The category is Best Miniseries or TV Movie.
We now know Big Little Lies is neither.
Ya’ll gonna let them pull a fast one on you like they did at the Emmys?
VOTE FEUD: BETTE AND JOAN. You can give it to Nicole Kidman and Skarsgard. Whatever. But be fair and don’t let their shady tactics let them take the category they shouldn’t have even qualified for! And that way Jessica and Susan can be rewarded as producers.
Also voters, wouldn’t it be great to see Michelle Pfeiffer up on that stage again instead of the incredibly goofy Big Bird Dern? I say YES! It was Michelle’s comeback year, it’s been since 1990! DO IT!

I wish they had the balls to not award them in Lead Actress and Limited Series (I have no problem with Dern/Woodley or Skarsgard winning because they’d be in the same category anyway) but they don’t have them. Kidman deserves to win anyway.December 15, 2017 at 4:45 am #1202440939
Okay, so clearly you’re just a Michelle Pfeiffer stan trying to discredit the competition.December 15, 2017 at 4:53 am #1202440948This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 15, 2017 at 5:41 am #1202440959This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 15, 2017 at 6:37 am #1202441013

BLL have a first season that don’t have a cliffhanger, don’t have any indices of continuity, have a close story. When the time comes of season 2 be nominated, they can put in the drama categories. But I don’t understand why the actors and the series itself can’t win for season 1, that was planned as a miniseries.
And it’s Fargo, not Feud that deserve win (with BLL out of the competition)December 15, 2017 at 2:30 pm #1202441352
They made the classifications of Big Little Lies as a limited series BEFORE HBO officially greenlit a 2nd season.December 15, 2017 at 3:26 pm #1202441361
Some people are just really, really stupid (talking about the industry/GG people). I mean if you buy Twin Peaks or Gilmore Girls as Limited Series then go ahead and buy BLL as limited series as well. The former two were a continuation of former series and the latter is the first season of a drama series. Then again, Downton Abbey won several Emmys in the same category so really they need better classifications for these categories. Otherwise, everyone will soon start their series as limited series and move on to renewing them according to reception.December 15, 2017 at 3:30 pm #1202441362
Don’t forget Twin Peaks and Sinner and Top of the Lake. Hell even Sherlock.
It is what it is. BBL started out as a limited series, became popular and was given a second season. Downton Abbey did this, it happens. Chill.
And no, Feud was not better than BBL.

Can’t believe I somewhat agree with one of montana’s useless troll threads. HBO deliberately sat on the renewal news until after SAG/Globes voting was completed, which is shady as fuck. Should the actors suffer b/c of that? No. It’s not their “faults,” after all. “Big Little Lies” was conceived as a limited series based on a novel that was exhausted from beginning to end. It became much more popular than anyone could have guessed or it had any right to be TBH. This second season is based on a new short story or something? So at least for this awards cycle, what’s done is done, I guess. No nominations are being rescinded or anything, and next cycle, everyone will make the necessary category placement changes to Drama. That’s all that can realistically happen. Since I’m partial to “Feud,” I wouldn’t mind some of this controversy to help turn the tide for Lange or Sarandon, at least. They were both stellar, and it would be nice to see one of them acknowledged at some point.
