Last Year’s Winner: “The Queen’s Gambit”
Still Eligible: No.
Hot Streak: For the most part, only the anthology side of the category could have a streak. “American Crime Story” has already won the category twice, so should “Impeachment” win, it would make “American Crime Story” the first anthology since “Prime Suspect” to win the category three times. Other possible streaks are at the network level. Netflix could win a second year in a row with a title like “Maid.” Meanwhile, while it hasn’t all been consecutive, a win for HBO with a title like “The White Lotus” would mean the network spent a decade dominating the Outstanding Limited Or Anthology Series category, winning seven out of ten years.
Notable Ineligible Series: “Loki” (submitted as a Drama Series); “Black Bird” (the season will not air in time to be eligible); “The White House Plumbers” (the season will not air in time to be eligible); “Love and Death” (the season will not air in time to be eligible)
This article will be updated throughout the season, along with all our predictions, so make sure to keep checking IndieWire for the latest news from the 2022 Emmys race. The nomination round of voting took place from June 16 to June 27, with the official Emmy nominations announced on Tuesday, July 12. The Creative Arts Emmy Awards will be given out over two consecutive nights on Saturday, September 3 and Sunday, September 4, with an edited presentation on the ceremonies to be broadcast on Saturday, Sept. 10, at 8:00 p.m. ET on FXX. Finally, the 74rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will take place on Monday, September 12, and air live on NBC at 8:00 p.m. ET/ 5:00 p.m. PT.
The State of the Race
As Emmy nominations rolled out in mid-July, it became clear on the Limited Series front that there were two winners: the streaming network Hulu, and the limited-turned-anthology series “The White Lotus.” In fact, together they make up the entire Supporting Actor and Actress categories for Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.
It’s now been over a year since the HBO series helmed by writer-director Mike White became the surprise hit of the summer, so for it be able to maintain the level of momentum that nets five nominations in the aforementioned Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie alone is both impressive and telling. Especially when it’s already been written in stone which one of the actresses will win. It feels like Jennifer Coolidge’s co-stars were gifted a consolation prize in the form of an Emmy nomination just because voters liked the overall show so much.
Even the accusations of category fraud hold no weight because they have accepted anthology series like “American Horror Story” having returning characters from past seasons before, and the category includes anthology series anyway, so “The White Lotus” should be in the clear. Part of its appeal is how it blends comedy, drama, and even some thrills into a very bingeable six hours, making it an easy watch for any voters that have held out on watching it this long.
“Dopesick” has also been out for nearly a year, but is a much more difficult watch. That does not mean it isn’t rewarding, it is just accurate to say that there are people who will have difficulty getting through its honest depiction of drug addiction, and even more frank look at how little the government has done to quell the problem, and hold manufacturers like Purdue Pharma responsible for exacerbating it. “Dopesick” definitely feels like the most distinguished choice to win Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series, but it does not seem like that was the vibe of what grabbed people’s attention this year.
Look at the last three nominees “The Dropout,” “Pam & Tommy,” and “Inventing Anna.” All three aspired to be provocative looks at recent crimes involving charismatic women, with a balance of comedy and tragedy. If this category were just between the three shows, the victory would hinge entirely on what Lead Actress performance Emmy voters preferred best. Nominees Amanda Seyfried, Lily James, and Julia Garner are all great bets on who will win that category this year, but again, seeing just how little love these shows that came towards the end of eligibility received elsewhere, the overall Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series category is very likely a two-horse race.
- “The White Lotus” (HBO)
- “Dopesick” (Hulu)
- “The Dropout” (Hulu)
- “Pam & Tommy” (Hulu)
- “Inventing Anna” (Netflix)
Will Win: “The White Lotus”
Could Win: “Dopesick”
Should Win: “The White Lotus”

Taylor Swift’s rep responds to reports the singer has the worst private jet carbon emissions
A spokesperson for Taylor Swift has responded to a report that named the singer as the celebrity with the worst private jet CO2 emissions.
Yesterday, a report released by Yard claimed the American singer was the biggest CO2 polluter of the year so far, having flown in her private jet 170 times since January and totalling 8,294.54 tonnes of CO2.
However, Swift’s spokesperson told Buzzfeed News the statistics are inaccurate.
For context, the report claims the average person produces just seven tonnes of carbon emissions per year.
Swift’s representative said only some of the 170 flights can be attributed to the singer: “Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”
Regardless, it is clear Swift’s jet is racking up significant amounts of carbon emissions due to its inefficient use.
According to the Yard report, her average flight time is just 80 minutes, and her jet’s shortest recorded flight flew between Missouri and Nashville for just 36 minutes.
Other significant celebrity polluters include boxer and domestic violence perpetrator Floyd Mayweather, whose shortest flight was just 10 minutes long but emitted one ton of carbon; Kim Kardashian, who has emitted 609 times more carbon than the average person; and director Steven Spielberg, who took an 18-minute flight between Rotterdam and Amsterdam – a route which, when taken by train, takes only an hour.
The subject of celebrity carbon emissions has blown up ever since Kylie Jenner shared an out-of-touch photo of her and partner Travis Scott posing in front of their private jets with the caption, “you wanna take mine or yours?”
In the midst of the backlash, many began diving deeper into Jenner’s private jet use by examining the Celebrity Jets Twitter account, which records celebrity private jet trips.
Many were horrified she was regularly taking flights as short as 12 minutes and reprimanded her for “her absolute disregard for the planet”.
Many found it hypocritical that ordinary people were being asked by big companies to reduce their car trips and use paper straws when celebrities are constantly leaving huge carbon footprints with frivolous trips in their private jets.
Despite the wave of criticism, celebrities have continued to take private flights between short distances.

How to Make Sense of a Very Unpredictable Fall Movie Season
All of a sudden, the fall movie season looks very busy. This week brought two big festival announcements loaded with major films to come: First came Venice, with a lineup that includes everything from Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale” to “Bardo”; it was followed by TIFF, where Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” will premiere alongside Sam Mendes’ “Empire of Light” and Sarah Polley’s “Women Talking,” among many others. Meanwhile, Telluride continues to shroud its selections in secret, but the latest lineups help us get a sense of what to expect there as well.
In this week’s episode of Screen Talk, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson dig through both lineups to get a sense for which films could impact the coming awards season and why it’s almost certain to be an unpredictable ride. They also address the return of competitiveness between festivals that seemed to subside earlier in the pandemic, and touch on the recent changes to the Oscar submission rules in France.
Watch the full episode above or listen it below.
Screen Talk is produced by Azwan Badruzaman and available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify, and hosted by Megaphone. Browse previous installments here, subscribe here, and be sure to let us know if you’d like to hear the hosts address specific issues in upcoming editions of Screen Talk.
