SAG Predictions: Best Female Actor in a Drama Series

Last year’s nominees: Claire Danes (Homeland), Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder), Julianne Margulies (The Good Wife), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Maggie Smith (Downton Abbey), and Robin Wright (House of Cards).

The rundown: Every actress nominated last year might be back again this year, though I doubt we’ll have six nominees this time around. Since SAG voters don’t usually love new fall shows, I think the likeliest contenders to join this group as those from earlier in the year, like Taraji P. Henson (Empire) or Felicity Huffman (American Crime), Jean Smart (Fargo), and Kirsten Dunst (Fargo), whose shows contend in this category here. I would love for Maslany to be back, but I’m worried that once was enough to please SAG voters.

Current predictions: Danes, Davis, Huffman, Margulies, Wright
