The stars of TV are descending on Hollywood for the Primetime Emmy awards, which take place on Sunday.
But they are increasingly being joined by their big screen counterparts, with Kate Winslet, Martin Scorcese and Guy Pearce all up for prizes this year.
Winslet and Pearce are both nominated for Mildred Pierce, a drama about a woman who bakes her way out of poverty.
The mini-series has nine nominations, second only to comedy show Modern Family, which has 11.
Scorcese is shortlisted for directing the pilot of Prohibition-era drama Boardwalk Empire, which dominated last week's arts and crafts Emmys, taking home seven prizes including outstanding cinematography.
The HBO programme is the show to beat in the best drama series category, where it threatens to rob advertising drama Mad Men of its fourth successive Emmy.
Other nominees in the category are The Good Wife, Dexter, Friday Night Lights and Game Of Thrones.
In HBO's Mildred Pierce, Winslet, 36, plays a divorced single mother who decides to open a restaurant business during 1930s Depression-era California.
The role was famously played by Joan Crawford in a 1945 film noir.
Winslet's nomination is for best actress in a mini-series, which pits her against Elizabeth McGovern, who plays the Countess of Grantham in ITV1's Downton Abbey.
Jean Marsh is also nominated in this category for her portrayal of parlour maid Rose Buck in the BBC's Upstairs, Downstairs.
Marsh, who co-created the series, played the same part more than 40 years ago and was nominated for an Emmy in 1974, 75 and 76.
Upstairs, Downstairs has also landed Dame Eileen Atkins a nomination for best supporting actress, thanks to her role as intimidating matriarch Lady Maud Holland.
She battles against Dame Maggie Smith, who plays a parallel character in Downton Abbey.
Other notable nominees include Hugh Laurie, for his role as misanthropic medical genius Gregory House; Steve Buscemi, who plays corrupt politician Enoch "Nucky" Thompson in Boardwalk Empire; and Laura Linney, who stars in black comedy The Big C.
The awards will be hosted by Glee's Jane Lynch, herself shortlisted for best supporting actress in a comedy series.
Presenters at the ceremony include movie star Zooey Deschanel and comedienne Amy Poehler.
At Saturday's run-through, Poehler jokingly presented her Emmy to Barack Obama, "for this rehearsal only."
When producers asked her to practice accepting the award, in case the recipient was absent, she playfully admonished: "[He] thought he was too special to come tonight. Bad move."
Meanwhile, stars attending the ceremony are being lavished with the customary gift bags.
Despite the economic downturn, freebies are in great abundance with notebook computers, designer sunglasses, handbags and even high-end baby strollers on offer.
But these are all distractions from the night's main prize - a golden Emmy statuette.
Shows with multiple nominations this year include Tina Fey's comedy series 30 Rock, and legal drama The Good Wife, both of which have six nods.
So, too, does Too Big To Fail, a dramatisation of the 2008 financial meltdown by LA Confidential director Curtis Hanson.
Other prominent nominees include Downton Abbey, with five, The Kennedys, Game Of Thrones, Saturday Night Live and the US adaptation of Swedish police procedural The Killing, all of which have four.
The ceremony will take place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles at 20:00 EDT (01:00 BST) on Sunday.
