DAME HELEN MIRREN
Nominated for: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Mini series or Movie
Role: Linda Kenny-Baden in Phil Spector
Awards veteran Dame Helen Mirren is up for her tenth Emmy nomination for her role in HBO biopic Phil Spector.
Her first nomination came in 1994 for her role as DCI Jane Tennison in Prime Suspect; Mirren's won four awards since, the last coming in 2007 for (yes, again) Prime Suspect. Is current British export sensation Downton Abbey on the way to achieving that kind of longevity?
In Phil Spector, which aired in the UK on Sky Atlantic in June, she played Linda Kenney-Brown, defense attorney to music industry producer Phil Spector during his murder trial.
