Emmy Nominations 2013: Al Pacino, Helen Mirren and Oscar Winners Galore

Al Pacino Phil Spector Helen MirrenAl Pacino, Helen Mirren in Phil Spector: Emmy Awards 2013

The 2013 Emmy nominations were announced earlier today by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. As usual, there was a whole array of movie people nominated, including many with Academy Award pedigree.

Those include Best Actor Oscar winner Al Pacino (Scent of a Woman) and Best Actress Oscar winner Helen Mirren (The Queen), in the running for, respectively, Best Actor and Best Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie for Phil Spector; Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air), a Best Actress in a Drama Series nominee for Bates Motel (itself related to the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock classic Psycho); and Best Actor Oscar winner Michael Douglas (Wall Street) and Best Original Screenplay Oscar winner Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting), both up for the Best Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie Emmy for their performances in Behind the Candelabra – which also earned Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) an Emmy nod.

Here are a few more: two-time Oscar winner Kevin Spacey (The Usual Suspects, American Beauty), a Best Actor in a Drama Series nominee for House of Cards; two-time Oscar winner Maggie Smith (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, California Suite), a Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series nominee for Downton Abbey; and two-time Oscar winner Jane Fonda (Klute, Coming Home), up for the Best Guest Actress in a Drama Series Emmy for The Newsroom. (Coincidentally, Smith and Fonda's second Academy Award wins took place at the same Oscar ceremony, 1979.)

Here are a few more Academy Awards and 2013 Emmy Awards connections: Sigourney Weaver, Laura Dern, Don Cheadle, Ellen Burstyn, Alfre Woodard, Laura Linney, Jessica Lange, James Cromwell, Imelda Staunton, Richard LaGravenese, Jane Campion, Melissa Leo, Joan Cusack, David Fincher, Julian Fellowes, and Alec Baldwin. And let's not forget Alan J. Pakula's Best Picture Oscar nominee All the President's Men, as All The President's Men Revisited is in the running for an Emmy for Best Documentary Or Nonfiction Special.
