‘American Crime Story’ Wins Big at Emmys 2016

americancrimestory-emmys American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson was a hit at this year’s Emmy Awards. The first season of the Ryan Murphy true crime anthology series took home 9 Emmys overall.

The FX series was a huge hit when it debuted earlier this year which ended up translating in Emmy votes because the show won the title of Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special, along with 3 of its actors- Courtney B. Vance, Sterling K. Brown and Sarah Paulson-winning individual Emmys for their performances.

During Vance’s speech, the actor shouted out his wife (and fellow Ryan Murphy ensemble member) Angela Bassett, proclaiming “To the woman who rocks my chain. Angela Evelyn Bassett, this one is for you girl!”.
