PGA Awards predictions: Best Limited Series will be a cakewalk for ‘Versace’

The team behind “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” better clear more room on their shelves because the show is our predicted Best Limited Series champ at Saturday’s Producers Guild of America Awards.

“Versace,” which has a commanding 16/5 odds, has swept the limited series/TV movie prizes so far, claiming the Emmy, Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award. A victory would also make the “American Crime Story” anthology series the second program with multiple wins in the category, following its FX brethren “Fargo” (2015-16); “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” similarly dominated the season two years ago.

In second place is HBO’s “Sharp Objects.” The premium cable network missed out on what would’ve been a gimme win in this category last year when it renewed “Big Little Lies”

Off her Emmy-nominated portrayal of Marilyn Miglin in The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Judith Light has taken on the role of Matron Grady, a woman who had a tortured childhood and therefore makes Nellie Bly’s life a living hell in Escaping the Madhouse: the Nellie Bly Story.

The Lifetime movie, set to air on Saturday, January 19, tells the story of Bly, played by Christina Ricci (Z: The Beginning of Everything), the brave journalist, who committed herself to the Women’s Lunatic Asylum on Blackwell’s Island in her successful quest to expose mistreatment of mentally ill patients.

‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’ Is Now on Netflix

Where to Stream:

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story

  • Netflix

  • Amazon
  • More Options

Netflix has just landed one of the most critically praised dramas of last year. The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Ryan Murphy’s ode to the notorious fashion designer who was murdered far too soon, is now streaming.

Despite the pedigree of the anthology series’ first installment, The People vs. O.J. Simpson, it wouldn’t have been surprising if The Assassination of Gianni Versace turned into a well-dressed soap, particularly since Andrew Cunanan’s (Darren Criss) transformation from a compulsive teenage liar into the monster who would go on to murder five innocent men was played off as pulpy drama when the investigation was happening in the 1990s. It would have been simple for FX’s adaptation to mirror real life’s

Much like the hosts of the Golden Globes, he talked up the broader inclusion in Hollywood throughout 2018 and the diversity among those nominated.

Critics’ Choice Awards 2019: All the winners and losers from inside the ceremony

Lady Gaga was overcome with emotion as she took to the stage for the second time on Sunday to accept her second Critics’ Choice Award.

The singer and actress, 32, tied with Glenn Close, 71,  to take home the best actress award for A Star Is Born at the event, which was held at the historical Barkers Hangar in Santa Monica, Calfornia.

‘My mother and Glenn are good friends – I’m so very happy you won this evening,’ Gaga began. ‘I

What Corey Stoll and Billy Magnussen Bring to the ‘Sopranos’ Prequel

Fans of The Sopranos will soon have more than repeat viewings of the classic series on HBO to work with. According to multiple reports, the feature-film prequel The Many Saints of Newark will begin shooting in April of this year. Sopranos creator David Chase wrote the script and will produce, while Alan Taylor (a veteran of the HBO show) will direct.

With production set to begin within months, Chase and Taylor have been hard at work assembling a cast to follow in the footsteps of James Gandolfini, Edie Falco, and Michael Imperioli. And they’ve made significant progress. Since late 2018, we’ve heard of the additions of Alessandro Nivola, Vera Farmiga, and Jon Herndon.

Since the film takes place in the late 1960s, Sopranos will be watching an entirely new roster of stars. That list just grew to include two more well-known faces from film and TV. According to Variety, Corey Stoll
