The drama broke numerous ratings record during its opening season run and was recently named a Top 10 Television Program of the Year by the American Film Institute.

Moreover, Empire was the only broadcast series to earn a Golden Globe Award nomination in 2015 in the category of Best Television Series – Drama.
