The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Ryan Murphy’s limited series on FX, recently won eight Emmys.

But perhaps none of that would have been possible — particularly the award for Outstanding Hairstyling For a Limited Series or Movie — without the contributions of “mane” man Robert Pickens.

At just 22 years old, Little Rock native Pickens has partnered with longtime Hollywood wigmaker Victoria Wood, who has worked on the Matrix movies and with stars like Melissa McCarthy and Samuel L. Jackson. Through their business, Wigmaker Associates, he worked on several of the Versace show’s hairpieces under Emmy-winning head hairstylist Chris Clark.

Pickens also has created wigs for other notable shows and movies, from Murphy’s FX limited series Feud: Bette and

How to Get a Callback From These Emmy-Nominated ‘American Crime Story’ CDs

Casting directors Courtney Bright and Nicole Daniels were Emmy-nominated for their work on “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” which earned nearly the entire main cast acting nominations of their own. The duo began working together under CD Ronna Kress before venturing out on their own. They resided on the film side of the industry at first, shaping the casts of projects like “The Bling Ring” and “Home Again.” But their work on “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” ushered in more projects on the television side, including the second season of the Ryan Murphy anthology series and its fellow FX program “Legion.” Now they juggle major films, must-see TV, and festival indies, choosing big-name actors for unexpected roles while helping others break through and land their first notable jobs.
