2022 EMMY PREDICTIONS:
OUTSTANDING WRITING FOR A LIMITED SERIES OR TV MOVIE
PRICE PREDICTION COMMENT:
Mike White’s accomplishments are felt throughout HBO’s anthology series “The White Lotus.” With its biting and intricate mosaic of characters, it hits on nearly every level.
Danny Strong is a beloved writer and ends his addiction series “Dopesick” on the most poignant note.
Elizabeth Meriwether is beloved in the industry, as evidenced by her name for “The Dropout.” The series’ timely story of ambition and corruption sets its narrative pace.
Ryan Murphy’s power continues with ‘Impeachment: American Crime Story’ and multiple nominations, despite declining ratings and reviews. This surely helped Sarah Burgess land a shocking name.

Proof that the Netflix drama “MAID” was a near miss for an exceptional limited series, saw Molly Smith Metzler’s name among the scribes of this incredibly competitive race. It is also one of the few categories in which he has a chance.
There are avid admirers for “Station Eleven,” the HBO adaptation of the famous novel, exemplified by the decent number of nominations. Perhaps an upset winner waiting in the wings for Patrick Somerville?
