Emmy Nominees: Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series

My predictions: 5/7, missing Davis and Moore

I realized after this list was announced that Julia Roberts was missing, but I had no idea that “Homecoming” got completely shut out aside from a cinematography bid. That’s disappointing, since even though it wasn’t perfect, it definitely had an appeal. Here, there was room for Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder) to sneak back in after a year off (though she did manage a guest acting bid for the same role last year), and, most excitingly, Mandy Moore (This Is Us) finally earned the nomination she richly deserved last year. I’m most excited about Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) joining costar and expected winner Sandra Oh (Killing Eve), getting recognition for the show that really blew up this year with nominations all over the place. Laura Linney (Ozark) also got nominated along with her very popular show. It seems unnecessary that Robin Wright (House of Cards) is here for the final season of her show, while I’m much more okay with Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) being honored for an intense and unforgettable turn in the final season of hers.

Who should win? I don’t watch Linney or Davis’ shows regularly, but I’m all in for Comer.
Who will win? I would love for Comer to upset, but I think Oh takes it.
