‘True Detective’ Emmys history: How will ‘Night Country’ stack up?

HBO’s anthology series “True Detective” is back after five years with a new season that will compete at the 2024 Emmy Awards. This latest installment that premiered in January comes with the subtitle “True Detective: Night Country” and, while still part of the franchise, it’s the first to not have the involvement of creator Nic Pizzolato – other than his executive producer credit. It was instead developed by Issa Lopez who wrote (or co-wrote) and directed all six episodes, and stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as detectives in an Alaskan town investigating the disappearance of eight scientists. Let’s re-examine the three previous seasons of “True Detective” at the Emmys – which garnered a combined total of 22 nominations and five wins – to determine possible nominations in categories for the current season.

When it comes to Best Limited Series, the program has never been nominated for this specific category at the Emmys, having only been recognized for its first season when it surprisingly submitted in the drama categories in 2014. Its security there in what is potentially a crowded roster of five is determined on how it does in the other races and if it can maintain its buzz since its finale in February.

With the acting categories, it seems that Foster is in a good position for Best Limited/Movie Actress, having just come off of an Oscar run with “Nyad,” her fifth nomination. This would be her third Emmy bid (her fourth if “True Detective: Night Country” makes Best Limited Series) and her first for acting, having previously been nominated for producing “The Baby Dance” (1999) and directing “Orange Is The New Black” (2014). Reis and other cast members, which include Emmy nominee Fiona Shaw, Oscar nominee John Hawkes and Emmy winner Christopher Eccleston, also contend for the supporting categories.

The below-the-line categories are where the show thrives, as it has gotten multiple citations in various crafts such as cinematography, picture editing, sound mixing, makeup, main title design and music composition, all of which it has a high chance of receiving mentions in those respective categories. Furthermore, “True Detective: Night Country” has a shot in production design, hairstyling, casting and sound editing, with the possibility of a writing or directing notice if it does really well – particularly the latter as Lopez will contend for the entirety of the season per Emmy rules.

As it currently stands in the combined Gold Derby odds, “True Detective: Night Country” is in fourth place (behind “Fargo,” “Lessons in Chemistry” and “Shōgun” in descending order) to win the Best Limited Series category with 11/2 odds and 1,269 users predicting it will make the lineup for the first time. It will likely be supported by the technical branches as some of those aspects may be hard to ignore, but whether it can get multiple above-the-line noms is something to watch out for and it will be interesting to see how it performs as their awards run is just getting started.
