HBO has always been one of the best, something that’s shown constantly with the way fans and critics adore the shows that have been produced by the infamous network. Such recognition was shown yet again during this years Creative Arts Emmy‘s where HBO took home more trophies to add to their every growing collection!

This freshman thriller-drama was an immediate fan favorite, staring one of the best ensembles we’ve seen in a long time and providing a fresh perspective on the genre. We all love it already and apparently, so do the award shows!
