I’m a little hit or miss when it comes to awards shows. Sometimes I know when they’re on and stay glued to tv for the entire show, and other times I’m like “oh, that was on last night?” Of course, who is hosting is always a big factor. But no matter what, I’m always interested in who won…and what people were wearing. It’s a guilty pleasure. 🙂
With each awards season, Netflix shows gain more and more recognition. In 10 years, it’ll be the Netflix awards…just watch!
At this year’s SAG awards, there were three big Netflix winners. Let’s check them out so you can add them to your watch list asap! I’ve already watched one, just started another, and will be adding the third to my list. 😉
Ensemble in a comedy series
“Orange is the New Black”
I mean, is this even a surprise? Like most shows, I was late to jump on the OITNB bandwagon, and now I’m “Is it on yet? When does it come back? How long has it been? Forever? Seems like forever.”
The series revolves around a woman in her 30s living in New York City who is sentenced to a minimum-security women’s federal prison in upstate New York.
Already on Season 5, there’s plenty to watch and rewatch just in time for the next season…usually premiering in June.
I JUST started watching Stranger Things yesterday. Brett watched all of Season 1 while he had the flu a few months ago (the flu? riiiiight) and is rewatching it with me. So far, it’s very intriguing and I am left thinking about certain things after I watch it, which is usually a good sign. I also love the total 80’s vibe of the entire show.
The show is about the disappearance of a young boy, and the appearance of a psychokinetic girl, who helps his friends in their search, while the boy’s older brother, his mother, and the town police chief start their own investigations. (wiki)

Claire Foy, “The Crown”
Male actor in a drama series
John Lithgow, “The Crown”
The Crown tells the biographical story about the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. I don’t know much about it, mostly because Brett hasn’t watched it yet and he’s usually the one that informs me of things I need to see, but since I love historical pieces, I will definitely be watching this after Stranger Things.
On an end note, I’ll use Wynona Ryder’s reactions at the SAG awards to describe my reaction if you don’t head to Netflix to watch these shows now:
