Emmy Nomination Predictions in Limited Series & Movies: Superheroes and Feminists Battle for Votes


Top contenders in the categories include ”Watchmen,“ ”Mrs. America,“ ”Unbelievable,“ ”Hollywood“ and ”El Camino“

The Emmys’ limited series and television movie categories are, in many ways, the most refreshing ones — because while voters can pick the same programs again and again in most categories, they’re forced to deal with a completely new batch of miniseries and TV movies every year.

The 2020 crop includes three limited series that rewrite history — “Watchmen,” “The Plot Against America” and “Hollywood” — and ranges from the enormous scope of those shows to the small personal story in “Normal People.” On the TV movie side, meanwhile, voters who liked “Breaking Bad,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Transparent” will have the opportunity to salute their final episodes, which were created and submitted as standalone movies.
