“The acting races haven been very hotly contested the last couple of years. This year it seems like we know what’s going to happen but there are a lot of possible upsets,” declares contributing writer Amanda Spears during our 2018 Emmy nomination slugfest focusing on the Best Limited Series/TV Movie acting races. She is joined by fellow contributors Riley Chow and Zach Laws to discuss the possible nominees and who to watch out for (watch the video above).
“Benedict Cumberbatch (‘Patrick Melrose’) gives an Emmy bait performance. But Darren Criss (‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’) is ahead because he got the TCA nomination,” predicts Chow for Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor.
When it comes to the race for Best Limited Series/TV Move Actress Laws says, “As soon as ‘The Tale’ came on I switched to Laura Dern. The combination of her winning last year and possibly being a double nominee, this is a done deal.”
As for Best Limited Series/TV Movie Supporting Actress Spears poses the question, “Can Angela Lansbury win if she’s ‘Little Women’s’ only nomination?” Chow wonders, “Is Dern ineligible for the win (for ‘Twin Peaks’) since she all but guaranteed lead actress?”
As the conversation turns to Best Limited Series/TV Movie Supporting Actor Laws makes the point, “If they’re watching ‘Versace’ Cody Fern could get nominated.” What do YOU think, Derbyites?
