The Outstanding Limited Series category represents non-traditional TV shows. In order to qualify, a series must have two or more episodes and have a total running time of at least 150 minutes.
The category originally made its debut in 1973, but it was called Outstanding Drama/Comedy, Limited Episodes. After undergoing a few name changes—like Outstanding Miniseries, Outstanding TV Movie and Outstanding Drama/Comedy Special—the title was officially changed to Outstanding Limited Series in 2015.
Previous winners include The Queen's Gambit, Watchmen, Chernobyl, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Big Little Lies (season one), The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Olive Kitteridge and Fargo (season one).
Talk about a well-deserved honor.
