Will ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Emmy Wins Pave Way for Streaming Services to Dominate at Globes, SAG Awards?

The big surprise around the “Handmaid’s” win, of course, was that Hulu — and not Netflix or Amazon — was the first streamer to break through to get one of the Academy’s big awards.

Its content isn’t considered must-have, especially given that sports are absent from its lineup. During the latest quarter, Viacom’s domestic affiliate revenue turned negative for the first time this year, dropping 3 percent amid continued subscriber losses and its lack of leverage with the pay-TV companies. – Tara Lachapelle, Bloomberg Technology
