Our top 10 weekly selection of DSTV Now | Showmax | YouTube | Netflix | Amazon Prime

I am going to keep this very fokken plain and simple: roughly two weeks ago, the Emmy Award winners were announced.  I’ve singled out six of those winners to accompany you for the next two months. I know the majority of people say that awards mean fokol to them but that is the beauty of awards – the majority of people never win any awards in recognition of their work because if mediocrity gets rewarded, we’re only left with ceremonial participation badges. “Awards mean fokol” are words spoken by people who are used to winning fokol. Awards are important measuring sticks, giving us an indication of things, people or places that deserves our money or attention. No, I don’t want to stay in your one star AirBnB, yes, I want fokken champion boerewors. No, you’re not touching my car’s fucking air con! Yes, I would like to watch these six series who won Emmy Awards. I’ll even give the ones who received nominations, the time of day.

You feel me?
Mare of east Town

This show klapped 4 Emmys from 16 nominations: Outstanding Lead Actress: Limited Series (Kate Winslet), Supporting Actor (Evan Peters), Supporting Actress (Julianne Nicholson) and Production Design. Small-town detective Mare Sheehan, investigates a murder while trying to keep her personal life from falling apart. One of the most unexpected twists in a series!
Watch Winslet receive her award and then watch the series if you haven’t yet:

3 Emmys from 15 nominations ain’t bad: Outstanding Actress: Comedy for Jean Smart, Writing & Directing. So far, it is also ranked as the number 1 show for 2021 on Rotten Tomatoes’ list of Best TV of 2021 .  This show  centres around a  legendary Las Vegas comedian who takes on an entitled, down-on-her-luck Gen Z comedy writer in a bid to find fresh material and remain relevant as her performance dates start to dwindle. It has also been renewed for a second season already! Watch Jean Smart receive her award:

Primal received 2 Emmy nominations and won both of them:  Outstanding Animated Program and Individual Achievement In Animation (storyboard artist David Krentz).  It is an absolute must watch series which follows a caveman at the dawn of evolution and a dinosaur on the brink of extinction who become  each other’s only hope of survival in an unforgiving  world. Just take a look for yourself to see why you don’t want to miss out. Two words: holy fuckballs!

Lovecraft Country
This show surprisingly only won 2 Emmys from 18 nominations and now Michael Kenneth Williams  has passed away and he will never ever  the chance to win one. Which is sad, because he is fucking brilliant!  His co-star, Courtney B. Vance did win an award for Guest Actor as Uncle Georgeand had this to say:  “Michael did everything with his full heart open, with his infinite spirit and with way too much style. May he rest in power and let us all honour his immense legacy by being a little more love-forward, a little more endless in thought, a little bit more swaggy in act.”

It is at its heart, a grim story about racism, set in the 1950s. Atticus is a young African-American, sets out on a road trip with his friend and uncle to find his missing father which catapults the three into a struggle for survival against the terrors of Jim Crow-era America and terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a paperback written by pulpy horror author HP Lovecraft. It is a crazy as fuck horror fantasy and at the very least drive some of us to some introspection.

The Good Lord Bird
How the fuck this series only got nominated for 1 Emmy is beyond me. Fair enough, it did win for Outstanding Title Design, but jissis, this was the snub of the year because is way better than a “little miss personality” type award. The Good Lord Bird (militant slavery abolitionist John Brown), is credited with instigating the American Civil War and the series is told from the point of view of Henry “Onion” Shackleford, an enslaved boy who joins Brown’s family of abolitionist soldiers. Maybe it got lost in an overload of movies and series which got released in waves, because I started watching it while a lot of other stuff was competing for my ADHD. Luckily I was reminded about this series today, so I can pick up at episode three where I got interrupted. Come to think of it, I will just restart it and binge it, putting it right at the front of my list. Ethan Hawke for the fucking win!

A Black Lady Sketch Show
Winning 1 Emmy from 5 nominations (Editing for Variety Programming) this show made history when Daysha Broadway, Stephanie Filo, and Jess Hernández became the first all women of colour editing team to be nominated for an Emmy, and then  going on and winning it as well. Why not just dig into this half an hour per episode comedy sketch show and see where it takes you? Probably straight into binging both seasons, laughing your poes off!
