Unsettling visuals are a trademark of the edgy mini, which has attracted top names and Emmy noms — 17 this year, tying its take of 2012.
‘Behind the Candelabra’
The favorite with Emmy prognostica tors, the movie sports A-listers behind and in front of the camera, and has been making the rounds of film festi vals, starting with a Cannes competition berth in May.
An epic mini that grabbed big ratings — it averaged 11.4 million viewers — “The Bible” flexed its glossy produc- tion muscles and gave History another winner.
Al Pacino, Helen Mirren and David Mamet also grabbed individual noms for the movie, which focused on Spector’s trial for the fatal shooting of Lana Clarkson.
Limited series was canceled by USA but high-octane subject matter and actors created a nomination-worthy package.
‘Top of the Lake’
Limited series has won kudos at film festivals and acting noms for Elisabeth Moss and Peter Mullan, while director Jane Campion showed off her chops over seven episodes.
