The Primetime Emmy Awards, better known as the Emmys, is given out by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS). They are divided into three classes – Primetime Emmy Awards, the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards (honors artisan achievements) and the Primetime Engineering Emmy Awards (recognizes significant engineering and technological contributions). The typical eligibility period is between June 1 and May 31 of any given year. The Television Academy comprises over 25,000 members, representing 30 professional peer groups, including performers, directors, producers, art directors and various artisans and executives. Since 1949, the awards recognize excellence in American primetime television programming.

The streamer also has Steve McQueen's "Small Axe," which will be competitive in various categories, particularly supporting actor and actress. Netflix's "The Queen's Gambit" has run the gauntlet at the Golden Globes, SAG and guilds thus far, but it hasn't competed against all the late breakers that are about to surge. The entire cast of all five films is being submitted. Most notably, Barry Jenkins' "The Underground Railroad" could very well be his masterpiece, which is a high mark considering he helmed the best picture winning "Moonlight" and criminally overlooked "If Beale Street Could Talk." Creating a star out of Thuso Mbedu, the adaptation of Colson Whitehead's acclaimed novel has all the goods to be an Emmy sweeper, especially from the power of Amazon Prime behind it.
AWARDS CATEGORY HISTORY (Best Limited or Anthology Series)
The eligibility calendar and dates of awards will determine how long each phase lasts and is subject to change. Variety's Awards Circuit Prediction schedule consists of four phases, running all year long: Draft, Pre-Season, Regular Season and Post Season. Following history, buzz, news, reviews and sources, the Emmy predictions are updated regularly with the current year's list of contenders in all categories. Variety's Awards Circuit is home to the official predictions for the upcoming Emmys ceremonies from film awards editor Clayton Davis.

With the Winslet vehicle, as the finale drops, there's going to be a lot of goodwill in its favor heading into June. Davies. Will they be able to juggle it all?

But when it comes to limited series, where there is an overabundance of talent and quality, only five will make the cut, which will inevitably upset many, depending on which series gets snubbed. It's both hilarious and frustrating that there are eight available slots in the drama and comedy categories for the Emmys this year, with a "less than" amount of contenders.

"Small Axe" (Amazon Prime Video)

The former also has the most nominations for a continuing series with five, while "American Horror Story" is close behind with four. "Prime Suspect" has the most wins in this category with three, while "American Crime Story" is right behind with two. This category has continually undergone rule changes and inceptions over the years, making it misleading to account for significant historical wins and nominations.
There are many records held for both wins and nominations in the near eight decades. The Primetime Emmy Awards, better known simply as the Emmys, is television's most prestigious artistic award.
