    If “Downton Abbey” submits in the miniseries/movie categories again this year at the Emmys (as opposed to the drama series categories), is this an example of category fraud? Season Two just ended and Season Three will begin later this year in England.

    What do you guys think?

    Yes, category fraud indeed.

    Bianco of USA Today said Emmys have always been about how a show is what it says it is and that’s it! He brought up Winds of War and War and Rememberance and those were a lot longer than many series that ran those seasons that were nominated for drama but they were nominated for miniseries.

    Doesn’t matter. They can’t change it now.

    That is how I feel too. Normally, I would be annoyed, but that show is too good and that category has seen some shit winners recently. As long as the quality is there, I wouldn’t mind it do what Mad Men and 30 Rock have done in the series categories.

    Once a Mini-Series has a second season, it is no longer a mini-series in my opinion. But I know that the Emmys have always supported the “once a drama, always a drama” ideal (as they did with Boston Legal years after it became a comedy), so I guess we just have to sit back and let things happen.
