September 19 will be the 73rd Emmy Awards, celebrating the best of television from the past year. Due to delays on contracts and streaming platform expansions to Latin America, it often happens that some of the winners are not yet available in the region. Although in the last time, they are less and less every year.
The total nominations for each platform or network is 130 for HBO Max, 129 for Netflix, 71 for Disney +, 46 for NBC and 34 for Apple TV +. Of those mentioned, the only one that has not yet reached the mainland sector is Apple’s service, while NBC’s products were made available through different channels.
The Mandalorian, the Disney + series of the Star Wars franchise, is the most nominated along with The Crown (Netflix), appearing in 24 categories. In the last edition of the event, the Latin American public had been left out of the program’s boom, since Disney’s OTT hadn’t launched in their countries until November 2020, months after the product was chosen for the shortlist of best series of drama.
Also thanks to the expansion of Disney +, audiences in the region will be able to cheer on the second most promising show of the gala, WandaVision, which received 23 nominations.
On the other hand, the Hulu original, The Handmaid’s Tale, is next in the race with 21 appearances in the categories. While the platform still hasn’t arrived in Latin America, the series has reached several of its countries through different agreements with services and operators. Currently, its four seasons are available on Paramount +, Viacom CBS ‘OTT.
Finally, the only show in the top 5 of the Emmys that is still not available in the Latin American region is Ted Lasso, the Apple TV + comedy that received 20 nominations for its second season. Just as the platform still does not show news about its arrival in Latin America, there has not been news of any contract so that the series starring Jason Sudeikis can be seen from another platform.
