Emmy Nominees: Best Lead Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie

My predictions: 3/5, missing Spencer and Washington

I really can’t believe that Merritt Wever (Unbelievable) didn’t get nominated here. I worried that might be the case with her costar Kaitlyn Dever, but I thought Wever was safe. I’m ecstatic that Shira Haas (Unorthodox) made the cut and legitimately surprised that Octavia Spencer (Self Made) was included (though she was very good in the first episode of her series). Kerry Washington (Little Fires Everywhere) did deliver a strong performance, and she got in over her costar Reese Witherspoon, who ended up with zero out of three possible acting nominations. Cate Blanchett (Mrs. America) and Regina King (Watchmen) remain the frontrunners here, but can Haas upset if they split the vote?

Who should win? Haas, Blanchett, or King
Who will win? I’m going to predict that Haas does eclipse Blanchett and King.
