This year’s Emmys ceremony is filled with some of our favorite performers and creatives. From HBO’s finest with Game of Thrones, Barry, Succession, and more to Phoebe Waller-Bridge coming in hot with both Fleabag and Killing Eve, there is something for everyone this year. Not only do we have brilliant performances from Ted Danson on The Good Place to the amazing work on Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us, but this year’s ceremony is stacked with everyone from your favorite comedies, dramas, and even reality shows.

To be honest, it’s hard to pick who I want to win more. (Actually, it’s not hard. I want Barry and Succession to win because I want you all to watch them but still, it is stacked.) But, like every award season, there are sure to be some upsets or surprise wins. Personally, I’d love to see Russian Doll take home awards (if you haven’t watched it, GO). Still, it could be Game of Thrones and The Marvelous Ms. Maisel all night and I probably wouldn’t complain either.

Root for your favorite and buckle in, we have the full list of 2019 winners from this year’s Emmys!
