The general entertainment field saw the following shows being honored: HBO dark comedy Barry, which snagged acting Emmys for stars Bill Hader and Henry Winkler this past September; Hannah Gadsby: Nanette, an acclaimed Netflix standup special; AMC/BBC America critical darling Killing Eve, coming off a third season renewal; Netflix’s Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj; revolutionary ballroom drama Pose, which returns for a second season this June; HBO sketch series Random Acts of Flyness, created by and starring Terence Nance; the final season of Russian spy thriller The Americans; Netflix dark comedy The End of the F***ing World; and the third season of NBC’s The Good Place.

Shows that were nominated this year but didn’t make the final cut include autism comedy Atypical; Amazon’s Julia Roberts vehicle Homecoming; HBO Italian drama My Brilliant Friend; Lena Waithe drama The Chi; and SundanceNow dramedy This Close.
