When all was said and done, 21st Century Fox walked away from the 68th Emmy Awards with 27 awards across its businesses. FX Networks took home 18 Emmys on its own, setting a new record for basic cable, thanks in large part to “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”

FX Networks heads into Sunday’s 68th Emmy Awards show with 12 Creative Arts Emmys already under its belt and a total of 56 nominations, the most in its history and the most ever for an ad-supported cable network. That level of achievement doesn’t happen overnight. At FX, not many people know this better than Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, presidents of original programming.
