that neither of the big winners was produced by normal cable networks like CBS, NBC or Fox, but by HBO and by Hulu.
Based on this information you may have guessed already which shows won the big awards. It was not The Mindy Project, and it wasn’t Westworld. Instead, it was The Handmaid’s Tale and Big Little Lies.
The Handmaid’s Tale is a quite brutal Hulu TV series telling the story of life in a conservative world where girls were held hostage to give birth to boys for rich people. I haven’t watched this show continuously, but I watched the first episode. It was incredibly well made, but it wasn’t my sort of series.
I have, however, watched Big Little Lies, and after watching it, I wrote a big article on the TV series. Are you considering Big Little Lies as your next TV series to watch? Read the article first to understand if it is a TV series for you or not.
It isn’t entirely fair to call Big Little Lies a TV series, after all, it is rather a short film made up of seven episodes. I understand why Nicole Kidman won an Emmy Award for her performance. It might understand why Alexander Skarsgaard won an Emmy Award as well, even though I so much hated his role in the TV series, that I would never even consider giving the actor himself an Emmy for his performance.
