Emmy Award Winners 2019

Once again, the biggest night in television is over. The tuxes are back in the wardrobe, the highest of heels are back on the rack. But who were the Emmy winners in 2019?

Well, there were definitely some surprises. Namely, the fact that Game of Thrones managed to win outstanding drama series in its final season, given it was more than a little divisive with fans. Another surprise is that neither Jared Harris nor Stellan Skarsgard managed to win for their career-defining performances in HBO's stellar Chernobyl. Though, thankfully, the writing and directing both took top honors, and Jharrel Jerome's win for When They See Us was fully deserved.

Elsewhere, there were further wins for Peter Dinklage, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Without further ado, here are all the Emmy winners for 2019:

Thems your Emmy winners in 2019. If you've made it all the way to the end of this list, we're going to assume you're quite fond of the moving pictures. If you are, you'll surely know that some of entertainment's biggest films and TV shows have been set in New York. So, why not go and visit some of them? These are our favorites.

The Friends Apartment Building

West Village

The Friends apartment building will be there for you, when the rain starts to p- sorry. Yes, while the apartments themselves were shot in a studio (sorry to break the illusion, there simply ain't enough space for the audience in a real New York apartment), you can definitely go and see the building shown in the establishing shots.

They may have never lived there, and they may have never been actual real people, but you followed their lives. Their loves. Their foibles. So, go outside the apartment and use your imagination. Just don't call up their names. Real people live there.

Bethesda Terrace and Fountain

Central Park

This iconic Central Park location has been in cinema for over a hundred years, so it's no surprise that it's the backdrop for many scenes in film and TV shows too. Sex and the City, Annie Hall, and even John Wick: Chapter 2 all had iconic scenes right by the fountain. Go and see it. It is lovely.

Empire State Building


Arguably New York's most iconic landmark, if not the world's, the Empire State Building has been a staple of American film and TV for decades. Superman knocked its antenna off, and then promptly put it back, while battling General Zod in Superman 2. King Kong famously scaled it way back in the 30's. And it was annihilated by aliens in action sci-fi epic Independence Day. If you've never been, or are hoping to revisit, make a day of it.

Rockefeller Center


The home of NBC Studios, The Rockefeller Center houses some of the network's biggest shows like Emmy 2019 winners Saturday Night Live, and past winners 30 Rock. It's also another location for John Wick: Chapter 2 (boy does Mr. Wick get around NYC in that one), as well as The Godfather, Rocky III, Annie, and many, many others.

If you don't know the building, you may well recognize the giant Christmas tree and ice rink they set up outside during the holidays. It features in Elf, Home Alone 2, and Serendipity. Go there. You will love it.

New York Public Library

5th Avenue

And finally, why not go visit the New York Public Library. Not only do you need to read more. You do. Stop pretending. You also get to see the site of some amazing movies. Revisit one of Ghostbusters' most iconic scenes, or where Spiderman went on his field trip before his fateful spider bite.

And when you're done seeing all of your favorite NYC film locations in person, why not explore them virtually?
