Let's peek into ABC's 2012 Emmy campaign contenders

ABC executives have decided to take a risk with two of their new dramas at this year's Emmys. Both "Missing" (with Ashley Judd) and "The River" (with Leslie Hope and Bruce Greenwood) will be competing in the movie/miniseries categories instead of drama. This probably means that the shows will not be renewed or that a second season would be dramatically different than the first. That second argument was made by FX last month when it classified the first season of "American Horror Story" as a miniseries.

On the funny side of the slate, "Modern Family" has claimed Best Comedy Series for two years running. It has been the net's only victory in this top race since "The Wonder Years" (1988), and only their second comedy ever to prevail multiple times after "Taxi" (1979 - 1981).

While "Modern Family" airs on ABC, it is produced by Fox Studios which handles its Emmy campaign. Other studios will be submitting such shows as "Happy Endings," "Last Man Standing," and "The Middle," so those placements should be confirmed soon.

Gold Derby has confirmed the official acting category submissions from ABC for shows that it produces. (Other eligible performers could be submitting on their own).
