FX’s anthology drama series American Horror Story will be submitted as a miniseries for Emmy consideration. FX made an inquiry, and after The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Awards Committee and Board of Governors ruled that AHS is eligible for both the Drama Series and Miniseries categories, the network has opted to enter it as a mini. That will obviously increase the show’s chances for trophies as the drama series field will be crowded this season with the addition of Downton Abbey, which won the best movie/miniseries Emmy last year and has now moved to the best drama series category, and the return of Breaking Bad in Emmy contention. Of course, AHS co-star Jessica Lange, who already won a Golden Globe and a SAG Award in the drama series categories, is a frontrunner for an Emmy regardless of the field she is submitted in. Because of its anthology format, meaning new storylines, characters and cast each season, a season of AHS could be perceived as a miniseries/limited series.
