Emmy Predictions: Best Limited or Anthology Series

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Tuesday, July 13th. As always, chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: Little Fires Everywhere, Mrs. America, Unbelievable, Unorthodox, Watchmen

The competition: It’s worth noting that there are two shows that have been nominated every time they were previously eligible: Fargo and Genius: Aretha, though I don’t think either will be invited to the party this time. The frontrunners are surely The Queen’s Gambit and Mare of Easttown, and they’ll likely be joined by some combination of Small Axe, WandaVision, The Underground Railroad, and I May Destroy You. Don’t forget midseason awards players like The Good Lord Bird, The Undoing, and The Comey Rule, plus a few other alternatives like Halston, It’s a Sin, and Roadkill.

The predicted nominees: I May Destroy You, Mare of Easttown, The Queen’s Gambit, The Underground Railroad, WandaVision

The predicted winner: I think The Queen’s Gambit takes this in a fierce battle with “Mare of Easttown.”
