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.

Danny Strong, Dopesick (The People vs. Purdue Pharma)
Elizabeth Meriwether, The Dropout (I’m in a Hurry)
Sarah Burgess, Impeachment: American Crime Story (Man Handled)
Molly Smith Metzler, Maid (Snaps)
Patrick Somerville, Station Eleven (Unbroken Circle)
Mike White, The White Lotus

Strong won for writing and producing “Game Change” in 2012 and was nominated for writing “Recount” in 2008. Individual episodes have won this prize a number of times in the past. Only half these shows are up for the top prize - “Dopesick,” “The Dropout,” and “The White Lotus”.

What should win: “The White Lotus” gets my vote.
What will win: Like the directing race, this should be between The White Lotus and “Dopesick,” and I think the former will prevail.
