Emmy Nominees: Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series

My predictions: 6/6

This was one of my only perfect scores this year, and I’m pretty proud of it even though it was because there were no surprises. Claire Danes finally got left off the list, and Taraji P. Henson also failed to make the cut after being nominated previously. Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder) and Robin Wright (House of Cards) return with similar support for their shows, and Keri Russell (The Americans) also made it back in despite her show missing the mark in the top race. I still have to watch – and will soon begin - Claire Foy (The Crown), but that wasn’t a surprise at all. Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld) wasn’t a lock, representing her very adored show, which scored in all four major acting categories. Best of all, Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) made it in for a superb turn, and her show did terrifically across all categories as well. I’m pretty happy with this list.

Who should win? I don’t watch Russell’s show or Davis’, and haven’t yet seen Foy’s. Out of the rest, Moss should win this.
Who will win? I’ll need to watch the episodes, but I’m actually going to guess that Moss manages to beat Foy since the two haven’t actually et faced each other.
