Without further ado, check out these 5 Outstanding Limited Series Emmy nominees:

1. "The Alienist"

If you're into serial killer cases or mysteries, this series is for you! This psychological thriller follows newspaper cartoonist John Moore and criminal psychologist Dr. Laszlo Kreizler as they conduct a secret investigation to identify and understand a ritualistic serial killer terrorizing the city. Set in New York City in the late 1890s, Dr. Kreizler is very unique as a doctor who studies mental pathologies and deviant behaviors of people who do not necessarily fit into society. The team of investigators work together to figure out what made this man become a serial killer.

2. "American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace"

The second season of "American Crime Story" chronicles the famous assassination of fashion designer Gianni Versace. Versace was murdered by Andrew Cunanan, who was a spree killer and who had previously met Versace at a club. Versace was killed right on the front steps of his Miami mansion, and Cunanan managed to escape from the scene. Tune in to see Gianni's famous siblings navigate the future of the fashion house while more salacious details about Versace and Cunanan are revealed.

3. "Genius: Picasso"

The "Genius" series tells the life story of some of history's greatest minds, and this Emmy nominated second season features the life of Picasso. Picasso is one of the most celebrated creative minds of the 20th century. However, his passion for art often intermingled with and translated into his personal life. Follow this season of "Genius" to learn about Picasso's life, influences, muses, marriages, affairs, and impressive body of work. When you're finished with these ten episodes, you'll have a clear picture of who this famous artist really was.

4. "Godless"

This Netflix original series didn't get much mainstream buzz, but we highly recommend giving it a shot. This series centers around notorious and murderous criminal Frank Griffin who is searching for his outlaw protege that betrayed the brotherhood. His search brings him to the unique town of La Belle, New Mexico, which happens to be almost completely inhabited by women after a mining disaster pushed out the previous residents. Start streaming "Godless" now to watch this interesting outlaw tale unfold.

5. "Patrick Melrose"

The always talented Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the name character of this limited series based on the novels by Edward St. Aubyn. Melrose enjoys a privileged childhood, however, it is also filled with intense abuse from his father while his mother stands by. This trauma affects the rest of Melrose's life as he navigates life in New York battling severe addiction and substance abuse stemming from his childhood issues. The acting and cinematic performances of this limited series make it a strong contender in this Emmy category.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
