Double Emmy honour for Brits.
Finney, 66, won the US Television Academy of Arts and Sciences award for best actor in a mini series or made-for-TV movie.
He won the award - the television equivalent of the Oscars - for his acclaimed performance as Sir Winston Churchill in The Gathering Storm.
British stars Kenneth Branagh, who starred as the legendary explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton in Shackleton, and Sir Michael Gambon, who played former US President Lyndon Johnson in Path to War, were also up for the award along.
And there was also success for British rock star Sting who won the Emmy for best individual performance in a variety or music programme.
Sting's award was for 'A&E in Concert: Sting in Tuscany' and he triumphed over fellow nominees Billy Joel, Jon Stewart, Wayne Brady and Ryan Stiles.
