This year’s Emmy races are set to feature acclaimed newcomers like “Barry,” “GLOW,” and “Killing Eve” and returning heavyweights such as “Stranger Things,” “The Crown,” and last year’s best drama winner “The Handmaid’s Tale.” HBO’s juggernaut “Game of Thrones” was ineligible last year because of its premiere date, but it’s back in the race this year and is expected to earn numerous nominations.
