You're probably scrambling to get through the last few episodes of your pre-2019 Emmys binge so you're caught up on all the shows nominated this year, but what if you just... stop and watch Netflix instead?

There's no law that says you have to have watched every show that received an Emmy nomination this year, and if it's too daunting of a task to undertake with only a few weeks to go before the big ceremony on Sunday, Sept. 22, there's no harm in giving up. Especially if you give up to watch some already come-and-gone Emmy shows on the streaming service.

Netflix is home to dozens of different series that have taken home Emmys over the years, whether they be Netflix originals or OG broadcast series. And Netflix has a ton of the latter series, from ones that swept all the major categories over the years to a few that are still up-and-coming with their accolades.

Take a break from your regular binge, and keep reading to check out some other decorated series.

1. The West Wing

<p><em>The West Wing</em> </p>

The West Wing

Emmys won: Outstanding Drama Series (x4); Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (x3); Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series; Richard Schiff, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series; Allison Janney, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (x2); Allison Janney, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (x2); Bradley Whitford, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series; John Spencer, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series; Stockard Channing, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series; Alan Alda, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series; Outstanding Art Direction for a Single-Camera Series; Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series (x2); Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (x2); Outstanding Main Title Theme Music; Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series; Outstanding Single-Camera Sound Mixing for a Series; Outstanding Multi-Camera Sound Mixing for a Series or Special

Why you should watch: The West Wing could also be called the C.J. Cregg show considering that Janney took home multiple Emmys in both the Supporting Actress and Lead Actress categories over the show's seven seasons. But the jackal aside, the show was a landmark series for what a behind-the-scenes look at the White House could be, and with Aaron Sorkin's witty walk-and-talk dialogue, it's now a cultural touchstone.

2. The Crown

Claire Foy, The Crown

Emmys won: Claire Foy, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series; John Lithgow, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series; Outstanding Costumes for a Period/Fantasy Series, Limited Series, or Movie; Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series; Outstanding Period Costumes; Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series; Outstanding Cinematograph for a Single-Camera Series (One Hour); Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Period Program (One Hour or More)

Why you should watch: The look and feel of The Crown is phenomenal, so it's no wonder it keeps being honored in the technical departments, especially for its costume design. On top of that, Foy is a knockout as young Queen Elizabeth trying to deal with her newfound power while her personal life crumbles around her.

3. Orange Is the New Black

Emmys won: Uzo Aduba, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series; Uzo Aduba, Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series; Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series; Outstanding Single-Picture Editing for a Comedy Series.

Why you should watch: As one of the first Netflix originals to really breakthrough, Orange Is the New Black will have a lasting legacy no matter how many Emmys it's snagged over the years. It also managed to shake up the Academy behind the scenes, going from being classified as a comedy series to being classified as a drama. It was a whole thing.

4. Black Mirror

Why you should watch: Black Mirror is a series that doesn't require you to binge every episode just to get to the good stuff. We're here to talk about two episodes that have taken home the top prize: "San Junipero," about star-crossed lovers, and "USS Callister," about a computer programmer gone mad. They're quickly going to become regular and repeat viewings for you.

5. Breaking Bad

"Ozymandias," the third to last episode of the series, is also one of the most celebrated.

Why you should watch: If a limited series could sweep the Emmys, The People vs. O.J. Simpson did just that. It took home the top awards in nearly every acting category. It also completely gripped viewers replaying the notorious real-life courtroom drama, complete with an Emmy for Marcia Clarke's hair.

7. Master of None

<p>Aziz Ansari, <em>Master of None</em> </p>

Aziz Ansari, Master of None

Emmys won: Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series (x2); Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series

Why you should watch: With only two seasons under its belt, Netflix's Master of None has snagged two Emmys for Outstanding Writing. Its second win, for Aziz Ansari and Lena Waithe, was groundbreaking, with Waithe becoming the first black woman to snag the award.

8. Sherlock

<p>Benedict Cumberbatch, <em>Sherlock</em> </p>

Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock

Emmys won: "His Last Vow," Benedict Cumberbatch, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie, Martin Freeman, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie, Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special, Outstanding Cinematography for a Miniseries or Movie, Outstanding Music Composition for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special, Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Miniseries or Movie, and Outstanding Sound Editing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special; "The Abominable Bride," Outstanding Television Movie and Outstanding Special Visual Effects in a Supporting Role

Why you should watch: Way back when, before Cumberbatch and Freeman were major stars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they were just Holmes and Watson trying to solve crimes in present day. Sherlock is unlike any other Sherlock Holmes series you've ever seen, and it may or may not return in the future (no one knows!).

9. House of Cards

<p><em>House of Cards</em> </p>

House of Cards

Emmys won: Reg E. Cathey, Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series; Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series; Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score) (x2); Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (One Hour); Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series; Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series

Why you should watch: While House of Cards has been nominated dozens of times, it's yet to snag the major awards for Outstanding Series, Actor, or Actress. But, that doesn't diminish the show whatsoever as it's still one of Netflix's first and finest prestige dramas.

10. Shameless

<em>Shameless</em>Shameless

Emmys won: Joan Cusack, Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series; Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Comedy Series or a Variety Program (x2)

Why you should watch: It might not have the most Emmys out there, but Shameless is still a beloved series (and it's a Showtime series you can watch on Netflix, and that's important). There's also something to be said about the fact that it's winning Emmys for stunt coordination, because you don't expect that from a William H. Macy-led series.

11. Ask the StoryBots

<em>Ask the Storybots</em>Ask the Storybots

Emmys won: Outstanding Interactive Media - Enhancement to a Daytime Program or Series; Outstanding Directing in a Preschool Animated Program; Outstanding Special Class Animated Program; Outstanding Writing for a Preschool Animated Program.

Why you should watch: You know, Daytime Emmys are technically still Emmys, and Netflix's Ask the StoryBotsis something the whole family can watch together. The series also boasts an impressive list of famous guest stars, like John Legend, Jennifer Garner, Edward Norton, Snoop Dogg, and even Ed Asner, who played Santa Claus in one episode. You're definitely sleeping on StoryBots.
