Michael Stuhlbarg is in literally everything. Not complaining, but still.February 25, 2018 at 9:55 am #1202500572This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 25, 2018 at 10:10 am #1202500578
Limited Series is American Crime Story (by default), Patrick Melrose (just because nobody has seen it, so it could still be amazing) or Godless (similar reviews as this, but Netflix is a better bet than Hulu).February 25, 2018 at 10:22 am #1202500579This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 25, 2018 at 10:48 am #1202500593
Every Hulu program has gone almost totally unrecognized, except for the one with complete critical support. Netflix actually has a history of making players out of shows with this level of acclaim and this would be the year for a contender of that sort not to be runner-up.
Genius is another that could win, as it is already in that runner-up position and this season could be amazing. Although I do not think that it can really win, I think that The Sinner is definitely getting nominated and that is five, so I do not expect The Looming Tower to be nominated at this time.February 25, 2018 at 12:12 pm #1202500627
American Crime Story could be a default winner because of lack of competition. I agree with @hunter-ish that The Looming Tower has the potential to be a big player in the limited series categories. Hulu is already in the game, they’ll probably go bigger this year with campaigning. The thing is, I don’t have a lot of faith in The Sinner, Godless and Genius. I didn’t like The Sinner, but Jessica Biel would be a justified nominee in the deserted limited series categories. I don’t think Godless has buzz, but it probably has better chance, maybe even for writing and directing. NatGeo could surprise again like last year, but from what I’ve seen in the trailer, Banderas looks not so good.February 25, 2018 at 2:22 pm #1202500663
What about the Tupac and Biggie show? Or Trust?
Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, SurvivorFebruary 25, 2018 at 2:45 pm #1202500670
Metacritic scores the first three reviews for the former as 75, 62 and 60. FX keeps calling the latter a drama and classifying it as such. The first three episodes are still embargoed, but if Trust does move over to the limited categories, I will predict Donald Sutherland, but not the show itself or supporting actress Hilary Swank.March 3, 2018 at 3:50 am #1202504595
The first three episodes are stellar. The entire ensemble is fantastic, but Jeff Daniels is in full FYC mode in every scene. WHEW.

I mean, he’s yelled a few times, but hardly anything Emmy worthy.
I think Bill Camp’s performance in episode 3 was good though.
Even though it’s a true story it feels very derivative of Homeland, and it’s good but nothing special. I personally don’t consider anything I’ve seen Emmy worthy thus far. We’ll see how it develops.
