Tomorrow the Emmys air. TV fanatics will discover whether or not their favorite programs will bring home the golden statue. To prepare for this award ceremony, let's take a look at some of the mini-series that have been nominated.
American Horror Story

American Horror Story: Coven Centered around a group of young ladies who descend from the historical Salem, Massachusetts witches, viewers were treated to a spine-tingling story set deep in the south - in New Orleans, Louisiana. Staring Jessica Lange as an Über -powerful headmistress who trains these specially talented ladies all the while trying to keep deep secrets in the past. Other notable stars in this Ryan Murphey creation included (but was not limited to): Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Denis O'Hare, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Gabourey Sidibe, James DuMont and Stevie Nicks.  
Bonnie and Clyde

Bonnie & Clyde We all know the basic story of Bonnie and Clyde. Two young people who take to the roads during the 1930's committing crimes as they go. Staring Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger in the titular roles, viewers are treated to a historical masterpiece that allows us to fully appreciate their backgrounds and what drove them to the point of criminality. Lane Garrison, Sarah Hyland, Holly Hunter, William Hurt, and Austin Hebert are several actors who help round out this cast.

Fargo If quirky, off-the-wall dramadies are your thing, Fargo takes the cake. Much in the style of Portlandia, this FX program centers around life in Fargo, North Dakota. Things are nice and quiet until a volatile drifter shows up into town. Then, chaos and crime ensues. Billy Bob Thornton, Allison Tolman , Colin Hanks, and Martin Freeman all play prominent roles in this niche crime drama.

Luther Originating across the pond in England, the BBC One cop series is both witty and dark. It's a quintessential British program. Idris Elba plays our leading investigator who is obsessed with his job, which often allows his violent streak to rear its ugly head. The job comes first. He's joined by Ruth Wilson, Warren Brown, Dermot Crowley, and Michael Smiley (among others).

Treme New Orleans must be a popular setting. This is the second series nominated to feature the Louisiana town. Dripping with heart and soul, the HBO show seems to truly grasp the intricacies of this southern place where racism is still a threat and passion runs rampant. Filled with a powerful cast, viewers can expect to see David Morse, Kim Dickens, Jon Seda, Lance E. Nichols, Lucia Micarelli Rob Brown, and Melissa Leo featured in the program.
The Emmys

The White Queen For those who love Elizabethan dramas filled with lust, love, and war - this might be one to tickle your fancy. This Starz drama allows viewers to watch the tru-ish story of Queen Elizabeth Woodville. Based on Philippa Gregory's historical series The Cousins' War, viewers are treated to life during the War of the Roses (the battle between the House of York and the House of Lancaster). An extensive cast makes up this 10-part series and includes Max Irons,   Rebecca Ferguson, Amanda Hale, Veerle Baetens, Michael Marcus, and Rupert Young. So, what do you think of these nominations?
