True crimes, scams and scandals dominate the headlines in the Emmy race for outstanding limited or anthology series. But which competitor deserves to win the trophy?
Four of this year’s five nominees are based on true events, but this is the only fully fictionalized entry – HBO’s comedy-drama. The White Lotus — who leads the pack with 20 total nominations, including eight in the acting categories. (It technically counts as an anthology series, since it returns for a season 2 with a new cast.)
Hulu also had a great year, with three of its limited series making the cut. Dopea scathing look at the nation’s opioid epidemic with Michael Keaton and Kaitlyn Dever, garnered 14 nominations overall, with Pam and Tommy, centering on the infamous Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee sex tape, racking up 10 nods in all. More, The stallstarring Amanda Seyfried as convicted tech fraudster Elizabeth Holmes, garnered six nominations in total.
Completing the field with three total nods is Netflix’s Invent Anna, starring Emmy winner Julia Garner as Anna Delvey, a high-society con artist. (But don’t count on Netflix: The Queen’s Bet won this award for the streamer last year.)
