“The People v. O.J. Simpson” has the best odds for these top six categories:
Best Limited Series;
Best Movie/Mini Actor (Courtney B. Vance);
Best Movie/Mini Actress (Sarah Paulson);
Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor (Sterling K. Brown);
Best Movie/Mini Directing (for the episode “From the Ashes of Tragedy); and
Best Movie/Mini Writing (for the episode “From the Ashes of Tragedy).
“Olive Kitteridge” won all these races last year. Will this first installment of the anthology “American Crime Story” do the same?August 16, 2016 at 7:08 am #1201908401
I suspect it loses in Lead Actor and Writing.

Predicting vote splits to happen in Writing, Directing, and Supporting Actor. Paulson and Limited Series seem safe. Have no idea on whether Vance or Cranston will win thoughAugust 16, 2016 at 8:03 pm #1201908913

Cranston will win. I don’t believe for a second the Emmys will snub Walter White as LBJ. Remember when we all underestimated Cranston for Full Measure? I actually predicted him to lose for Ozymendias to McConaughey for True Detective. I will never underestimate the Emmys love for Cranston again. The fact he, along with Vance made TCA and it’s a popular ballot this time should make Cranston one of the night’s biggest locks.
I think people are only acting like TV Movie/Mini Lead Actor is a close race because with Vance we have the winner we want to happen and with Cranston we have the winner that will most likely happen. It’s all a matter of not letting your heart influence your head. It’s tough, I know, but it’s doable.August 16, 2016 at 8:07 pm #1201908917
Am I the only one who thinks Anthony Hemingway can upset? He directed the most episodes of “The People v. O.J.”, 5 of them. That’s half the entire series. He’s a TV veteran, could it happen?August 17, 2016 at 6:57 am #1201909133
Vance is also hurt, I think, by Gooding’s presence, who’ll siphon off some votes from American Crime Story fans.

Will win: Limited Series, Actress, Writing
Might win: Supporting Actor
Won’t win: Lead Actor, DirectingAugust 17, 2016 at 8:48 am #1201909194
I doubt that Gooding steals enough votes to make a difference.

Although Ryan Murphy has one Emmy for directing (Glee) and was favoured for another (The Normal Heart), he has never won a DGA Award, so he has actually fared better with tapes than in popularity votes.August 17, 2016 at 1:57 pm #1201909350
Yes, The People V. O.J. Simpson will sweep like Olive Kitteridge. It deserves to.
