American Crime tells the story of the aftermath of a heinous crime, where a young couple is brutally attacked in their home, leaving the husband killed and the wife clinging for life.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW

American Horror Story: Freak Show has received nineteen Emmy nominations, including five wins.
Olive Kitteridge is a four-part miniseries based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name. The story follows the twenty-five year journey of the Kitteridge family alongside the small Maine town in which they reside. Led by Frances McDormand, the series examines the small issues and major problems that make up a life. Olive Kitteridge has received thirteen Emmy nominations, including two wins.
THE HONORABLE WOMAN
The Honorable Woman follows a British-Israeli woman, who in attempt to help broker peace, turns her father’s arms company into one that lays data cables between Israel and the West Bank.

Wolf Hall is an historical drama that tells the story of Thomas Cromwell, King Henry VIII, and Anne Boleyn as told through Cromwell’s perspective. Based on the novels “Wolf Hall” and the sequel, “Bring Up the Bodies,” Wolf Hall gives a behind-the-curtain look at the inner dealing of a man sworn to serve both king and country. Wolf Hall has received eight Emmy nominations.
HOLLYWIRE'S WINNER PREDICTION
Olive Kitteridge tells a complete and compelling story in just four parts, the collective performances of the entire cast are incredible, and the fact that it's an HBO miniseries are the perfect recipe for the win in this category.
The only thing Emmy voters may love more than an HBO miniseries is a PBS period-piece. The cast performances, costume design, and the general 16th century nature of the story of Wolf Hall, may be enough to make this a surprise winner.
