Let's peek inside HBO's Emmy campaign box

April 15, 2011 |  2:29 pm

"Hey, where's 'Mildred Pierce'?" more than a few TV academy members gasped this week when they received HBO's box of campaign DVDs. Sorry, Emmy voters. Discs of the juicy miniseries currently unraveling on the pay channel will be part of another screener shipment you'll get next month. For now, it looks like you've got enough to watch.

The HBO box contains two booklets of info, hype and DVDs. One is devoted to TV movies/miniseries and specials, including "The Sunset Limited," "Wishful Drinking," "Ricky Gervais: Out of England 2 – The Stand-Up Special," "Tracy Morgan: Black and Blue," "Bette Midler: The Showgirl Must Go On," "The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town," "Teenage Paparazzo," "His Way," "Public Speaking," "Wartorn 1861-2010," "For Neda," "A Child's Garden of Poetry," "Masterclass."

The other booklet is devoted to the TV series and include the following episodes noted below.

See how this year's campaign box compares to the ones shipped by HBO in 2010 and 2009.
