    I apologize if we already have a thread for this. I couldn’t find one.  I am wondering if anybody else is thinking this race in 2016 is basically between Sarah Paulson for “People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story” and Kerry Washington for “Confirmation”.    Are these two ladies basically the two top contenders?   

    Am I wrong to consider Kerry a top contender?   I know a lot of people want Angela Lansbury to win, but I’m not hopeful she will.

    Thoughts?

    I am rooting for Kerry but the best performance was given by Kirsten.
    Basically because I like her(and her style) and she’s the only viable contender who’s not a fraud in this category.

    No matter what people say, this category isn’t strong. Bates will get another name-check/filler nomination and I wouldn’t be surprised if all 6 ladies at the top of prediction center turns out to be our nominees, because who else? It reminds of me 2014’s Mini Lead Actor race.

    I think Kirsten Dunst still has a chance, the race is not over for her. Other than those three the rest will be filler nominees.

    I am also curious how well received the Roots remake is going to be.  That may change things in the Limited Series categories, if it is well reviewed and gets decent ratings.

    Right now my predictions are as follows:

    Sara Paulson, People Vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story
    Kerry Washington, Confirmation
    Angela Lansbury, Driving Miss Daisy
     Kirsten Dunst, Fargo 
    Felicity Huffman, American Crime
    Kathy Bates, American Horror Story…

    I honestly was on the verge of replacing Huffman with Blythe Danner, but I’m not sure that Madoff was recieved well enough by critics to warrant such a nomination.

    I know many love Dunst, and Fargo is a well liked show, but I’m really thinking Paulson or Washington are the front-runners.    I think Confirmation is too splashy a title not to get some nominations, and Paulson has been the most talked about performance all season for a limited series.

    The race is definitely between Paulson and Washington and unless Confirmation is a critical flop Washington is probably the front runner. As much as I love Dunst she is not going to win. The average voter probably still looks at her as the young romantic comedy actress from the early 2000s. At best she is a distant third

    Yeah, unless “Confirmation” stinks, Washington likely prevails.

    Lansbury needs to do a guest spot on “Modern Family” or something.

    As far as I am concerned, Audra McDonald already has this category locked down.

    For now I think the nominees will be 

    Kathy Bates – American Horror Story: Freak Show
    Kirsten Dunst – Fargo
    Felicity Huffman – American Crime
    Rachel McAdams – True Detective
    Sarah Paulson – The People vs. O.J. Simpson
    Kerry Washington – Confirmation

    I honestly don’t think Audra McDonald is a popular enough name that could beat any of these (+ Kristen Wiig, Blythe Danner, Angela Lansbury or Lady Gaga) and that will cause a meltdown among her fans here come the nominations day.

    McAdams is not getting in for TD!

    I’m really rooting for a Felicity Huffman nomination and a Paulson win.

    I’m totally rooting for Paulson because she’s more overdue than Washington. Obviously, I haven’t seen Washington yet, but if the performance is great and she wins, then I would be okay with that because I also like her. I think Dunst is still in the race, but her buzz will not be as loud as Paulson’s or Washington’s. For the final three slots, I’m going with McDonald, Huffman, and Lansbury. Neither Bates nor Gaga deserves a nod for “Hotel,” and I think/hope the Emmys move away from that show this year as it does not deserve the nominations. I’m giving the advantage to Paulson right now because everyone is absolutely raving about her performance, but if Washington comes in strong, it will be an exciting race for two deserving actresses.

    Do not act surprised when she misses on nomination day. They have a history of not nominating performances like that. Emma Thompson got in last year, but Audra McDonald’s name is nowhere near as a big.

    Nobody has to deserve a nomination or a win, to get nominated/win at the Emmys. If they are popular enough they can easily get the nomination/win. 

    ———-

    Something interesting about Globe winners here is: in the 21st century/since 2000 the winner of the Globe in this category missed a nomination at the Emmys only once in 2002 with Uma Thurman, 1 time in 90’s for Helen Mirren but she was nominated for another project,  3 times in the 80’s for Loretta Young, Liza Minelli & Jane Seymour.

    I think Lady Gaga will be the anomaly of this decade since every decade has at least one so far, but she is far and ahead for a nomination than Audra McDonald, and so are the others I named.

    The Little Monster in me did not let me rest on this topic, mess :rip: .

    Paulson has been fantastic this year, but I thought Felicity Huffman’s perfomance was fantastic from start to finish!
