Best TV Series – Drama (Tie)
“Transparent.” Despite being billed as a comedy by Amazon (and the Emmys), Jill Soloway’s mega queer, ultra Jewish series has more LGBTQ characters than not, and each of them is given a distinct and fully-fleshed storyline that doesn’t rely on stereotypes. Instead, it has their characters questioning them as they straddle the line of perpetuating them or discarding them altogether. Season 3 of Transparent was unlike anything else on television past or present, and while there are certainly a lot of humor in some moments, its dramatic elements and heavier plot points are closer to home than perhaps any ever before delved into on any mainstream screen.
