    This looks really good and could very well play out how Wolf Hall did.

    At the very least Tom Hardy’s star power should get him a nomination, but that could end up being a real player depending on how stacked the categories are next year because if they are as stacked as this year it might be tough.

    Tom Hardy will easily get his nomination, so will Ridley Scott. But the question is can either of the supporting actors, Michael Kelly and Jonathan Pryce, get a nomination? Can’t wait for the show tbh.

    Cool!

    They keep billing this as an “eight-episode drama series”, so it is a drama with Tom Hardy?  I cannot tell.

    Odd that they have cast Michael Kelly amongst all those Brits. But he will be my ticket to watch this show.
    Still don’t get what people find on Tom Hardy. By both physically and his acting.

    I really like this trend of movie stars doing TV, even if it is “limited”.

    Yeah it’s great but there are certain movie stars that will never do TV shows even the ‘limited’ ones such as Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz or Sandra Bullock.

    I could easily see Diaz or Bullock doing an 8-10 episode limited series.  Kidman/Witherspoon could not get Big Little Lies done as a movie, now it is going to be a HBO limited series (I have heard 7 episodes).  Amy Adams is part of the package shopping around Sharp Objects as a limited series after not being able to do the book as a film.   I think if Diaz or Bullock were really passionate about doing a certain project, they would turn to cable or streaming if needed.

    I Loved it. Tom Hardy was great. He will be a front runner for the Emmy. I also thought Jonothan Pryce was great and will definitely be in the race. The limited series category is super crowded so I am not sure there will be room in the series category, but I hope there is. It was a little bit slow, but I could tell it was all set up. I cannot wait for more

    Sorry, but Limited Series has become one of the most loaded categories at the Emmys. It will be again this year and I don’t see this making the cut.

    Tom Hardys star power alone should net him a nomination
