    My heart goes with Kathy Bates (Too bad her character’s arc in the last episodes was pure crap) but my mind says it’s going to be Julia Roberts.

    Watch out spoilers of “Coven”, but what episode did Bates send? Bitchcraft? Head? Obama on TV? She has a treasure of a character! I still can’t believe the Golden Globes did not nominate her.

    Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Ellen Burstyn and Frances Conroy are all very over-the-top with their performances and there’s no clear frontrunner among them. I can see people being either turned off by it or loving it. Too polarizing. I think Allison Tolman could win just because her performance is different from the others and it has a lot of buzz to begin with, but I’m afraid she might be hurt by the new ratings system. Her acting style is very subtle and I can see some voters just not being impressed compared to the others.

    That’s why I think Julia Roberts is gonna take this because she has those quieter moments but then she has that big, rapturous speech at the end. And it’s at the end of the movie so it leaves impact. I’m not sure how voters feel about her as a person and her ability to disappear into this role, but I think they would want her up on that stage.

    They don’t send in episodes they send the whole mini series. But as they said in the slugfest, if voters are lazy and watch a few episodes of each, Bates is on fire those first episodes and Bassett has some great moments.

    This category is wide open, but I’m going with Tolman.

    I think Julia has this one, which is fine, but I’m fully rooting for Allison Tolman instead.

    I would looooove for Frances Conroy to finally snag an Emmy.  However, her best episodes are towards the end of the season.

    Who should win:
    I´ve been all about Bassett from the start, but ever since I fell in love with Fargo and with Tollman´s Molly, I really want her to win.

    Who will win:
    There is no other way to go other than Roberts vs. Tollman. I think we will know the answer the moment wee see who starts getting more awards on emmy night: Fargo or The Normal Heart. If one starts getting directing, writing and/or lead actor, that´s the show that´ll win series and supporting actress, as that´ll be the place they are fully supporting. I think Tollman will surprise, but its more obious/expected to think Roberts

    Personally, I’d pick Conroy…she was my MVP of “Coven.”

    However, Bates has that amazing first episode, especially the first scene which is all about her (spreading the blood on her face). If voters don’t watch the full series, she has impact early on in “Coven” that could secure a win. The big scene Julia Roberts has isn’t til the end of “The Normal Heart,” but it’s still an amazing scene.

    After watching the slugfest I’m definitely a bit worried about the fact that Tolman doesn’t really feature prominently in the very beginning of the series. I agree that it makes no sense for actor’s not to submit individual episodes. I think the one saving grace is that Fargo has a lot of heat going into the ceremonies (in terms of nominations at least) which may compel voters who haven’t watched the series already to check out the entire thing. Watch Burstyn win again….

    Anyone but Roberts, who was awful, or Burstyn who was name-checked again.

    The 3 Coven ladies were great, as was Tollman. Any of these 4 would be deserving. I don’t have a preference.

    The minute Roberts gave that speech in the classroom, this race was over.

    Right?

    I don’t see how Julia Roberts can lose this. And speaking of Roberts – like Annette Bening and Julianne Moore when they were nominated – I’m sure she’ll be the one to present Comedy Series and/or Drama Series. 

    If you think about it, this is one of the greatest categories of the night. If only Burstyn was out and Audra McDonald was in, the category would have six perfect contenders. Yeah, The Sound of Music was painful to sit through, but there’s nothing painful about McDonald or her performance. Ellen Burstyn was name-checked – again (Man, do the Emmys love this woman or what?) – and could have done this role in her sleep. Of course, she won last year for the same kind of role.

    Speaking of Burstyn, her winning last year is proof of why Bassett, Conroy, and Tolman won’t win this year. When Burstyn won for Political Animals we all sort of realized that the only reason she beat Sarah Paulson was becauae Paulson didn’t shine in AHS: Coven until the second half. The same can be said for those contenders. 

    That leaves it to Roberts versus Bates. Snob appeal will push Roberts to victory. Outside of Burstyn (again, who I love), any of the other five would make great winners.

    I just realized that we have 3 Oscar winners (Burstyn, Bates and Roberts) and an Oscar nominee (Bassett) in this category.

    Also, Bates defeated Roberts in 1991 for Misery against Pretty Woman.

    I am really excited for this category as well, for the first time in a couple years.  There appears to be 6 legitimate contenders here, with many of them being big name actors as well (which always makes it more fun).

    My initial reaction was to go with Julia Roberts.  Any time you have an A-list actor giving a baity role (on a highly publicized HBO production no less) my bet is to go with them.  Although that theory kind of goes out the window when you have three/four other A-list actors giving baity/campy awards worthy performances as well.

    I almost feel bad for Tolman that her first break-out Emmy nominated role happens to be against three previous oscar winners, another previous oscar nominee, and a multiple Emmy nominee as well.  This is almost like a David v. Goliath situation, only she is against 5 Goliaths this year.  That would be kind of neat to see her beat the odds and win this year.

    I am kind of rooting for Frances Conroy to win, although I would be happy if Bassett, Bates, Roberts, or Tolman win.
