Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture -- Made For Television: Idris Elba in "Luther"
And the nominees were:
Hugh Bonneville in "Downton Abbey"
Idris Elba in "Luther"
William Hurt in "Too Big to Fail"
Billy Nighy in "Page Eight"
Dominic West in "The Hour"
We couldn't get over listening to Idris Elba speak with an English accent given his breakthrough role as Stringer Bell in HBO's "The Wire." But listen to Elba we did as he won the award for the British detective series "Luther."
