    Do you think this factor will help and or hurt American Crime with both Felicity Huffman and Lili Taylor in lead and The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story with both Courtney B. Vance and Cuba Gooding Jr. in lead as well? Could this help an or hurt American Crime and or The People v. O. J. Simpson in regards to other categories on the live telecast?

    Unfortunately, American Crime is a non-factor. If it were, Lili Taylor has the bigger role, so she would get more votes than Felicity Huffman. But to answer the question, a variety of factors go into picking between performances and parts of a project with multiple nominations in a single category. With acting, it’s who gave the stronger and/or flashier performance. Many people thought CGJ was miscast. Personally, I thought he was solid throughout and earned his nomination in the second episode. But it’s Courtney B. Vance who was one (for me the) of the standouts with his incredible work. So there’s not going to be vote splitting in that category.

    Now with OJ in the other categories, that’s where it could be in trouble. I firmly believe it’ll pull of a clean sweep. It’s just a matter of what is being considered, if anything, by the voters. In directing, all of them have things going for them. Anthony Hemmingway is a veteran director who has worked on many shows. Ryan Murphy is an iconic multi-hyphenate. Oscar nominee John Singleton! Ryan seems like a logical winner, but is he well liked? He has gone to great lengths to make up for a not so great first impression, but the industry can be petty af so who knows. I would’ve been less hesitant to pick him if he submitted the Bronco chase episode or “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia”. Anthony is who I’m predicting at the moment. He’s an industry staple in a popular project. I think John’s episode is the best one here and could easily win. Don’t have a negative for him. For writing, I think it’s an easy call for “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia”. It’s the most memorable one of the three and the one that is being pushed.
