In the HBO biopic, the1988 Daytime Emmy champ (Ingenue, “As the World Turns”) portrayed 2008 VP nominee Sarah Palin.
She faces her biggest challenge from Nicole Kidman — who bested Moore for the Oscar in 2002 — who could contend for her role as war correspondent Martha Gellhorn in the paycaster’s telefilm “Hemingway and Gellhorn.”
Also forecast to be in the final field of six is Connie Britton who headlined the first season of “American Horror Story.” Due to the changing nature of this FX series, it was reclassified as a miniseries, shifting Britton and company into the movie/mini categories.
While none of our Experts or Editors favor their chances, several of our Users are predicting a win for two British Oscar champs who starred in installments of PBS Masterpiece — Rachel Weisz (“Page Eight“) and Emma Thompson (“The Song of Lunch“).
