Emmy Nominees: Best Directing for a Limited Series or TV Movie

My predictions: 4/6

The nominees: Dopesick (The People vs. Purdue Pharma), Green Juice (The Dropout), Iron Sisters (The Dropout), MAID (Sky Blue), Wheel of Fire (Station Eleven), The White Lotus

If I was going to pick one show to earn double nominations in this category, it wouldn’t have been The Dropout, which fared fine despite picking up just one acting nomination. I really have to finish watching Dopesick and two shows that missed the top category, MAID and Station Eleven. Rounding out the category we have the tremendous overperformer The White Lotus, a brilliant if decidedly less serious show than the rest of this bunch.

What should win? I can’t judge based on what I’ve seen. What will win? I do think The White Lotus could beat “Dopesick” here.
