First of all, thanks so much to GoldDerby for sharing the Showtime, HBO, Lifetime, and even ABC campaign packages. However, a major missing piece seems to me to be the PBS campaign. Usually, we have the information by this time and I noticed already that Gillian Anderson for Great Expectations was moved from lead to supporting in the predictions center, so I assume that somebody knows something so far. Unlike most other networks (possibly because so few of the affiliated individuals are LA-based?), PBS’s campaigned individuals are usually it for PBS entries at the Emmys. I see on Ebay that there are Emmy boxes for Downton Abbey/Page Eight and Great Expectations/Sherlock, so I was just curious if anyone knew who was being campaigned from these productions and if other PBS productions (The Song of Lunch, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and Birdsong) were being campaigned. Thanks!
A full story is coming very soon. We are working on it right now.
Here’s the contenders list!
I am now kind of hoping, though chances seem slim right now, that “Downton Abbey” get some acting nods besides Maggie Smith. Love that both Dan Stevens and Michelle Dockery are in leads, b/c they were. Maybe supporting actor could get a surprise nod for the show in the form of either Jim Carter or Brendan Coyle?
Thanks for all you your work, Boomer and the rest of GoldDerby!
Nice to see Dockery, Stevens, Froggatt, Carter, and Glen added to last year’s submitted performers. I still think that just McGovern and Smith will eke outs nods, but I’m glad to see PBS playing more aggressively.
In the mini/movie categories, glad to see that Sherlock is still a mini (I know that each “episode” is a self-contained story, but category moves have been so confusing lately!), but sorry not to see Andrew Scott entered, especially after his BAFTA nod. Otherwise, no Mystery of Edwin Drood at all or Song of Lunch in the program category is somewhat surprising, and the aforementioned Anderson entry in supporting should bode well for her. I’d argue she’s even a threat to win there, especially if Lange enters the leading category, which is not outside the realm of plausible entries. I’m moving Thompson into that last leading slot for now, primarily because she’s a past Oscar and Emmy winner, but I’m really curious who ultimately ends up entered and nominated in this category.
