It stands to reason that the crown jewel in HBO's premium programming would get the super-sized treatment once again this Emmy award season. Because of its air dates Game of Thrones missed out on last year's Emmys, so let's see if it can add to its cumulative 106 nominations and 38 wins this season.
Westworld season 2 Emmy fyc billboard
The sophomore season of HBO's critically-acclaimed sci-fi drama Westworld was also getting some support in the city skyline. Last year the adaptation of Michael Crichton's 1973 film of the same name received 22 nominations and walked away with five trophies, can it better that this time around?
