Question: How is the Emmy chosen for best actress in a miniseries? Does the actress submit a certain block of time? Or do the voters watch the entire miniseries? I am hoping Gillian Anderson wins.
Answer: I'm assuming that those who volunteer to judge this category are sent the entire movie or miniseries and are expected to watch the entire performance. Anything less would be unfair. But since you asked, I hope that the length of Bleak House (considerably longer than any of the other nominated movies and minis) doesn't work against Gillian Anderson. Right now, this category seems a toss-up to me between her and Elizabeth I's Helen Mirren. (If I were voting, I'd go your way. Mirren was magnificent, as always, but Anderson was a revelation, and that performance still haunts me eight months after I saw it.)
