'Behind the Candelabra' is already the 2013 Emmy champion [Updated]
The honor goes to HBO's movie "Behind the Candelabra," which scored big at the Creative Arts Emmys a week before the primetime ceremony. The film about Liberace ( Michael Douglas) and his relationship with Scott Thorson ( Matt Damon) scored eight awards there.
It's also likely to pick up more awards Sunday -- a shutout in the movie and miniseries categories would be a huge upset. Even if that were to happen, though, no other show has a combination of Creative Arts wins and Primetime nominations to overtake "Behind the Candelabra."
The movie also has a pretty good chance to break the record for most Emmys by a TV movie. It currently belongs to "Eleanor and Franklin," which won 11 in 1976. (The record for a miniseries, incidentally, is 13 by "John Adams" in 2008.)
UPDATE: "Behind the Candelabra" won three awards at the Primetime Emmys, tying it with "Eleanor and Franklin" as the most-honored TV movie in Emmy history.
