2012 Emmy Predictions: Actress in a Drama Series

Will Win - Claire Danes "Homeland"
Could Win - Kathy Bates "Harry's Law", Michelle Dockery "Downton Abbey", or Julianna Margulies "The Good Wife"
Should Win - Margulies
Commentary - It's not often that a show comes out that just pushes all the right buttons, and produces such a stellar female lead that her path to the Emmy gold is virtually clear. The last two that come to mind are Damages and The Good Wife, and if history repeats itself then my prediction should come true. There are some strong contenders including previous winners like the great Margulies. And some, like Kathy Bates and Michelle Dockery, both not the biggest contenders heading into nominations, submitted well-enough to be dark horses. But my guess is that with Dane's Emmy favorite status, along with her stellar episode for Homeland, that she might be unstoppable.

  1. I personally agree that Margulies always has the best performance, but Danes has got this one locked.
