2. 'Big Little Lies,' HBO

After binge-watching the series, I told my wife either Nicole Kidman or Reese Witherspoon would win the Emmy for best actress in a limited series. Kidman won, but it easily could have been Witherspoon. They were that good in this drama about domestic abuse. And so were the supporting players, with Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern also winning Emmys.
