Cranford or Emma?

I never do this (or really cared all that much), but since The King's Speech was up for many awards, I was looking through the nominees for The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Then I noticed under "Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television", both Romola Garai for Emma (2009) and Judi Dench for Cranford (2007) were nominated.

Judi Dench as Miss Matty of Cranford vs. Romola Garai as Emma Woodhouse of Emma

I gotta say, I'm really stuck! I liked both miniseries. Which do you think should win?


  1. Wow, what a hard choice! It's almost like comparing apples to oranges. Judi Dench's Miss Matty with her sweet, quiet dignity or Romola Garai with her fiesty, playful Emma. I'm a little bit prejudiced, because Emma is one of my favorite stories, but I really liked Cranford, too. I think for me it would have to be a tie! I know they probably don't do that on the Golden Globes. :)

  2. I unfortunately can't offer an opinion since I haven't seen Cranford. But it would take a lot to beat Emma/Romola!

  3. I would have to say Emma. I think she did a really good job. :-)
