From June 13 to 24, 2024, voting took place for The 76th 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. Jodie Foster for HBO's True Detective: Night Country
  2. Juno Temple for FX's Fargo
  3. Brie Larson for AppleTV+'s Lessons in Chemistry
  4. Naomi Watts for FX's Feud: Capote vs. The Swans

  6. Emma Corrin for FX's A Murder at the End of the World

  7. Claire Danes and Zazie Beetz for Max's Full Circle
  8. Sandra Oh and Awkwafina for Hulu's Quiz Lady

Colorful oddities that still have an outside chance:

  3. Mandy Moore for Peacock's Dr. Death
  4. Ambika Mod for Netflix's One Day
