    Last year, there were quite a few shockers on nominations morning, including that Best Drama Actress bid by Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) and two nods for Gaby Hoffmann (“Transparent,” “Girls”).

    Who is flying under the radar this year but could still land a nomination?

    I’m not predicting it but I could definitely see Hugh Bonneville happening. GoldDerby always underestimates Downton at the Emmys, largely I think due to people often putting an element of personal preference in their predictions, and so I really wouldn’t be surprised if he is actually far more in contention that many are thinking. The same goes for Dockery and Carmichael.

    Hopefully, Gillian Anderson is underestimated here and she can score a nom or two.

    Gina Rodriguez

    Yep, agree. With 3 open slots, I think she’s in.

    Mindy Kaling. She is being grossly underestimated.

    Whatch her get that Emmy nom for Hulu, and with that making Hulu the Netflix/Amazon of 2016.

    I have been trying to keep an open mind after Niecy Nash and my pummeling at the Oscars this year, but this thread threatens to test me. Mindy Kaling, what the fuck? Nobody watches that show anymore, hence why it was cancelled. It is not good anymore either. TCA and Critics’ Choice have moved on and for good reason. What is the path for her? “Hulu”? Then why not Michaela Watkins?

    I think The Leftovers gets at least a writing nom, that’s usually where the critical darlings that don’t get in anywhere else go.

    This is also gonna sound crazy but I think Eva Green has a better shot than we think. I’m not predicting her or anything, but I think she’s closer to the final 6 then we might realize. Her performance just keeps getting more acclaimed, and she does seem to have more buzz than she did last year. And the surprise series finale of the show captured a decent amount of attention right in the middle of emmy voting. Plus it had a big name guest star in the episode that would very possibly be Green’s submission, so if on the off chance they actually bothered to check it out it can only help her. I’ll be surprised if she gets in, but not as surprised as I might’ve been.

    1. Margo Martindale (“The Good Wife”)

    She’s a favorite of the industry and delivers a stellar performance (one of the highlights of season 7). If she is to get a nomination this year, it should be for “The Good Wife”, not “The Americans” in which her appearance is basically a cameo once again.

    2. Jessica Lange (“Horace and Pete”)

    An acting legend, three-time Emmy winner, she’s just won the Tony and her performance is brilliant. I’m not predicting it, but don’t be surprised if it happens come nomination day.

    3. Jane Fonda (“Grace and Frankie”)

    With three slots open the Academy will likely go for familiar names and Jane Fonda seems like the perfect choice. She’s a legend, had Oscar buzz for “Youth” and she has a very strong episode submission (not that it matters).

    4. Kristen Wiig (“The Spoils Before Dying”)

    She’s an Emmy favorite, she was nominated for the SAG award for this role and she has buzz because of the new “Ghostbusters” movie. I wouldn’t be surprised if she were nominated.

    5. Michelle Dockery (“Downton Abbey”)

    She’s a previous nominee in one of the Academy’s dearest shows, it’s their last season and she has a couple of great potential submissions. Never underestimate the power of a goodbye hug.
