  • Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison on Homeland

  • Taraji P Henson as Loretha “Cookie” Lyon on Empire
  • Tatiana Maslany as Various on Orphan Black
  • Elisabeth Moss as Peggy Olson on Mad Men
  • Robin Wright as First Lady Claire Underwood on House of Cards

Sean: “I’m surprised this category didn’t expand to 7 or more nominees considering the number of worthy contenders; this race has been one of the most interesting to watch in recent years because the entire list of nominees could be completely thrown out and replaced with 6 other actresses and still feel “right.” The one actress I was really hoping would get a nomination was Eva Green, whose hypnotic, masterful turn as Vanessa Ives in Penny Dreadful is a career highlight. That said, I’m very pleased with the nominees we do have, especially Tatiana Maslany; while it’s highly unlikely that she’ll win, it’s great that she’s finally noticed by the Academy for her excellent work.”

Kim: “Thanks Academy for finally recognizing Maslany. I think the lack of Eva Green stems from two things. One, what I see as the small sphere of influence that Penny Dreadful has in our TV universe. It seems that the more popular, but less acclaimed, Season 1 had the better chances. Which is sad really, because Penny Dreadful has been on a roll lately. Two, Academy voters normally look for highlights or the one scene that is pure excellence. Thing is, Penny Dreadful doesn’t operate that way, especially Green’s sleek low-key performance. It’s enthralling yes, but not attention-grabbing.

Also, why no Caitriona Balfe for Outlander?”
