Following a number of 2016 Primetime Emmys award wins, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” took home a Golden Globe award for “Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.”
Brad Falchuk ’93, L.H.D.’14 — perhaps best known as co-creator of the award winning shows “Glee” and “American Horror Story” — is an executive producer of “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” which is the first season for the fictionalized true-crime “anthology” series. In addition to four other Golden Globes nominations, including a win for actress Sarah Paulson, the series won the 2016 Emmy for Outstanding Limited Series, as well as for eight of its 21 other nominations.
Falchuk’s series “American Horror Story: Hotel,” which follows a similar self-contained miniseries format, took home two Emmys this year, for costumes and sound editing, adding to its previous 13 Emmy Awards. The show’s first season was nominated for 17 Emmy Awards, tied with AMC’s “Mad Men” that year for the most nominations. In 2013, the second season of “American Horror Story” received 17 nominations, again more than any other show. The third season also garnered 17 nominations, while the fourth was nominated for 19.
