[WATCH] Emmy predictions slugfest on Movie/Limited Series Directing: ‘All the Way’ & ‘Fargo’ battle three ‘People v. O.J. Simpson’ episodes

Who will take home Best TV Movie/Limited Series Directing at the Emmys? I got together via webcam (watch above) with two other contributing writers, David Buchanan and Riley Chow, to preview this race in advance of the Emmycast on Sept. 18. We’re torn as to who will prevail because three of the nominees are from “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”

David and I are both going with Jay Roach primarily because he has won this category twice in the past for helming telefilms. He prevailed in 2012 for “Game Change” and in 2008 for “Recount,” when he won over Tom Hooper for “John Adams, which set an Emmy record for most wins (13). As David declares, “’All the Way’ is in a similar vein as what he’s won for in the past. Its right in the wheel house of what he’s won for in the past.”

However, Riley is going with “The People v. O.J. Simpson’ creator and director Ryan Murphy. As he explains, “’O.J.’ has twice the amount of nominations and I think they’ll go for Ryan Murphy over the other two.”
