You know you are experiencing 'What To Watch’ syndrome when:

  • You endlessly scroll instead of actually watching a show
  • You finding it tough to keep up with newly launched shows
  • You’re unable to decide what to watch even after reading reviews

This is the inescapable reality of our times, but on the bright side, we have the Emmys to thank for.

Emmys To The Rescue

The Emmys act as a great filter for quality content. If a show has won at the Emmys (or for that matter, even got nominated), you can rest assured that it’s worth your time. This year’s Emmys just got done and we have some great news for you.

Hotstar Premium promises to be the ultimate destination for a lot of this year’s Emmy-winning shows.

It’s Showtime

Hotstar Premium has quite an impressive line-up of Emmy-winning shows, but here are our top 5 picks that you should be binge-watching this weekend:

#1 Succession is about a dysfunctional family fighting for control of a media and hospitality empire. It received five Emmy nominations including Outstanding Drama Series and won the award for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. Have you seen how it’s always the dysfunctional families that make news?

#2 The very dark and gripping Chernobyl picked up the Emmy for the Outstanding Limited Series. Here’s a little fact about the show that will blow your mind: The last episode of Chernobyl is rated 9.9 on IMDb.

#3 Barry won Bill Hader the Emmy for a Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. The show has Bill playing a hitman who becomes an acting student. Basically, Barry is all of us because we too are waiting to discover our andar ka kalakaar.

#4 Jodie Comer won the Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Killing Eve. The show is about Eve, an investigator out to capture an assassin (played by Jodie), and how they develop a mutual obsession. That’s eerily similar to the relationship we share with our bosses.
