It’s entirely possible that American Horror Story gets left out this time around. This category is really tough, and Emmy voters are likely to be swayed more toward prestige projects like Show Me A Hero and The Night Manager. I think American Crime, Sherlock, and AHS are all fighting for the last spot. It’ll be hard for any other series to register and get in the top six. One of those three is definitely going to have to sit this cycle out, the bigger question is which one?
WILL BE NOMINATED: The People VS OJ Simpson, Fargo, Roots
WILD CARDS: The Night Manager, American Crime, Show Me A Hero, Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, American Horror Story
DARK HORSES: Flesh and Bone, Saints and Strangers, War and Peace, 11.22.63
