  • American Crime
  • American Horror Story: Freak Show
  • The Honorable Woman
  • Olive Kitteridge

Sean: Olive Kitteridge has this in the bag. It was one of the most critically lauded shows in any genre in the last television season and has enough support from HBO to guarantee the win.”

Should Win: Olive Kitteridge

Will Win: Olive Kitteridge

Kim: Olive Kitteridge. There is no other.”

Should Win: Olive Kitteridge

Will Win: Olive Kitteridge

 

Lead Actor

Lead Actor

  • Adrien Brody as Harry Houdini on Houdini
  • Ricky Gervais as Derek Noakes on Derek the Special
  • Timothy Hutton as Russ Skokie on American Crime
  • Richard Jenkins as Henry Kitteridge on Olive Kitteridge
  • David Oyelowo as Peter Snowden on Nightingale
  • Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell on Wolf Hall

Sean: “David Oyelowo is the only actor in Nightingale and delivers a stunning performance; the TV movie is otherwise pedestrian without him. However, Richard Jenkins easily matched Frances McDormand in Olive Kitteridge and provided a strong contrast for her to play against.”

Should Win: Richard Jenkins

Will Win: David Oyelowo

Kim: “David Oyelowo was indeed fantastic in Nightingale but Richard Jenkins going toe-to-toe with McDormand in Olive Kitteridge really brought out some of his best work, even as one of the most consistent understated actors working today.”

Should Win: Richard Jenkins

Will Win: Richard Jenkins

 

 

Lead Actress

Movie Lead Actress HBO

  • Maggie Gyllenhaal as Nessa Stein on The Honorable Woman
  • Felicity Huffman as Barb Hanlon on American Crime
  • Jessica Lange as Elsa Mars on American Horror Story: Freak Show
  • Queen Latifah as Bessie Smith on Bessie
  • Frances McDormand as Oliver Kitteridge on Olive Kitteridge
  • Emma Thompson as Mrs. Lovett on Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street – Live from Lincoln Center

Sean: “I’ve previously joked that Olive Kitteridge was engineered to get Frances McDormand an Emmy and it very likely will succeed in doing so. As the acerbic and frequently unlikable titular character, McDormand showed more depth and subtlety than her co-nominees, as well as delivering her best work since Almost Famous.”

Should Win: Frances McDormand

Will Win: Frances McDormand

Kim: “Maggie Gyllenhaal was a little compelling in The Honorable Woman but it really seems like Frances McDormand took this role to sweep an entire year’s worth of trophy gold.”

Should Win: Frances McDormand

Will Win: Frances McDormand
