Almost everyone becomes very defensive when it comes to their television shows. They believe their show is currently the best or that their favorite actor is above all the other actors on television. The Emmy Awards are here to help decide those arguments. The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards were held on September 18th in Los Angeles and was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. HBO shined once again, with a total of 40 nominations, including the leading drama and comedy nominations with Veep (10) and Game of Thrones (9). Below is the full list of television’s biggest winners.
