Emmy Nomination Preview 2013 - Supporting Actress in a Movie or Miniseries

        Friday, June 28 - Earlier this month, the ballots were released for the contenders for the upcoming 2013 Emmy Awards. With nominations being announced on the morning of July 18, I'm going through all of the major categories and analyzing which performers are most likely to make the nomination list.


Nominees for the 2012 Emmy Awards
        Frances Conroy, American Horror Story
        Judy Davis, Page Eight
        Jessica Lange, American Horror Story
        Sarah Paulson, Game Change
        Mare Winningham, Hatfields & McCoys

        Sarah Paulson is a lock to return to this category again - except now for American Horror Story: Asylum. Her AHS co-star Lily Rabe also feels like a lock here. Frances Conroy is also eligible to return but her chances are slimmer because her role was very small. So, the final three spots will be a battle between the big names: Holly Hunter, Ellen Burstyn, Alfre Woodard and Phylicia Rashad. Roma Downey also has a chance to sneak in especially if the voters want to honor The Bible in some way. With all that said, here is how I think the chips will fall this year.

NOTE: These rankings are how likely I think people are to be nominated NOT who is likely to win in September.

* = My Top 5 performers - the ones I would vote for if I had a ballot.
