    I would predict Sophie Okonedo if visibility were not an issue, but I just moved her down to fourth, so take that as my answer to the should-the-Emmy-change-their-voting-process thread.  (See also how Luca and I prefer different guest actresses from The Handmaid’s Tale, yet we are both predicting a third one.)  Luca points to Bette Midler; I liken her to Cameron Britton as someone who was singled out from their show for their performance, with a strong campaign to boot.  (Her people emailed me for months; Kevin ended up interviewing her.)  It is baity material with no vote-splitting and I think that her position in the industry over the years would help her.  She is someone who has gotten nominated for an Oscar here or won a Tony there or is even up for another BAFTA right now, but she is not at all a household name.

    I think Sophie Okonedo would be easily winning this category under the tape system but with how long ago Ratched aired and how little people seemed to care about it (see Cynthia Nixon missing), I doubt she pulls one out here.

    I don’t agree entirely with the Mckenna Grace/Zendaya comparison but just like Zendaya, this is a very against type role for someone who was until now essentially just known as a child actor. Add on the fact that The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 has just aired very recently (which is something partly reflected in its acting nominations tally) and I anticipate is something that voters will still be catching up on in the weeks and months ahead. I think if Grace loses it will be because voters have defaulted back to Bledel or they haven’t really cared so much for any drama series this season other than The Crown.

    It would be iconic Perry Mason having the same amount of acting Emmy wins as Game of Thrones.

    Honestly thank goodness The Crown wasn’t one of those shows that got delayed. It would have been so cringe had The Mandalorian won 💀💀💀.

    I would not consider winning for that cameo iconic. Love, love, love her, but please not.

    Let’s get real, Sophie Okonedo outsold both of them.

    I prefer Grace and Okonedo’s performances this year but I honestly won’t mind if Claire wins. Her win for The Crown season 2 should have been her second after Wolf Hall.

    She was also really good in her cameo (although I wouldn’t have nominated her).

    I would agree if Claire Foy hadn’t already won for this role and people were figuring it out her amazing work now and this award would be for her work on the first 2 seasons, kinda like Charles Dance could win for basically season 3.

    But since she’s already won, let’s move on darling.

    Yeah, but it’s not like Cherry Jones’s win is supposed to be the example, right?

    To be honest I hated her win for a while but I see Cherry Jones’ win for The Handmaid’s Tale in a much more positive light after that year’s frontrunner showed her true colours last month.

    I’ll just pretend her Handmaid’s win was the first of two for this moment.

    Didn’t Margo Martindale win two years in a row for not doing sh*t?
