Parrot: Emmy nominations ‘overvalue’ HBO and Netflix

Our analysis of the 2018 Emmy nominations reveal that this year’s awards are potentially over-valuing HBO and Netflix shows. Both HBO and Netflix over-performed when the popularity of their shows was compared to Emmy nominations, but HBO did so by 11.5% where Netflix did by 7.3%. Our analysis demonstrates that there is a large data spread that exists when network/platform popularity is correlated with the number of nominations received. Using this analysis, Netflix should have received even more nominations given the popularity of their original shows.
