More Emmys: TV academy reverses awards plan


LOS ANGELES (AP) — A TV miniseries and movie comeback will mean more Emmy Awards than expected at this year's ceremony.

The TV academy's board of governors said it's reversing its 2012 decision to combine lead and supporting acting honors for such projects.

In a statement, the board said that because of the "unanticipated resurgence" of TV miniseries and movies, it was reinstating the separate acting categories.

The board was swayed by a rich field of potential contenders, including Elisabeth Moss and Holly Hunter in Sundance Channel's "Top of the Lake" and Ben Whishaw and Dominic West in BBC America's "The Hour."
