2012 Emmy Nomination Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a TV Movie/Miniseries

2012 Nomination Predictions
1. Jessica Lange "American Horror Story"
2. Judy Davis "Page Eight"
3. Sarah Paulson "Game Change"
4. Mare Winningham "Hatfields & McCoys"
5. Gillian Anderson "Great Expectations"

Other Contenders - Frances Conroy "American Horror Story", Rosario Dawson "Five", Tammy Blanchard "Of Two Minds", Jean Malone "Hatfields & McCoys", Lara Pulver "Sherlock"
Commentary - Looks like it is a six person race for five spots. Of all the contenders, Jessica Lange is the name that stands out. She was so convincing and devilish in AHS, and such a well-liked actress among the Television Academy, that I honestly don't know if anyone can beat her. Beyond Lange, there are a few locks. Judy Davis was probably in the lead before AHS switched categories, but a nomination should be no trouble. It shouldn't be any trouble either for Sarah Paulson, who was a standout among the popular Game Change, which will probably rack up a lot of nods. Mare Winningham was nominated last year for Mildred Pierce, and I thought she was much better this time around in Hatfields & McCoys, so my guess is that she gets in once again. In the last slot, I would love to put Frances Conroy, but I wonder if Jessica Lange overshadowed her too much for both to get in. So instead I am going with Gillian Anderson who was a bright spot in Great Expectations.
