Cable Nets Again Rule Emmy Nominations

The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations were recently announced, and cable programs lead the way, once again. After the announcement, the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) decided to research why cable programs consistently perform well at the Emmys.

In the recent article, the NCTA cites cable’s creative freedom to explore themes that network TV might not. As the NCTA stated, “audiences have made it clear what they’re after: narratives that push social boundaries and defy conventional norms, and actors who can pull it off.”
