    The teaser trailer to HBO’s “Phil Spector” is out. The film premieres on Sunday, March 24, 2013 @ 9 PM ET, starring Al Pacino, Helen Mirren, and Jeffrey Tambor. Written and directed by David Mamet. Major Emmy contender this year.

    I was turned off by the trailer and no matter how much I love Pacino in the 70’s lately he is hamming it up and once again he is doing that. I say this as a complaint but I know he will probably win it all again unless Behind the Candelabra turns out to be a stunning piece and goodwill for the last effort from Soderbegh could push Douglas to a win.

    I don’t think so because she has competition from Jessica Lange for an amazing season and an OVERDUE Elizabeth Moss.

    She’s here for the win, that’s for sure, will she win? I’m not so sure. I’m rooting for Moss too but she needs a great campaign.

    Lange won’t win again, about that I’m sure.

    I don’t get why so many people are so sure Elisabeth Moss will even get nominated. There’s only 6 spots, and she’ll have to compete with alot of A list actresses (not saying she’s not a great actress, but she’s not A-list).

    She’ll have to compete with

    Holly Hunter (been nominated for EVERY TV project she’s done. 2-time Emmy winner. Academy Award winner)
    Sigourney Weaver (3 time Academy Award nominee. 2 previous Emmy nominations)
    Jessica Lange (2 time Academy Award winner. 4 other Oscar nominations. 2 time Emmy winner. Last year’s winner. She’s won for the past 2 TV movies/miniseries she’s done)
    Angela Bassett (Academy Award nominee. Previous Emmy nominee)
    Hilary Swank (2-time Academy Award winner)
    Brenda Blethyn (2-time Academy Award nominee. 2 previous Emmy nominations)
    Helen Mirren (Academy Award winner. 3 other Academy Award nominees. 4-time Emmy winner. 5 previous Emmy nominations)
    Queen Latifah (Academy Award nominee. Previous Emmy nominee)
    Alfre Woodard (Academy Award nominee. 4-time Emmy winner. 12 other Emmy nominations)
    Laura Linney (3 time Academy Award nominee. 3 time Emmy winner. 1 other Emmy nomination)
    Ellen Burstyn (Academy Award winner. 5 other Academy Award nominations. Emmy winner. 4 other Emmy nominations)

    All Elisabeth Moss has to her name is 6 Emmy nominations. She is a great actress, but she’s not an A-lister. Holly Hunter, Sigourney Weaver, Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett, Hilary Swank, Brenda Blethyn, Helen Mirren, Laura Linney, and even Alfre Woodard are ahead of her for a nomination.

    I don’t think Angela Bassett is ahead of her, at all. Weaver has project that everybody knows that was cancelled, I’m not so sure about her nomination and Holly Hunter is simply a supporting actress in the miniseries that Moss is starring, she won’t be nominated ahead of her either.

    Helen Mirren and Jessica Lange are the only locks in this category, imo.

    Blethyn is a respect actress but she isn’t A-list and will have to fight with Swank in her own movie. Also, Swank was snubbed in a HBO movie before.

    Queen Latifah was passed over by the SAGs and the GGs, I think Woodard has a better chance than her.

    Linney, however, with the support of Showtime and being Laura Linney is certainly a threat for a nomination.

    Moss only depends of support, if the channel makes very good campaign to her, I think she can win even against bigger stars.

    I believe Hunter is a lock. She has been nominated for EVERY TV project she has EVER done. And Angela Bassett is playing the role of Martin Luther King Jr.’s wife. She’s is getting that nomination.

    Right now, my predictions are….

    Angela Bassett – Betty & Coretta
    Holly Hunter – Top of the Lake
    Jessica Lange – American Horror Story: Asylum
    Laura Linney – The Big C: Hereafter
    Helen Mirren – Phil Spector
    Hilary Swank – Mary & Martha

    alt. Sigourney Weaver – Political Animals

    If we had separate categories for Lead and Supporting, like we should, then the nominees would be…

    Lead Actress:
    Angela Bassett – Betty & Coretta
    Jessica Lange – American Horror Story: Asylum
    Laura Linney – The Big C: Hereafter
    Helen Mirren – Phil Spector
    HIlary Swank – Mary & Martha
    Sigourney Weaver – Political Animals

    Supporting Actress:
    Brenda Blethyn – Mary & Martha
    Mary J. Blige – Betty & Coretta
    Ellen Burstyn – Political Animals
    Holly Hunter – Top of the Lake
    Phylicia Rashad – Steel Magnolias
    Alfre Woodard – Steel Magnolias

    Somebody’s not going to make it in that combined roster, even with the A-list name recognition. The supporting people are going to be at the biggest disadvantage (except for Alfre Woodard, and you know why that is). I wouldn’t discount Elisabeth Moss so easily. The early reviews for “Top of the Lake” have been strong, and it’s helmed by well-regarded Oscar-nominated filmmaker Jane Campion. Sundance can’t afford the kind of campaign HBO provides, of course, but Moss has her street cred too thanks to “Mad Men.” I think Moss could get in over a couple of those “lead” names. And Woodard gets bumped up to top tier.

    I know Hunter was nominated for EVERY TV project she has EVER done, I said that time ago in the miniseries contenders thread. But now she’s a supporting (we don’t even know how big is her character) character fighting in a category that’ll probably be filled with lead actors that include the star of her project. She’s certainly beloved by the Emmys (I mean, Saving Grace? LOL) but I don’t think she’s a lock, at all.

    My predictions:

    1. Jessica Lange, American Horror Story
    2. Helen Mirren, Phil Spector
    3. Alfre Woodard, Steel Magnolias
    4. Elisabeth Moss, Top of the Lake
    5. Laura Linney, The Big C: Hereafter
    6. Hilary Swank, Mary & Martha
