The political dramatic soap that followed Sigourney Weaver as Elaine Barrish, the former First Lady and Governor of Illinois, and current Secretary of State, who by the conclusion of the mini is once again seeking to become the first female President of the United States, was nominated in the category of Outstanding Miniseries or Movie. Weaver was nominated in the category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie, while co-star and onscreen mother, Ellen Burstyn (Margaret Barrish Worthington), was nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie category.
