Emmy Contenders: Best TV Movie/Miniseries

Possible Contenders
Cinema Verite
Mildred Pierce
Too Big to Fail
The Sunset Limited
Downtown Abbey
Upstairs, Downstairs
The Kennedys
Any Human Heart
Wallander II
Pillars of the Earth
Jesse Stone: Innocents Lost
Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story
The Client List
Sherlock: A Study in Pink

Combining the Miniseries and TV Movies together was a smart idea considering how few miniseries were made in the last couple of years. That being said, it means that this category's competition has increased tremendously. Cinema Verite and Mildred Pierce, HBO's pet projects are sure to get in and will probably be the frontrunners, unless the Brits come to town and Upstairs, Downstairs or Downtown Abbey steals the prize. The acting in Carlos and The Sunset Limited is sure to be nominated (particularly the three lead actors), but I'm not sure if they can get nominated for the big prize (although they deserve to). Finally, there are a few question marks such as The Kennedys and Pillars of Earth, and whether the Academy will embrace them. Finally, the talented efforts of Luther and Too Big to Fail are going to be strong contenders, and will most likely get nominated on talent alone.
