    Which one do you consider more prestigious? In relation to the TV field only, of course?

    It seems like a trivial question to me, I always considered the Emmys to be more prestigious since they are the “Academy Awards” of television. They are also specialise on TV only, unlike the GG which are combined.
    But I noticed sites like IMDb give priority to GG wins over Emmys, so iv’e been wondering if it’s only me.

    Sorry if there are awards experts who find this question stupid haha… I always wondered which one people consider the most prestigious award

    Prestigious? The Emmys by a mile.

    As a ceremony? The Globes by a mile.

    100%, without a doubt, the Emmys. The HFPA comprises 90-100 members while the TV academy comprises thousands. Sure, a trailer is more likely to say “Golden Globe nominee” than “Emmy nominee” – I’m assuming because the Globes also recognize movies and for some odd reasons those are still seen as more prestigious – but personally I feel like Emmys have given us much more inspired choices lately. Globe voters are suckers for A-listers at their ceremony, which is why they often nominate them. Plus, they have such an odd affinity for new shows and a constant desire to be first group to recognize a show. The Globes are fun and all to predict, but the Emmys are much more compelling.

    I honestly disagree with that. Just with the drama series winners the GG have offered more diversity (The Affair, Mr Robot, The Crown, THT, The Americans, Succession) than just giving the award to GoT 4 times. The same can be said with Lead actress in a comedy with truly inspired winners such as Amy Phoeler, Gina Rodriguez, Rachel Bloom, Tracee Ellis Ross than just JLD over and over again.

    I think the Emmys and Critics Choice Awards have the best winners for tv shows.

    Emmys are more prestigious as it’s an actual industry award with a much larger voting body. But with that being said the Globes is definitely more popular in terms of the ceremony and who is in attendance. I agree that the Globes inclusion of movies in its awards makes it a more common for people to be noted a “Golden Globe winner” over “Emmy Award winner” because the Globe win could be for TV or film.

    I am very proud that the Emmys have 100% of the vote.

    Emmys in terms of being prestigious but in terms of supporting the underdog the Globes are better.

    The fact the Emmys never gave Buffy the Vampire Slayer a single acting nomination or a single above the line Emmy win is evil.

    IMDb gives priority to film over television.  The Globes are listed first so that they can be listed right under the Oscars or so that someone’s most noted film work can be listed ahead of television, but the Globes happen to award television as well.  They should just list the Emmys ahead anyway though.

    Emmy are prestige and I’m fully satisfied when a favorite of mine wins an Emmy. Golden Globe is not the same thing.

    BUT over the years Golden Globes choices have been some times really satisfying.

    Maybe it was the tape system, but it’s sad so many TV great performers never won an Emmy when other people has too many.
    Did Doris Roberts and Brad Garrett really deserve all those Emmys, for example?
    And how many great comedic actresses have been ignored?
    Candice Bergen, Helen Hunt, Julia Louis-Dreyfus —c’mon, too much for them.

    The Golden Globes rewarded people like Steve Carell, Martin Sheen and Anthony Edwards when the Emmys completly failed! And Laura Dern for Enlightened, Amy Poehler, Gina Rodriguez, Rachel Bloom, Tracy Ellis Ross.
    Kim Catrall for Sex And The City. Chloe Sevigny for Big Love. Katey Segal for Sons Of Anarchy.
    Frances Conroy and Rachel Griffiths for Six Feet Under!!
    Too bad all this people didn’t win at the Emmys too…

    Easy. The one you need for an EGOT.

    But the Globes do hold influence in shaping the Oscars race at least, that is where their power mostly is. Plus being such a small awards body they do tend to surprise on occasion and usually it tends to be in awarding new talent on the rise.

    I wrote about this in the Killing Eve thread. There’s no comparison. The GG have higher ratings than the Emmys (18.3 million for 2020 GG vs. 6.9 million for the 2019 Emmys), but that’s because it’s the first major televised awards ceremony of the year before the Oscars, which still is the most watched awards show in the world. The GG have, unfortunately, a considerable influence in shaping the outcome of the awards that follow it (not just the Oscars), like how this year’s acting awards were the exact same for the major televised awards.

    With regards to the Oscars/movies, many awards followers use the GG for stats. For example, every Oscar Best Picture winner has been nominated for screenplay at the GG since 2005.

    However, because of the timing of the Emmys (September), it either follows the Emmys a few months later or it is 8 months ahead of the next Emmys, and so its influence on TV is not as significant. I’ve seen a lot of people poking fun and trashing the GG, so I don’t think it’s considered to be a particularly prestigious award.

    Since the Emmys are voted on by people in the television industry and the GG are voted on by 90 foreign journalists, there’s simply no comparison that the Emmys are the most prestigious award in TV.
