Hulu showed up Netflix with a historic Emmy win, but it shouldn’t get comfortable

Hulu had a right to party on Sunday night, with “The Handmaid’s Tale” raking in multiple Emmys including the coveted win for best drama series, a pair for lead and supporting actress, and one for directing.
It was a huge night for Hulu, not only because it became the first streaming service to win best drama, but also because it beat Netflix to the punch. Though Hulu recently committed $2.5 billion for its 2017 programming budget, roughly in line with what HBO spends, it still lags way behind Netflix’s $7 billion (for 2017).
