It’s a strange category to handicap this year. Sunday’s ceremony will most likely see a face-off between Showtime’s Homeland and PBS’s Downton Abbey, both of which won in 2012.
How is that possible? Because Downton Abbey competed in the Mini-Series/TV Movie category last year. Jumping categories is a dangerous move, but if there’s one group of viewers as ardent as Homeland fans, it’s Downton Abbey fans.
What does that mean for the other contenders — AMC’s Breaking Bad and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and The Newsroom? Find out by clicking through the gallery at the top of this article.
