Game
of Thrones

Based
on George R. R. Martin’s A Song Of Fire and Ice novels, this fantasy series
revolves around the power struggles to sit on the Iron Throne. First available
to stream on Showmax in South Africa, the final season played against fantasy
tropes to the dismay of many fans, but The Academy Of Television Arts and
Sciences recognised it for the landmark, record-breaking show it is.

Nominations:
32, including Best Drama, Best Actor (Kit Harington as Jon Snow), Best Actress
(Emilia Clarke), Best Supporting Actor (Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy, Nikolaj
Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, and Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister) and
four of the six Best Supporting Actress nominations (Lena Headey as Cersei
Lannister, Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, Maisie Williams as Arya Stark, and
Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth).

Emmy
history: It’s won Best Drama the last three times it entered and Best
Supporting Actor three times for Peter Dinklage. 2019 marks the first
nominations for Sophie Turner, Alfie Allen, and Gwendoline Christie.

All 8 seasons are available to stream on Showmax.

Chernobyl

First
available on Showmax, Chernobyl dramatizes the true story of the 1986 nuclear
accident, one of the worst man-made catastrophes in history, and of the brave
men and women who made incredible sacrifices to save Europe from unimaginable
disaster.

Nominations:
19, including Best Limited Series, Best Actor (Jared Harris as Valery Legasov),
Best Supporting Actor (Stellan Skarsgård as Boris Shcherbina), and Best

Barry

First
screened on Showmax in South Africa, Barry tells the story of a depressed war
vet-turned-hitman who finds passion and romance in a local acting class while
on a job in LA. As Season 2 opens, Barry tries to extricate himself from a
violent criminal triangle involving the Chechen, Bolivian and Burmese
underworld – not to mention some deeply suspicious LA detectives and Monroe
Fuches, Barry’s former boss, who has found it exceedingly difficult to hire a
replacement as capable as his onetime ace assassin.

Nominations:
17, including Best Comedy, Best Actor (Bill Hader as Barry), Best Supporting
Actress (Sarah Goldberg as Sally), and three of the six Best Supporting Actor
nominees (Anthony Carrigan as NoHo Hank, Stephen Root as Fuches, and Henry
Winkler as Gene Cousineau).

Emmy

Actor and Best Supporting Actor Emmys respectively, while Barry also won Best
Sound Mixing. 2019 marks the first nominations for Sarah Goldberg, Anthony
Carrigan, and Stephen Root.
