Best Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie Emmys 2024 Predictions And Contenders

If some of the Drama and Comedy series acting categories are scrounging for legitimate nominees, the Limited Series and TV movie fields are effectively a bloodbath in comparison. At this point, there are just three actors likely to make the five and only five nominating field: Jodie Foster (“True Detective: Night Country”), Juno Temple (“Fargo”), and Brie Larson (“Lessons in Chemistry”).

Four months ago, Kate Winslet would have seemed like a lock for “The Regime.” Then the series came out to not only disappointing reviews but disappointing viewership. A two-time winner in this category, can Winslet earn her third nomination in the category? Ponder. To many, Sofia Vergara was the best part of Netflix’s smash “Griselda,” but was it prestige enough to crack this field? Maybe? The buzz for the repetitive “Feud: Capote vs. The Swans” faded quickly, despite a stellar performance from Naomi Watts. She’s got to have a shot, right? As for “Shogun,” the reboot has been a massive success for FX and Hulu, but can Anna Sawai pop with Emmy voters against a slew of Oscar winners and nominees? Speaking of…

That leaves us with a trio of legendary actresses who could arguably still make the five. Julianne Moore is hilarious and scheming in “Mary and George,” Nicole Kidman delivers once again for Prime Video’s “Expats,” and Annette Bening might just steal the show in Peacock’s hit “Apples Never Die.” Either of the three are in contention for a nom. Who gets into the Emmy club and who gets snubbed remains to be seen. [Posted May 2]
