    obviously, the two front runners in the drama actress category are Claire Danes and Viola Davis, however, I believe Claire Danes should not be counted out. although she did not win the last two years, she has won two years before. I personally believe her episode submission was the best by far. Also she is the one constant in the nominations for Homeland. Many believe season 5 to be homelands best season since season 2, and the Emmys obviously like Claire Danes. Even though the voters most likely won’t watch the submissions, hers was in my opinion the best. It is also obvious that the voters love Claire Danes, so I find it possible that her loyal group of voters will continue to vote for her and the votes between Davis and Wright could split, allowing her to win. First of all, Wright has never won, and in a year against last years winner, I simply do not see her winning. Second, I would not be surprised if voters lost interest in HTGAWM and stopped voting for Viola as most people believe the first season was better than the second. As for the other nominees, Kerri Russell is a first time nominee in her fourth season and couldn’t Sven get a nom for felicity, so how could she win? Tatiana Maslany is also not as popular as the other nominees, and if she will ever win, it will probably be next year for the final season. Taraji P Henson is on an unpopular Emmy show. I genuinely believe Danes has a chance of winning due to the fact that the voters obviously watch the show. They dropped it in its worst season and nominated it thereafter. Even though the noms have gone down, she gave her best performance in my opinion, and if the voters saw it, how unlikely is it that they would vote for her. Does anyone else think see will win? Why wouldn’t she win if you saw my evidence?

    The show has fallen off with the acting branch, who are voting for Danes. They couldn’t even get Miranda Otto in this year who was considered the standout of what was perceived as a pretty uneven season

    Buddy, we have a thread for this kind of discussion. This board would be a mess if everyone decided to open a “could X win” thread for every nominated person or show.

    But to answer your question, I don’t see it happening, but she has a tape that is pretty impressive, and the show is a Series nominee after all.

    She should win. She’s the best. But Homeland isn’t as thrilling as it used to be.

    Since when is Danes a co-front-runner? I think it’s completely possible she finishes dead last in the category.

    She could win for the final season if Homeland continues to get Drama Series nod. Don’t see it happening this year.

    She is obviously the most popular of the nominees among the acting branch. She’s been getting nominations since she was 16 and has the most wins among the nominees. She will definitely finish in top 3 and obviously Taraji will finish last in this category.

    “obviously the most popular” / lost popularity vote last year

    She has her haters as well, most of whom probably ranked her last. This year is the real popularity vote so we’ll see if she is, still, I insist she is in the top 3.

    This doesn’t make much of a sense. It’s not ”Who We Love Most” Award. Well, in a certain way it is, and that plays a factor, too. But its mostly about the characters they play in shows that have been seen and, of course, momentum.

    You also can’t predict their ”popularity” based on the Emmys they have won, since up until last year the winners weren’t determined by popularity vote. Was Jim Parsons four times more popular than William H.Macy, Don Cheadle and Ricky Gervais?

    Emmys might be the most horrible, prone to name-checking, lazy industry award organization there is, but let’s not go overboard with that.

    Mulitple Emmy winners Jessica Lange, Edie Falco, Alan Alda were snubbed for a critically acclaimed show (all of whom were nominees themselves last year). Sissy Spacek couldn’t breakthrough for a show that is clearly among the most watched shows among acting branch for two consecutive years. There is no one in the industry who haven’t worked with Paul Giamatti, yet, he can’t get nominated for a popular and somewhat an acclaimed project because of some creepy looking dude from a show on USA.

    As for Danes, I’d say she’s the third most deserving actress in her group.(Don’t get the hype for Wright’s sleepy performance.) But I never gathered myself to particulary root for her because the character she plays is, so out of the world, unlikable without any redeeming sypmhatetic qualities whatsoever and I guess, she must get some credit for that. And that comes from somone who thought the people who hated Skyler White till the bitter end were ridicolous and never actually got the character.

    But at least she’s not someone you can blame for doing nothing but read her lines with a pretty face.

    Everyone is desperately seeking an alternative to Viola Davis. Two consecutive wins for her doesn’t seem like science fiction to me.

    Claire Danes in Homeland was a turning point for the Lead Drama Actress category. I never heard so much about that category until Danes showed up in Homeland. In my opinion, Danes is the reason why the lead actress category is so competitive nowadays. Its possible they might want to award her 4 times to tie for the record.
