2015 Emmy Predictions – Best Actress (TV Movie or Mini-Series)

American-Horror-Story-Freak-Show-Elsa-Mars1-850x560FINAL EMMY PREDICTIONS: This race is pretty cutthroat this time around.  Frances McDormand will surely gain the lion’s share of votes for her work in “Olive Kitteridge” while Maggie Gyllenhaal is formidable spoiler for her turn in “The Honorable Woman.”  Queen Latifah‘s upcoming performance in “Bessie” could easily start a streamroll through the summer.  Jessica Lange surprised many and won this prize last year for “American Horror Story: Coven” and she’ll likely be a default pick for “Freak Show.”  Frances O’Connor is simply stunning on “The Missing” and could be a dark horse.
