Emmy Predictions 2018: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie

The Emmys are just 2 days a way and I have a lot of predicting to do!

Crystal Ball

Right now we are going to visit the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie.

The noms:

  • Sarah Paulson as Ally Mayfair-Richards, American Horror Story: Cult
  • Michelle Dockery as Alice Fletcher, Godless
  • Edie Falco as Leslie Abramson, Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders
  • Regina King as Latrice Butler, Seven Seconds
  • Jessica Biel as Cora Tannetti, The Sinner
  • Laura Dern as Jennifer, The Tale

Here is the good news. I have actually seen TWO of these shows. American Horror Story and Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders. So I’m really, really informed! I loved both of these shows, but I especially loved Falco’s wig.


While Biel was robbed for never winning an Emmy for her role in Seventh Heaven, it would be a sin for her to win this year. Likewise, it was a godless world we lived in when Dockery lost the Emmy three consecutive years for her portrayal as bitchy sister Lady Mary in Downtown Abbey. It takes me all of seven seconds to tell you how much I adore Regina King, but I did not watch Seven Seconds. And I’ll you a tale – I’ve loved Laura Dern since I saw her in Jurassic Park. Yes, I am very good at puns.

All joking aside, I loved Falco’s performance as tough as nails lawyer Leslie Abramson, who famously defended the infamous Menendez brothers during their murder trial. She brought humanity to people who many say don’t deserve humanity.

In conclusion:

Who I Want to Win: Edie Falco

Who Will Win: Sarah Paulson
