2012 Emmy Nomination Predictions: Television Movie/Miniseries

2012 Nomination Predictions
1. Game Change
2. American Horror Story
3. Hatfields & McCoys
4. Great Expectations
5. The Hour
6. Hemingway and Gelhorn

Other Contenders - Page Eight, Sherlock, Birdsong, Five
Commentary - An interesting mix of movies and miniseries, but certaintly not the strongest year. What we do know is that Game Change will be big with the Emmys, and will probably end up winning this award. Hatfields & McCoys is also a pretty safe bet considering how huge it was when it was released in May, right around the time Emmy ballots were out. There are a lot of British products, and while Sherlock did well with critics and Page Eight is sure to get some acting nods, I think that The Hour and Great Expectations are overall more potent contenders. American Horror Story will have to overcome the genre barrier, but with a light year, and a lot of press, I think that it could do it, and definitely should. Finally, while Hemingway and Gelhorn got mixed reviews, it has too much star power to pass up, similar to last year' The Kennedy's, and will probably get in and take the last slot.
