Emmy Predictions 2011: Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series

In anticipation of the upcoming 63rd Annual EMMY Awards (Airing Sunday September 18th at 8PM on FOX, CTV in Canada) theTVaddict.com is proud [or not-so-proud depending on how things turn out] to once again present our GUARANTEED EMMY WINNERS 2011*

NOMINEES: Kathy Bates (HARRY’S LAW), Connie Britton (FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS), Mireille Enos (THE KILLING), Mariska Hargitay (LAW & ORDER: SVU), Julianna Margulies (THE GOOD WIFE), Elisabeth Moss (MAD MEN)

Epic isn’t just the name of one of the many troubled teens Tami Taylor deftly helped get back on the right track throughout the fifth and final season of FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, it also just so happens to be the perfect descriptor of Connie Britton’s performance as she beautifully balances her duties as wife, mother and the world’s greatest guidance counsellor. We’re just sayin’ 

WILL WIN: Julianna Margulies, THE GOOD WIFE
In an Award Show overflowing with praise for Cable aces, look to the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences to reserve one of its highest profile pieces of hardware for Network royalty Julianna Marguilies. Good wife, great show.

SNUBBED: The Stars of Television!
Quick, what do the likes of FRINGE’s Anna Torv, BONES’ Emily Deschanel and CASTLE’s Stana Katic have in common? Well, aside from having that whole stunningly beautiful thing down pat, each of these lovely leading ladies’ poignant performances continue to be overlooked based entirely on the procedural-esque (or in the case of FRINGE, science fiction based) nature of their shows.

*theTVaddict.com does not guarantee his “winning picks.” Do not, I repeat, Do not bet the house, kids or family pet on them!

    I wish Elisabeth Moss wins..This was her best season yet on Mad Men and the suitcase was a masterpiece of acting and writing combined.
    But my bet is also  Julianna

  • Katrine Larsson

    Kathy Bates should win, she is the best actress!

  • Ace

    Exactly what I was going to say.  Based on The Suitcase alone, Elisabeth Moss deserves it this year.  I also agree that Anna Torv was snubbed.  She played at least 3 characters this year!

  • Jessica Monroe

    I will second that! Moss is fantastic!
