Sunday night was a reminder of Amazon’s quest to take over all aspects of human existence. At the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards last night, the online retailing giant took home six Emmys. Three different Amazon original series won awards: “Transparent,” “The Man in the High Castle,” and “Mozart in the Jungle.”

Transparent” won for outstanding actor in a comedy (Jeffrey Tambor) and outstanding director in a comedy (Jill Soloway), as well as for outstanding production design.  “The Man in the High Castle” won for both cinematography and main title design, while “Mozart in the Jungle” won its sole Emmy for sound mixing.

To watch these shows, you need to be an Amazon Prime member. You can get a yearly subscription for $99 (after a 30-day free trial), or you could buy a Prime Video membership for $8.99 per month.
