Airs On: Cinemax

The Knick launched its first season on Cinemax around this time last year, to critical acclaim but a very small audience. In an effort to boost viewership for season two (I assume), HBO, parent company to Cinemax, is streaming The Knick on HBONow for a limited time.

Below I have my picks and predictions for the TV nominees.

Best Television Series – Drama
The Affair
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones
The Good Wife
House of Cards

House of Cards is far and away the best show on this list. Netflix should be preparing to celebrate; a streaming-only released series winning one of the big TV titles marks a fairly significant moment in the transformation of the television industry.
Could Win: ………..
It’s a draw. The Drama Series nominees seem so random this year. Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, and The Good Wife are all great shows but seem like the obligatory nominees at this point. The Affair is a new show on Showtime with great potential but has hardly earned a spot on this yet.  Where is Mad Men? What about The Knick? Maybe even The Leftovers?

Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama
Claire Danes, Homeland
Viola Davis, How to Get Away with Murder
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Ruth Wilson, The Affair
Robin Wright, House of Cards (more…)
