    Maggie Gyllenhaal, “The Honorable Woman”

    Felicity Huffman, “American Crime”

    Jessica Lange, “American Horror Story: Freak Show”

    Queen Latifah, “Bessie”

    Frances McDormand, “Olive Kitteridge”

    My gut says McDormand. Although I would prefer anyone else in the category.

    I want Maggie Gyllenhaal to win but would be also very happy if Frances McDormand or Queen Latifah won. I don’t want Huffman, Thompson and Lange to win because it’s category fraud. And in Lange case she also doesn’t deserve it. Oh, and McDormand is gonna win.

    Here’s my line-up if anyone’s interested (in alphabetical order):

    Aunjanue Ellis “The Book of Negroes”
    Kelli Garner “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe”
    Maggie Gyllenhaal “The Honorable Woman”
    Queen Latifah “Bessie”
    Frances McDormand “Olive Kitteridge”

    That would be a killer line up! Garner and Ellis were so snubbed but you know Emmy voters, they love them some name-checking more than anything.

    You know what, I actually think McDormand is far from a lock. I’m feeling Gyllenhaal.

    I really hope it’s Huffman. She’s clearly the best in the category. Her character is disliked for sure, but it should be about the performance – she’s not the star of her show like the other ladies (screentime-wise), but everytime she’s on screen, she’s breathtaking!

    I love Gyllenhaal too, she would make a very deserving winner.

    As of Lange…name recognizion made her a nominee. Otherwise, her performance playing the same characters all over again is bullshit in “Freak Show”.

    McDormand is absolutely sensational. I wonder if voters are ranking them or rating them as it could have a profound effect on the winners.

    Well I, for once, am pulling for Lange. In my opinion, she is amazing in Freakshow. I understand why some people wouldn’t like it, but it wasn’t name check. She made American Horror Story – without her, the past seasons would have been nothing. I don’t think she will win, I think this is McDormand’s to lose, but I am really hoping for an upset win by Jessica, just like last year.

    Probably McDormand but I would prefer Queen Latifah or Emma Thompson. Unfortunately, I didn’t see the latter but a friend of mine did and said she was incredible.

    Felicity Huffman completely deserved her nomination. Emma Thompson on the other hand…

    Anyway, either Latifah or McDormand would find my me. I’m really close to predicting Lange though. After last year, it’s clear voters LOVE Lange.

    I can understand the burnout RE : Jessica Lange. She had some episodes that were tired. But there were 2 or 3 episodes so well written, tailored specifically to Lange’s gifted ability to showcase nuances unlike any other working actress today. Why can’t her people get her the movie roles like Meryl Streep’s ?? The Movie/Mini Best Actress goes be to either Lange or McDormand, Queen Latifah close behind.

    I’d personally vote for Huffman (who gave a strong performance), but McDormand has been the front-runner for a while, and rightfully so. I could see Huffman winning ~a la Laura Linney’s suprise (yet, still a great performance) win.

    I also wouldn’t immediately count out Lange either, but I don’t think she’ll win. The ‘Life on Mars’ sequence in the first episode is a good showcase for Lange.

    Mcdormand is NOT a lock. This catagory is so strong that 5 people could win. I predicted Gyllenhaal at the globes and I’m predicting her here. Frances is so low key in the series that it might turn off emmy voters. Where as Gyllenhaal, Queen or even Lange have dynamite scenes that screams emmy bait. I think if Frances wins its base off of name recognition. But that’s just me.
