One of the sure things at this Sunday’s Emmys is that Kate Winslet (“Mildred Pierce“) will win Best TV Movie/Miniseries Actress. Our exclusive Gold Derby statistics have her locked in at 1/25 odds as all eight experts, all 12 editors, and 87% of our users (497 votes) predict her to prevail. Academy Award winner Winslet (“The Reader,” 2009) took on the challenging title role for this HBO remake that won Joan Crawford the Oscar in 1945.
In a distant second place with 50/1 odds is Diane Lane (“Cinema Verite“). She portrayed Patricia Loud in an HBO behind-the-scenes movie focused on the first reality program in the early 1970s, “An American Family.”
The other three ladies are even further back with 100/1 odds. Jean Marsh returned to her Emmy-winning role (Best Drama Actress, 1975) of Rose Buck in a new version of “Upstairs, Downstairs” for PBS. Taraji P. Henson played the title role in “Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story” for Lifetime. Elizabeth McGovern portrayed Cora, the Countess of Grantham, on the PBS miniseries “Downton Abbey.”
