Emmy Winner Predictions: Best Writing for a Limited Series or TV Movie

Nominees are listed in alphabetical order by show. Beware of minor spoilers for listed episodes.

Michaela Coel, I May Destroy You
Brad Ingelsby, Mare of Easttown
Scott Frank, The Queen’s Gambit
Peter Cameron and Chuck Hayward, WandaVision (All-New Halloween Spooktacular!)
Jac Schaeffer, WandaVision (Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience)
Laura Dooney, WandaVision (Previously On)

Coel contends this year for acting, directing, and producing. Frank was previously nominated for writing, directing, and producing “Godless,” and competes for those same three prizes this year. Ingelsby, Hayward, and Schaeffer also have nominations for producing their projects. Only one show has before had three episodes nominated, and it won: “The People v. O.J. Simpson” in 2016.

What should win: I think I would choose “I May Destroy You,” “The Queen’s Gambit,” or a “WandaVision” installment, but I’m fine with all these.
What will win: I’m not entirely sure, but I’ll bet on Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience, the pilot installment of “WandaVision.”
