    If both aired this season, what would win the Best Limited Series battle between HBO’s “Olive Kitteridge” and FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson”? Hmm …

    I’m hoping the voters will have the taste to award Fargo this year anyway. 🙂

    Olive Kitteridge was not even nominated for PGA, so something was a bit off, even if it had no effect at the Emmys against the competition that it had, so I say American Crime Story pending its nominations. Olive Kitteridge was HBO though.

    Yeah, I suspect so. I definitely think McDormand would’ve defeated Paulson, though Brown would probably beat Murray.

    Ooooh interesting. I’d say no, though McDormand > Paulson (sorry), writing and directing over individual episodes of “ACS,” and I’d guess Murray still wins with name recognition over Brown (sad). Is Cranston around in this hyphethetical scenario? I could see him beat Vance and Jenkins fairly easily in lead actor. No acting wins for “ACS” seems weird, but all news outlets would really report is the Limited Series win. “OK” is much more in voters’ wheelhouses, but OJ mania is real right now. Maybe “ACS” wins more techs to compensate?

    Not quite sure People v. OJ Simpson is a slamdunk this year considering Fargo is a huge threat.

    OJ would for sure win. More people were raving about OJ and Olive and as much as I liked McDormand in Kitteridge, beating Paulson would have been a crime.

    Not sure about Limited Series, I think Paulson would have defeated McDormand, Murray would have probably defeated Plemmons and SKB, and I think Fargo would have won writing, and it would still be a toss up between Fargo and OJ for Directing

    Oh I hope OK would have still won. I just finished the first 2 episodes of American Crime Story and NO! Just NO! I don’t consider it bad, I just don’t consider it good. Some of the acting is bad though. Travolta and Gooding are that bad. Paulson and Vance haven’t had much to do yet. But the premiere didn’t have a good consistent tone. It shifted between straight drama and over the top. At times it seemed like it wanted to go for satire but didn’t.

    I think McDormand would have still won over Paulson because she was the life of Olive Kitteridge. Nothing against Paulson, but I would have only awarded her the Emmy for Asylum over Burstyn.

    The first two episodes of OJ gives you zero idea about the increase in quality and story telling once the formalities of how the story unfolded are out the way. OK is the Frances McDormand make her a triple crowner project. Paulson as Clark is light years ahead of Oscar winning resting bitch face.
