The "head-turner" for this year, "Watchmen" became an instant hit after it landed the most Emmys 2020 nominations among all shows.

The TV series started to conquer HBO on October 20, 2019.

As a fan of the comic series himself, Damon Lindelof created the limited series with a remix of the comic and his own idea. Together with its main cast -- Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Black Nelson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Jeremy Irons -- Lindelof brought an award-worthy series for all fans.

Big Little Lies

One of most-watched HBO titles, "Big Little Lies" is no longer a stranger on the Emmy Awards stage.

The 2014 drama series flaunted the talents of Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz. Ever since it aired on TV, the award-winning show received critical acclaim from different awarding bodies.

Previously, its first season received 16 Primetime Emmy Award nominations. Out of those recognitions, they nabbed eight awards, including Outstanding Limited series. Its actresses also bagged awards on the same body and Golden Globe Awards.

For fans of teen series, Sam Levinson's "Euphoria" is the best if you want a rollercoaster ride.

This Israeli-based story centers around the life of Rue Bennett (Zendaya) and other high school students who experience sex and drugs at a very young age. Aside from its plot, "Euphoria" also received recognition for its cinematography, score and performances.

Bad Education

The 2019 crime comedy-drama film is based on the true story of the largest embezzlement case in U.S. history. 

"I wanted to write something more personal about my hometown," the film's writer Mike Makowsky told Vanity Fair in 2019, "and this story was ostensibly the biggest thing that has ever happened in it."

Furthermore, Hugh Jackman's appearance as Frank Tassone is one of the series' biggest bonuses.
