    Revisit, comment and post your personal winners (out of nominees) for the 2017 Emmys where the winners were:

    Drama Series: The Handmaid’s Tale
    Comedy Series: Veep
    Limited Series: Big Little Lies

    It was a historic year because Hulu became the first streaming service to win Best Series.

    Not making the connection at the time, but this was the year of the women reflecting a moment in history with the top scripted prizes going to projects centered on women. Also, the “TV Movie” 🙃 went to the Black Mirror episode San Junipero.

    As much as I love The Handmaid’s tale, Chicanery had flawless writing and should’ve easily won the category.
