Tonight - Sherlock at the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards * 23 September 2012

Sherlock Emmy

Today, Sunday September 23 2012, sees the reveal of the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards.

After being nominated in a total of thirteen categories, Sherlock sadly didn't take away any awards from eight eligible nominations last Saturday at the Craft Awards, but remains nominated in five categories at tonight's ceremony.

Outstanding Miniseries or Movie
Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia

Lead Actor in a Mini-Series
Benedict Cumberbatch

Supporting Actor in a Mini-Series
Martin Freeman

Outstanding Directing For A Miniseries, Movie Or A Dramatic Special
Paul McGuigan, Director

Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special
Steven Moffat

Due to a quirk in the Emmy nomination process, only A Scandal in Belgravia has been nominated. This is due to Sherlock not featuring enough episodes to qualify as a Drama Series, but also as it is a returning series it cannot qualify purely as a Miniseries, and thus feature all three episodes. Under current Emmy nomination rules, the only way Sherlock could be submitted for the awards is as a Movie, and so only one episode was put forward for nomination.

Members of Team Sherlock are currently in Los Angeles to attend the ceremony, including Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, Sue Vertue and Paul McGuigan.

The Primetime Emmy Awards are airing live in the United States on ABC from 20:00EDT/17:00PDT. There is sadly no internet live streaming of the ceremony itself, though highlight programmes will be carried in the hours and days afterwards on regional channels worldwide. We will be updating links to Live Streams of Red Carpet arrivals through the day over on our Twitter page.

All that remains to be said is a huge GOOD LUCK to Team Sherlock at tonight's ceremony!
