    I just noticed in our prediction center — http://www.goldderby.com/odds/index/202/ — that “Olive Kitteridge” is predicted to win three acting Emmys: Frances McDormand, Richard Jenkins and Bill Murray.

    Has that ever happened before? What’s the record for movie/mini acting trophies? Has anything ever won MORE than two acting awards in the same year?

    Angels in America prettty much swept the telecast. Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, Jeffrey Wright, Mary-Louise Parker, and then the Writing and Directing prizes to go along with the Miniseries win.

    Temple Grandin managed it a few years ago! (Claire Danes, David Strathairn, Julia Ormond)

    John Adams took home prizes for Paul Giamattie, Laura Linney, and Tom Wilkinson.

    Roots also won 3 acting Emmys, though the categories were weird at the time. (I mean, Edward Asner won for Roots. Come on.)

    The Thorn Birds won 3 as well.

    Technically, The Glass Menagerie won 4 acting Emmys in 1974, but that was the year of the “Super Emmy,” so Michael Moriarty and Joanna Miles won both as supporting actors in drama and as supporting actors of the year.

    I have 0 clue why Bill Murray is in the number one slot. What on earth did he do in that mini series minus eat dinner with Frances McDormand for 15 minutes?

    Temple Grandin shouldn’t have won three. I liked the film and performances well enough but three acting awards was overkill.

    I always order my nomination predictions based on likelihood of nomination.  It is a pretty scattered category, so I consider him the most likely to get in.

    I think he’ll be the John Goodman “Dancing on the Edge” pick this year. Yeah a big name but I don’t think that will be enough.

    Bill Murray didn’t give an incredible performance in “Olive Kitteridge”. It was just very good, but he is Bill Murray so they want to nominate him because he is a big star. Also I agree that “Temple Grandin” may not have deserved 3 acting EMMYs.

    I think your under minding the Emmys. They are alot smarter especially in these cateorgies than say the Globes. They go after actual performances like Joe Mantello in The Normal Heart or John Benjamin Hickey in The Big C: Hereafter

    Most people do. That’s why they still like the Emmys.
