Emmy Nominees: Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series

My predictions: 4/6, picking Julianna Margulies and Taylor Schilling over Maslany and Moss

I can't believe it - Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) finally did it! The best actress currently starring on television has an Emmy nomination to show for it, and it's wonderful. I'm also pleased that Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) earned some recognition for the final season of her show, in which she was great. It's too bad that Taylor Schilling didn't make the cut, and it's strange that Julianna Margulies didn't either since costar Alan Cumming got recognized again this year. Taraji P. Henson (Empire) turned out to be the sole beneficiary of her show, which didn't really get honored anywhere else. Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder) got in, joining returning nominees Claire Danes (Homeland) and Robin Wright (House of Cards), and ousting Lizzy Caplan, Michelle Dockery, and Kerry Washington. Quite the overhaul, keeping just two nominees.

Who should win? Maslany, naturally
Who will win? While I'd hope it was Maslany, I think that Davis or Henson will probably win.
