Guild awards scorecard: ‘American Horror Story’ leads among anthologies and limited series

Twenty-four limited series amassed guild and society nominations in 25 categories this year, often competing with telefilms. Exactly half of the seventy nominations for limited series went to anthologies. Of these, “American Horror Story” leads with 14 nominations from nine guilds (of these, seven guilds nominated the latest edition, “Hotel,” while the casting directors cited “Freak Show” and the sound editors considered both).

While the Emmys revised their rules and renamed the Best Miniseries category as Best Limited Series to reflect inclusion of both miniseries and anthology series, not all of the guilds followed suit. “True Detective” is nominated at some guilds as a drama, others as a miniseries and MPSE actually nominated it as both. MPSE was particularly loose with its categorizations, as it also nominated the stand-alone miniseries “The Slap” as a drama and another self-contained program, “The Book of Negroes” in both the drama and miniseries categories.

Note: Unlike the Emmys, most of the guilds use the calendar year for eligibility; only the producers and casting directors follow the Emmys’ lead and use June to May. Miniseries that contended at the last Emmys are italicized.
