“There’s a lot of excitement here,” Rob Licuria declares about the Best Limited Series category, adding that the category is “not a done deal.” Licuria recently teamed up with Riley Chow and Amanda Spears in a series of slugfests this week about the three series races at the Emmys in the wake of the Creative Arts Emmys last weekend. Watch their lively discussion above.
“It’ll be really interesting if they really spread the wealth or if it will be like the last couple of years where they just doubled down on the one thing that they like,” Chow says. Spears agrees, noting that, “I think there’ll be a sporadic spreading of the wealth as [‘Versace’] probably won’t see the ‘OJ’ sweep like they did last time.”
“I’m intrigued by a scenario,” adds Chow, “where we see Benedict Cumberbatch win for ‘Patrick Melrose’ and Laura Dern in for ‘The Tale,’ Brandon Victor Dixon wins for ‘Jesus Christ Superstar,’ either ‘Twin Peaks’ or ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ wins directing, ‘Black Mirror’ takes writing and then when we get to the limited series category and whether it’s ‘Godless’ or ‘American Crime Story,’ it’s kind of a hollow victory.”
