My predictions: 2/5, picking only Danes and Dench
Who’s missing: Winona Ryder (When Love is Not Enough), Maggie Smith (Downton Abbey)
I really haven’t seen any miniseries or TV movies recently, so I was hopeless from the start in this category. Hope Davis (The Special Relationship) got pushed down to the supporting category, making room for Hayley Atwell (The Pillars of the Earth), Romola Garai (Emma), and, less impressively, Jennifer Love Hewitt (The Client List) to join Claire Danes (Temple Grandin) and Judi Dench (Return to Cranford). Feel free to comment if you’ve seen any of these performances.
Who could win? Given how nuts the Emmys went for “Temple Grandin,” I wouldn’t root against Danes.
