Claire Danes Homeland Emmys Emmy Awards Julianna Margulies TV news

At last year's Emmys, Claire Danes won Best Drama Actress for the first season of "Homeland." And our editors and users agree that she is all but certain to pick up a bookend this year. 

With all of our editors and more than 90% of our users predicting her to prevail again, she has leading odds of 9 to 5. 

In second place is 2011 champ Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife") with about 5% of users expecting her to win again. That gives her odds of 4 to 1. 

With the backing of a handful of users, Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey") has odds of 6 to 1.

Robin Wright is likely to reap a bid for the first season of "House of Cards" but has odds of only 16 to 1.

And perennial also-ran Elisabeth Moss ("Mad Men") also has odds of 16 to 1.
