    Will they nominate only one of them, 2 of them, all three, or neither? discuss.

    What makes Taraji a strong contender? I know there are strong reviews and the ratings were awesome straight out of the gate, but that type of show usually end up falling by the wayside come award time. Kerry has hit a brick wall. Viola Davis is pulling through with all of the precursor shows. Viola is a lock. The other two are not.

    PoweR makes good points.

    I like Kerry Washington very much, more than what is considered the consensus here, but she is in real danger of missing out. The category is getting crowded and she was dropped at the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards after a single nomination. Despite the good ratings, it feels like “Scandal” has lost some buzz this season. And she didn’t do anything noteworthy until the midseason finale.

    “Empire” just premiered. Let’s see where it ends up at the end of the season (ratings, critics, creative aspects).

    It’s difficult for all three to get in because despite the differences (politics, law, hip-hop), all these shows are essentially soap operas.

    What Taraji P Henson has going for her is that not only is she an oscar nominated movie actor, her show is produced by an oscar winning movie director/writer. That could work in her favor at the emmys. Out of the 3 Davis is definitely the most respected actress, so she obviously has the best chance of getting in. I could imagine a scenario where all 3 get in, but in reality we’d probably be lucky to get 2. Which is a shame because I think they’re all better than Michelle Dockery who will probably get in again anyway.

    Can we please acknowledge how ridiculous it is that this is a real conversation that is had?  No one is sitting around saying “What are the Emmys going to do about Ruth Wilson, Claire Danes, and Julianna Margulies?”

    I wanted to use much stronger language because after all I’m ‘obnoxious dimwit’ but thank you for this post.

    Thank you. What’s the link this thread is making between these 3 actresses?

    They’re black. Viola Davis has built momentum from her last serious bout with award season. She is prime over the other two women and their white counterparts for coveted wins wherever she’s nominated—at least for this season.

    OH WOW, THEY’RE ALL BLACK?! No one else in this thread recognized that.  Thanks for the news flash, Tom Brokaw!

    The fact that anyone even takes the question “what are the Emmys going to do about these three black women” seriously and tries to cobble together an answer is just contributing further to the problem of the lack of diversity.

    Wait, why am I continuing to legitimize this thread by spoon-feeding?
