The Emmys are done and dusted for another year so now is the perfect time to catch up with all the winners you may have missed.
As expected, the 2018 Emmy winners has sparked many debates over which shows and stars deserved it and which were straight-up robbed. While the results are bound to stir up controversy, there’s no denying that each and every winner and nominee is a must-watch for their own reasons. The massive presence of streaming originals and fast-tracked TV series also means Australians aren’t the last ones to know when it comes to the premium television in the spotlight.
Here’s where you can stream every Emmy winning show in Australia.

HBO’s freshman comedy Barry secured an impressive 13 Emmy nominations this year, proving yet again that the bizarre, yet refreshing Bill Hader comedy has plenty to offer.
Two of the show’s leads took home the win this year with Henry Winkler winning Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and Bill Hader taking best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. It was also nominated for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series
Barry follows a low-level hitman who finds himself drawn into the world of acting and struggles to balance his newfound passion with his regular "job". Thanks to a bold premise, some effective dark humour and a bunch of brilliant performances, the series quickly went from promising to must-see TV even before it reached its Season 1 finale. If you haven’t watched it yet, tune in on Foxtel Now.
Despite favourable reviews from critics, feminist western Godless never became a bona fide hit for Netflix.
Hopefully, things will change following the show’s 12 Emmy nominations and two wins for Jeff Bridges (Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie) and Merrit Weaver (Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie).
The show centres on a group of women from an isolated town who band together to confront a notorious criminal and his gang of outlaws. Godless has all the traditional components of a solid western but also benefits from a female-driven ensemble which easily makes it stand out from the crowd. Binge it on Netflix.
3. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won big at the Golden Globes and managed to repeat this success at this year's Emmys, taking home 5 Emmy wins, more than any other TV show.
The Amazon series, coming from the creators of beloved show Gilmore Girls, scored 14 nominations overall. Besides Outstanding Comedy Series, Rachel Brosnahan was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, with cast-mates Alex Borstein, Tony Shalhoub, and Jane Lynch scoring nods as well.
Brosnahan plays Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a housewife whose life takes a dramatic turn after her husband leaves her and she discovers an unexpected talent for stand-up comedy. Did we mention that the series takes place in the 50s? Stream it on Amazon Prime.

4. USS Callister (Black Mirror)
USS Callister is the first episode of the fourth season of anthology series Black Mirror, which you should watch in its entirety to realise just how doomed the human race truly is. However, if you’re only planning to watch one episode, USS Callister is a great pick as it’s definitely the breakout instalment of Season 4. It follows a programmer who simulates a Star Trek-like space adventure within a game and uses it to order around his co-workers.
The episode received seven Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Television Movie, ultimately taking home the latter.
Black Mirror is available on Netflix.
5. The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
The second instalment in the American Crime Story anthology focuses on the 1997 murder of designer Gianni Versace by spree killer Andrew Cunanan. The series scored 18 Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Limited Series. Darren Criss was also nominated for his career-making performance as Cunanan. On the same note, Penélope Cruz, Judith Light, Ricky Martin, Edgar Ramirez and Finn Wittrock received recognition for their supporting roles.
On the big night, the true crime took home three wins for Lead Actor in a Limited Series (Darren Criss), Directing for a Limited Series (Ryan Murphy) and Outstanding Limited Series.
Sadly, season 2 of the anthology is only available to purchase from digital retailers at the moment. However, you can watch Season 1, which revolves around the murder trial of O.J. Simpson, on both Foxtel Now and Netflix.
6. The Crown
Netflix’s ambitious period piece is once again in the running for Outstanding Drama Series at the 2018 Emmys, and for good reason. The lavish show managed to somehow surpass the high bar it set for itself with Season 1, delivering a top-notch sophomore instalment with plenty of addictive storytelling and superb cinematography. Overall, The Crown scored 13 nominations, including acting nods for Claire Foy, Vanessa Kirby, Matt Smith and Matthew Goode.
Of those 13 nominations, The Crown took home two awards for Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Claire Foy) and Directing for a Drama Series (Stephen Daldry).
The Crown follows the life of Queen Elizabeth II, from the 1940s to modern times. Following Season 2, the show was recast to emphasise the passage of time. That means that Claire Foy already handed over the reins to Olivia Colman, who is set to portray the Queen for the next two seasons. To get your royal fix, binge the period drama on Netflix.
7. Game of Thrones
The seventh season of Game of Thrones was a doozy and the Emmy voters seem to agree. The HBO hit led the nominations with 22, including Outstanding Drama Series as well as acting nods for Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage in the supporting categories.
The fiery fantasy took the throne for three awards this year: Outstanding Guest Actress (Dianna Rigg), Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Peter Dinklage)and Outstanding Drama Series.
If you’re unfamiliar with the series, it follows several families in a fantasy setting during the battle for the coveted Iron Throne. There are also ice zombies and dragons to look out for. All glorious seven seasons are available to stream on Foxtel Now.
Westworld came close to equalising Game of Thrones this year in Emmy nominations with 21. The show was nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, with Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright and Jimmi Simpson all securing nominations in acting categories.
The most deserving of these nominations was, of course, Thandie Newton, who took the win for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
Based on the 1973 film of the same name, the series is set in a futuristic park where visitors can live out their fantasies through artificial consciousness with the help of robotic hosts. If the premise alone isn’t enough to pique your interest, we don’t know what will. Two seasons are available to stream on Foxtel Now.
9. The Americans
The Americans wrapped up its final season this year and managed a hail mary with four Emmy nominations and two wins: Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg nabbed Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series for the episode "Start" and Matthew Rhys took the win for Lead Actor in a Drama Series.
The FX series, The Americans, is streaming on Foxtel Now.

Now for the nominees...
While the winners have been called there's still absolutely no reason you shouldn't check out the rest of the nominees. In fact, we'd argue that some of the runner-ups are more worthy of your attention. Atlanta, Twin Peaks and Wild, Wild Country are just a few must-see TV shows that didn't take home a win this year.
