Emmy Predictions 2022 - Who Will Likely Be Nominated for Lead Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie?

From June 16-27, 2022, voting took place for The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards. As such, it's fun to look at which actors and shows have the best chances of actually being nominated this year. So, these are my predictions for which performers will be nominated for Lead Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.

Performers most likely to be nominated:
  1. Amanda Seyfried for Hulu's The Dropout
  2. Margaret Qualley for Netflix's Maid
  3. Julia Garner for Netflix's Inventing Anna
  4. Lily James for Hulu's Pam & Tommy
  5. Toni Collette for HBO Max's The Staircase
Serious threats who could break through:

  7. Claire Danes for AppleTV+'s The Essex Serpent
  8. Beanie Feldstein and Sarah Paulson for FX's Impeachment: American Crime Story
  9. Elle Fanning for Hulu's The Girl From Plainville
Some considerable long-shots:

  2. Renée Zellweger for NBC's The Thing About Pam
  3. Isabel May for Paramount+'s 1883
  4. Julianne Moore for AppleTV+'s Lisey's Story

  10. Jennifer Aniston, Kathryn Hahn, Allison Tolman and Gabrielle Union for ABC's Live in Front of a Studio Audience: The Facts of Life & Diff'rent Strokes
Colorful oddities who still have an outside chance:
  1. Jane Levy for Roku's Zoey's Extraordinary Christmas
  2. Emmy Rossum for Peacock's Angelyne
  3. Rosario Dawson for HBO Max's DMZ
  4. Kristen Bell for Netflix's The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window
