Can “Killing Eve’s” Jodie Comer win back to back? Can Laura Linney win on a second nomination for “Ozark?” Can Jennifer Aniston duplicate her SAG Awards win for “The Morning Show?” Or will Olivia Colman become the second actress to win for portraying Queen Elizabeth II on “The Crown?” And we’re assuming those actors even make it into the ring. The Emmys Lead Actress in a Drama Series category is quite competitive this year with former nominees such as Sandra Oh, Evan Rachel Wood and Mandy Moore as well as former Emmy winners such as Nicole Kidman and three-time winner Claire Danes hoping to stay in the game. And that doesn’t even include potential newcomers to the race such as Sarah Snook, Zendaya and Rebecca Hall, among others. Yeesh. [Posted April 1]
