The long wait for the awards ceremony finally ends on September 23, 2019. The Emmy’s will be once again awarding TV shows and movies for their exemplary performances in different fields and the competition this year is tight! So, if you’re looking to binge on Emmy-worthy shows (whether it’s comedy, horror, documentary) while waiting for the big show, we’ve got your back! Here’s a list of all the nominated shows that you can watch on FOX+.
1. What We Do In The Shadow
Outstanding Cinematography For A Single-Camera Series (Half-Hour)
Outstanding Sound Editing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (Half-Hour) And Animation
If you mix apartment sitcoms with vampires, then you’ll get What We Do In The Shadows. Set in modern day New York, join four vampire roommates who lived together for hundreds of years as they go about their daily lives. In their hilarious quest to blend in with the common man, audiences see the absurd ways that humans and vampires are actually a lot alike.
2. Modern Family
Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (Half-Hour) And Animation
A show that changes our perspective on what a perfect family is supposed to be, Modern Family tells the story of three different families that range from “conventional” to what most people would consider as “unconventional”. We see that no matter how strikingly different each family is, they all still go through the same struggles of raising kids, connecting with their partners, and figuring out how to handle the day-to-day. At the end of the day, we learn that a perfect family is one that is anchored in love, trust, and acceptance — no matter how hilarious the journey to getting there may be.
3. Who Is America?

Outstanding Picture Editing For Variety Programming

Sacha Baron Cohen is back for another jaw-dropping and controversial political satire. A far-right conspiracy theorist who is also a citizen journalist?

These are but some of the characters that Sacha uses to interview bigwigs like Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein, and Roy Moore.
