Emmy Predictions: Best Actress in a Drama Series

The Nominees:
1. Kyra Sedgwick "The Closer"
2. Glenn Close "Damages"
3. Connie Britton "Friday Night Lights"
4. Julianna Margulies "The Good Wife"
5. Mariska Hargitay "Law & Order: SVU"
6. Januray Jones "Mad Men"

Should Win: Connie Britton "Friday Night Lights"

Will Win: Julianna Margulies "The Good Wife"

Commentary: Connie Britton deserves so much credit for her work on FNL, but her episode submission this year put the nail in the coffin, hell i'm just happy she got nominated. Mariska Hargitay is good, but her show has declined and quality, and really she is just filling space. I was thrilled with the January Jones nods, but I feel that she lacks the starpower of her fellow nominees, and should just be happy for a nomination. Then come the big three. Glenn Close could easily win her third straight Emmy, but her episode was weak, and she has much stiffer competition that she has had in the past. Kyra Sedgwick could finally win for her incredible episode submission, and I think that she is a dark horse who could pull off an upset pretty easily. But I stuck with the majority of pundits and went with the consensus pick of the wonderful Julianna Margulies. Especially with all the support the show as a whole got, this seems like the perfect conselation prize.
