BBC/PBS Miniseries ‘Little Dorrit’ Is the Most-Honored on Emmy Night; HBO Takes Home the Most Awards for the Ninth Year

Sep 21, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The BBC/PBS eight-hour adaptation of Charles Dickens’ "Little Dorrit" was the most-honored program of this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards, winning seven awards including best miniseries, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

It was the second year in a row that a miniseries took home the most awards, after HBO’s “John Adams” did the same last year.

Of the eight awards in the long-form category, HBO took home five (with the other three going to “Little Dorrit”). HBO’s “Grey Gardens” was honored as the best movie, the 15th time in 17 years that HBO has won that award, reports Variety.

Overall, HBO won the most awards of any network, as it has for the previous eight years (2001 and 2002 were ties with NBC).
