The Handmaid's Tale continues to be an awards magnet for Hulu. The show won the coveted "Outstanding Drama Series" Emmy Award tonight, following five other major triumphs throughout the ceremony. And that's on top of snapping up three Creative Arts Emmys during a smaller celebration last week. The Handmaid's Tale is Hulu's biggest series yet, and its success shows the value a streaming network can get from producing their own shows. It's no wonder Hulu is planning to spend $2.5 billion on original content this year.
