    A&E Networks (either for History or Lifetime) has a 4-part Bonnie & Clyde miniseries in the works.

    Emile Hirsch, Holliday Grainger, Holly Hunter, and William Hurt have signed up for it.

    Yeah, this is going to be easy to predict

    Best Miniseries or TV Film
    Clear History
    Taylor/Burton Biopic
    Klondike
    The Normal Heart
    American Horror Story III

    In 2012, the Emmys chose to award this prize to Game Change, a political drama. It appears as if the award for 2013 is going to go to The Girl. I personally think this award will go to this historic miniseries next year. 

    Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Film
    Dominic West – Taylor/Burton Biopic
    Chris Cooper – Klondike
    Larry David – Clear History
    Mark Ruffallo – The Normal Heart
    Jon Hamm – Clear History
    William Hurt – Bonnie and Clyde

    There is something about David’s role in this that just screams “Emmy”. He is beloved by the Emmys, and if he chooses not to return for a ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, this will be their way of giving them his Lifetime Achievement Award

    Best Actress in a Miniseries or TV Film
    Helena Bonham-Carter – Taylor/Burton Biopic
    Julia Roberts – The Normal Heart
    Kate Hudson – Clear History
    Sarah Paulson – American Horror Story III
    Holly Hunter – Bonnie and Clyde
    Jessica Lange – American Horror Story III

    Reading the list of previous winners in this category is like reading from the book of Great Actresses. In the last 10 years, this award has gone to Julianne Moore, Kate Winslet, Claire Danes, Jessica Lange, Laura Linney, Helen Mirren, Meryl Streep and Maggie Smith. They will not resist Julia Roberts’ role as a wheelchair bound doctor treating an HIV+ man. She can start preparing her speech now

    Sight unseen, my pick would be Behind The Candelabra.  It’s got the biopic factor like The Girl, but with much greater star power in front of the camera (Michael Douglas, Matt Damon) and much greater prestige behind the camera (Steven Soderbergh, and it’s his last film as well which will only help ).  Plus it will be airing much closer to the voting period than The Girl (it should debut in May).  I would also put Parade’s End (they love epic British minseries) or even Phil Spector (again, greater star power with Pacino and Mirren and closer air date) ahead of The Girl, again, sight unseen.

    Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger should be listed up there. They are playing Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker after all.

    Are we listing only lead roles, or supporting as well? If the latter, then Matt Bomer for The Normal Heart. He will play Felix Turner, a meaty role, for which John Benjamin Hickey won Tony.

    Well, there’s no more supporting categories. Here’s hoping the Emmys bring them back after a one year absence (or better yet reverse their decision and have them this year).

    It’s going to be very hard for Supporting performances to get in now with the single category.  They’ll need to be either a huge name or have a ton of buzz.

    ^Agreed. With the cutting of the supporting categories, I’ve completely lost interest. It’s simply a matter of “Who cares anymore?” If these rules stood a few years ago then we would have had Claire Danes versus Julia Ormond, both for Temple Grandin. How could anyone not vote for Danes in a matchup like that? Same with Kate Winslet and Evan Rachel Wood, both for Mildred Pierce. Seriously, undo the decision in time for the Emmys this year. Absolutely my least favorite decision EVER made by the NATAS (and I thought omitting the Variety Performer category would never be topped).
