    I am totally rooting for Wendie malick! She is suppose to produce or direct the movie also. But since she is not getting any love in the comedy categories ( Hot in Cleveland, Just shoot me ) then maybe she can pull off an Emmy win with Wild Horse Annie. I know for a fact that she is a strong activist against Horses being abused, and the film is about that subject so i know it is close to her heart. Go Wendie!

    wait……. since when does Adam Levine act……. he can hardy sing. If there is one thing that annoys me it’s singers who get acting jobs without even working for it or having any talent. And the other way around too! That’s why i appreciate people like Streisand, and Garland, Sinatra, and Cher. They can act and sing.

    I think Parade’s End will be our eventual winner. It’s written by Tom Stoppard and stars Rebecca Hall and Benedict Cumberbatch, who might finally be able to score a nomination (assuming he’s snubbed again for Sherlock).

    Upstairs Downstairs and Wallander will both be eligible, but they’ll both need to generate more buzz.

    Political Animals seems like it could be a test-run for a legitimate TV series. I know USA is promoting it as a “limited series event,” but isn’t that what they did with The Starter Wife? Greg Berlanti is known for his regular series (he has never done a miniseries before) and Vanessa Redgrave was announced as a “guest star,” so I would not be surprised if USA decides to switch it to the series categories if it ends up being successful.

    Sandra Oh had a small chance of returning to Emmy nominees list with the British miniseries Thorne, which aired on Encore not too long ago, but now that the Emmys have eliminated the supporting categories she doesn’t have a prayer.

    Where the hell is Lindsay Lohan for “Liz & Dick”!? I know the movie is gonna be your typical Lifetime biopic but I have a feeling she’s gonna give a good performance (at least I hope so).

     

    It’s shame that there’s no supporting categories next year because that means the ladies from “Steel Magnolias” are screwed. Of course Alfre Woodard will get nominated but what about others?

     

    I’d love, absolutely love if Wendie Malick got nominated for “Wild Horse Annie” but do they even started filming? It’d be so nice to see her win something.

     

    As for “Political Animals” it’s a limited drama series. “The Starter Wife” was a mini-series. They did not intend to make more episodes. After the mini-series became successful they decided to make it a series but because it was always intended to be a mini-series they needed to recast some of the parts because actors did not have any contractual obligation to do the series. The same thing USA is doing with Political Animals, they did with 4400. It started with 5-episodes first season and then other seasons got 13-episodes order.

     

    I’d also like to add Sienna Miller, Toby Jones and Imelda Staunton for “The Girl”. I’m hearing Sienna is absolutely brilliant as Tippi Hedren so she could be a front-runner.

    I’d add Chloe Sevigny for Hit & Miss, playing a transgender assassin. I think that’s eligible for next year.

    ^ Isn’t it a drama series? I’ve already seen it and thought it’s drama series. She’s quite good though.

    It only has 6 episodes in it, therefore they’ll probably submit it as a mini-series.

    Behind the Candelabra starring Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as Scott Thorson, Liberace’s lover
    The Day the Laughter Stopped starring Eric Stonestreet as Fatty Arbuckle

    These two HBO films look promising, but it is still in production and there’s no air date yet, which means it could be eligible in Emmy 2014.

    There’s also the long-awaited Titanic: Blood And Steel and Coma. And, as far as HBO Films and Sevigny are concerned, Lizzie Borden could end up premiering this season.

    I did some internet surfing and found out that Wendie Malicks movie Wild Horse Annie is set to premiere in the summer of 2012. But that article was almost a year ago, so who knows. It will probably be out by Fall/Winter. Can’t wait to see it!

    BBC America will air new seasons of “Luther” and “The Hour”.

    Sundance Channel will air the seven-part miniseries “Top of the Lake” by Jane Campion starring Elisabeth Moss and Holly Hunter.
