It’s always bothered me that the Emmys aren’t considered the beginning of awards season. That honor goes to the Hollywood Film Awards, which occur towards the end of the year and aren’t even aired on TV for the public to see.

There’s a diverse range of actors and shows nominated yearly, and history is made yearly with new nominees, winners and winning streaks. So yeah, the Emmys are a pretty important night in television. If you watch TV, you should watch the Emmys.
