Jmunney’s 2022 Emmy Wish List, Part 3: Limited Series

Fun (or Frightening?) Fact: this year’s Emmy ballot includes nearly 3000 performers. We’ve all known for several years now just how overwhelming television has become, but somehow it still had room to launch into another level. So for my personal wish list, I decided not to think about it too hard. I’ll just include however many or however few selections per category I’d like to. I’ve probably forgotten some worthy contenders, but I won’t stress about it too much. We’ll find out what the TV Academy thinks when the nominations are announced on July 12!

Some years, I watch a lot of limited series. Other years, not so much. This ended up being one of the lean seasons. From what I did watch, overall I appreciated the performances more than the shows.

You might notice that I have Pam & Tommy in parentheses, and that’s because while I did mostly enjoy it, I also felt torn about the whole enterprise, as it was produced against the wishes of the real Pamela Anderson. At least Lily James did her justice. Speaking of justice, more people need to pay attention to the under-the-radar Miracle Workers and its always-up-for-anything lead star.

KEY:
Bold=My winner
*=I have placed this nominee in a different category than the Emmy ballot.
**=Not on the Emmy ballot

Limited or Anthology Series
The Dropout
Miracle Workers: Oregon Trail
(Pam & Tommy)
