Kate Winslet - Kate Winslet Storms Emmy Nominations With 'Mildred Pierce'

Kate Winslet's Hbo miniseries 'Mildred Pierce' looks certain to win silverware this year after gaining an incredible 21 nominations for the 2011 Emmy Awards. The drama, about a divorced single-mother who decides to open her own restaurant business, dominated the nominations announced on Thursday (14th July 2011), reports the New York Times.
Some critics suggest Winslet gives the finest performance of her Oscar-winning career in the mini-series, and the actress is likely to walk away with 'Best Actress' come the ceremony on 18th September 2011. Elsewhere, the bosses at Amc will be delighted after their 60's drama 'Mad Men' received 19 nominations with Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss up for the leading acting gongs. The award for 'Outstanding Comedy Series' looks set to be a straight battle between 'The Office', '30 Rock' and 'Modern Family' with the latter regarded as the favourite to triumph. The acclaimed 'Boardwalk Empire' has been nominated for 'Best Drama Series', but it faces stiff competition in the form of 'Mad Men', 'Friday Night Lights', 'Dexter' and the recent 'Game of Thrones', starring Sean Bean. A series of surprise nominations went to 'The Kennedys', which was dropped by the History Channel but subsequently taken on by the 'ReelzChannel'.
It was recently announced that Kate Winslet will star in the upcoming action-drama 'Americana', about a farmer and slave owner who flees the American Civil War for Brazil.
