    The Starz UK miniseries The Missing ought to be nominated in all categories. It is simply phenomenal! Besides Best Limited Series, Best Lead Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie (James Nesbitt), Best Lead Actress in a  Limited Series or TV Movie (Frances O’Connor – who ought to give Frances McFormand’s Olive Kittredge and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s The Honorable Woman a strong race to the finish line, as all three actresses deserve the Emmy), Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie (Tcheky Karyo), Best Director (Tom Shankland), Best Writing (Harry Williams and Jack Williams) – I would make a strong case for:

    Best Supporting Actor: Titus De Voogdt (Vincent Bourg, as a tormented pedophile who is willing to try anything to end his affliction)
    Best Supporting Actress: Anamaria Marinca (Rini Dalca aka Louise de Mourtin, a Romanian junkie who gets a second chance at life and becomes a French schoolteacher)

    And that’s just a few of the phenomenal performances in this great miniseries! Ken Stott is masterful as the diabolical Ian Garrett; Diana Quick has only a few scenes – and it’s great to see her again 34 years after Brideshead Revisited – but she’s terrific in them; Emilie Dequenne as female detective Laurence Relard; Anastasia Hille – truly remarkable as Julien’s wife Celia; and Jason Flemyng is great too as Mark Walsh, the british detective who falls in love with Emily. All of the others are equally deserving of praise, a really remarkable ensemble!

    The miniseries deserves recognition for it’s music and it’s editing as well. Truly an A+ production.

    I’ve noticed that Frances O’Connor has (deservedly) been getting nominations from various prize-giving organizations, but I hope the Emmys also nominate James Nesbitt’s ferocious tenacious performance as the obsessed father endlessly searching for his missing son. Truly superb performances!
