2014 Emmy Predictions: Best Miniseries

By Peter Knegt and Ben Travers | Indiewire July 7, 2014 at 11:50AM

Here's our take on the best TV miniseries category.
8
Fargo

Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions through August 25th, when the winners will be announced. 

David Simon and HBO must be pretty pleased with themselves. Not only did shifting "True Detective" to the series competition pay off with an Outstanding Drama Nomination and two acting nods for their leads, but it made room for David Simon's "Treme" to score a nod in the Outstanding Miniseries category. It would be tough to pull out a win, seeing as "American Horror Story" continued its Emmys dominance with "Coven" scoring a ton of nods, and "Fargo" made the emphatic statement it wanted in the category as well, landing multiple acting nominations for most of its cast. Then you've got "The White Queen," a well respected Starz mini with a possible sequel on the horizon and "Luther," a beloved BBC drama with Simon's former co-worker on "The Wire." For being a sparse year for minis, it's also a solid bunch.


Below are predictions for best TV miniseries from both Indiewire Awards Editor Peter Knegt and Assistant TV Editor Ben Travers. Check out predictions in all the categories here.

The nominees:
"American Horror Story: Coven"
"Bonnie & Clyde"
