Lead and supporting performers in the miniseries-movies genre will compete in separate categories at the Primetime Emmys after all.
Return To Cranford
Made-for-TV movies and miniseries have long been TV formats on decline -- so much so that this year, the TV Academy merged the two into one category.
The Weinstein Company drama "The King's Speech" topped 68th annual Golden Globe nominations Tuesday with seven nods, including best picture (drama), actor, and director.
A conspiracy theorist might find the broadcast networks' Emmy resurgence -- with nominations for "Glee," "Modern Family" and "The Good Wife" -- extremely convenient.
Leading the pack in this year's Primetime Emmy nominations with 24 bids is "The Pacific," a vote of confidence for the type of big-scale program that is becoming increasingly rare.
Best drama series include 'Breaking Bad,' 'Dexter,' 'The Good Wife,' 'Lost,' 'Mad Men' and 'True Blood.'
Longform writers embrace opportunities to stretch out and let their characters 'go down blind alleys.'
Following its myriad plots proves secondary to simply luxuriating in "Cranford."
