It’s startling to comprehend, as panelist Glenn Whipp factors out, Netflix has by no means gained a collection Emmy — drama or comedy — contemplating its lineage consists of “Home of Playing cards,” “Orange Is the New Black,” “Ozark” and, after all, “The Crown.” Upstart Apple TV+ is in place to interrupt that seal this yr with comedy favourite “Ted Lasso.” Is that this the yr the juggernaut of streamers lumbers off with the Emmy “Crown”?

Season 4 of "The Crown" tells the story of Prince Charles (Josh O'Connor) and Princess Diana (Emma Corrin).
