The name "Fargo" obviously brings good fortune.
The quirky 1996 Coen brothers movie was nominated for best picture and picked up two Oscars for actress Frances McDormand and writing.
Now FX's acclaimed 10-part miniseries "Fargo" — which has no direct association with the film other than the title — has become a leading Emmy contender, landing 18 nominations including movie or miniseries, actor, supporting actor and actress and writing. "Fargo" also set an FX record, scoring the most nominations of any series in network history.
"It's very humbling," said Noah Hawley, creator and executive producer of "Fargo."
