Hulu’s Most Awarded Original Shows!

Hulu has given us some amazing shows with award winning writing, acting, and more. Here are 5 shows other than ‘The Bear’ from the network that have been the most awarded over the years.

Hulu has proven that they have no shortage of fantastic and heavily awarded originals. The Bear, of which the third season just came out this past week, is just one great example of a Hulu original which is not only very popular but has also won numerous Emmys, Golden Globes and other awards. The Bear, while amazing, is not Hulu’s only highly awarded original, so here are 5 of the most awarded Hulu originals for you to enjoy right now!

Only Murders in the Building

Awards Won: 54

Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building remains one of the most nominated Hulu originals of all time. The show received a whopping 17 Emmy nominations in 2022. The show’s actors are not only fantastic, but all aspects of the show including the costumes, music, and editing, which not surprisingly, is reflected in the well rounded 17 nominations.

The Handmaid’s Tale

Awards Won: 90

Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale remains the most awarded Hulu Originals. The show in total has won 15 Emmy Awards and the Golden Globe for Best Television Series Drama. For a few years The Handmaid’s Tale was THE television show dominating the award circuit. Hulu has outdone itself here creating an exciting and original book adaptation that has the awards to prove it!

Normal People

Awards Won: 18

Hulu’s Normal People is a heart wrenching show that keeps you enthralled beginning to end. The Hulu original is great in all aspects but its acting is particularly outstanding, which is why it’s no surprise that Paul Mescal was not only nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, but won the British Academy Television Award for Best Actor. Paul Mescal’s acting could be reason enough to watch this stunning Hulu limited series.


Awards Won: 18

Hulu’s Dopesick might be a lesser known Hulu Original but that doesn’t mean it didn’t garner an insanely impressive list of award nominations. Hulu’s 58 Emmy nominations in 2022 were in a large part thanks to Dopesick, which had a total of 14 nominations. Dopesick won Emmy’s for both Outstanding Cinematography and Outstanding Lead Actor, appropriately highlighting the show’s both beautiful shots and unbelievable acting. 

The Dropout

Awards Won: 12

Hulu’s The Dropout details Amanda Seyfried playing Elizabeth Holmes, who attempted to change healthcare as we know it after dropping out of college and starting a tech company. Amanda Seyfried puts everything she has in this role, and it definitely paid off. The actress won both the Emmy and the Golden Globe for Outstanding and Best Performance by a lead actress for the show. However, Amanda Seyfriend isn’t the only great thing about the show as it also won a Critics Choice Award for Best Limited Series, making it an all around must see. 

The Bear, while in-arguably one of the best shows on television right now, is not Hulu’s only noteworthy original, and hopefully this list has proven that. Whether you decide to start with the heartbreaking acting in Normal People, or the witty humor in Only Murders in the Building, you will not be disappointed. Happy viewing!
