Honestly Vera Farmiga is insane. How that woman delievered as the infamous Norma Bates, outstanding. She would be my pick.

Follwed by Danes and Washington, who both brilliantly work with emotional scenes and get me every single time.

As far as who SHOULD win, I'm torn between Robin Wright (the REAL Kelly Capwell) and Kerry Washington. However, I'm pretty sure Kerry will be the one who takes home the award.

Scandal was the watercooler show of last season.

I still can't get over the fact that Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), who adeptly portrayed 7 characters who had completely different personalities, was completely snubbed. These actresses are great and gave some great performances, but none of them even came close to touching what Maslany pulled off in Orphan Black.

She is such a good actress that a lot of scenes in the series featured only her playing multiple characters in the same room. She was acting against herself and did it effortlessly. She disappeared into those roles to the point that you had to keep reminding yourself they were being played by the same actress.

Her not being nominated makes this category a farce.

Claire Danes. Her portrayal of the smart FBI agent & simultaneous deranged mental-patient in love with her "target" is just brilliant.
