“Small Ax” was a hit with TV and movie critics when it premiered last fall on Amazon Prime Video. It won the Los Angeles Film Critics Association’s Best Picture Award and was nominated for Best Limited Series at the Critics’ Choice and Golden Globe Awards. But how many Emmy nominations will he get? This is to be considered 18 times in Emmy ballots. Scroll down to see the full list.
Directed and co-written by Oscar winner Steve mcqueen (“12 Years a Slave”), “Small Ax” is an anthology of five independent films that explore the experience of West Indian immigrants to the UK from the 1960s to the 1980s. “Mangrove” tells the true story of a group of black protesters who have been persecuted by the police and the judiciary. “Lovers Rock” is a fictional story that takes place during a lively house party. “Red, White and Blue” is a biographical drama about a rookie cop who fights against racism in the police force. “Alex Wheatle” is about the activist-turned-author who was involved in the Brixton uprising in 1981. And “Education” explores a corrupt and racist policy of segregation in schools.
The entire anthology is subject to Emmy review as a whole in the Directing and Casting categories, as well as Outstanding Limited Series. But in the races where individual episodes have been submitted, the most represented by far are “Mangrove” and “Lovers Rock”. “Mangrove” is envisioned for writing, cinematography, hairstyling, image editing and production design, as well as actors Shaun Parkes and Letitia wright (but not recent BAFTA winner Malachi Kirby). “Lovers Rock” is in the running for costumes, music supervision, sound editing and mixing, in addition to potential acting offers for Michel district and Amarah-Jae St. Aubyn.
“Red, White and Blue” has two chances of recognition. He is in the running for his writing and for the interpretation of John boyega, which has already won the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Awards.
