    eastwest’s question makes me think of one-and-done 24: Legacy.  24 starring Kiefer Sutherland competed ten times with three titles across three program categories from 2002 to 2015 (drama series, movie, limited series) and it was not always acclaimed.  Even shows that are acclaimed inevitably fall off, yet there were certain below-the-line branches that always respected its technical prowess.  It got thirteen nominations for editing, ten for score, nine for both sound editing and mixing and seven for stunts.  Legacy was obviously not as well-received, but I figured that the craft of it would still win out in a couple of these, then it received no Emmy or guild nominations.  It is like Tom says about people wanting to be on the winning team.

    Not a one-and-done, but the second season of The Hour won writing.

    It did receive great notices initially, but critics only had the first four episodes, i.e. just one shy of the series-upending twist. Had they received all seven for review, I expect the Metacritic score would be lower and we wouldn’t have had it as such a strong contender in our Emmy predictions out of the gate. Case in point: Vulture originally had Run in its list of top series of the year, but appended this disclaimer when they updated their picks:

    I’m dead at them feeling the need to clarify. They really were like we don’t advocate for that mess!

    An earlier version of this article included an entry for HBO’s Run, which was based on the first half of the season provided for critics. After watching the rest of the season, in particular the finale, we have opted to remove it from this list.

    Yes.

    If you really want to watch it just watch the first 3 to 5 episodes and just give up. Or just don’t bother.

    Wever was great though (as always).

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    No. The finale is fine. The full season can be binged quickly. Wever is fantastic throughout.
