Kelcie: I am almost positive Claire Danes will win for "Homeland," but I'm really rooting for Connie Britton in "Nashville." She is a powerhouse as Rayna James, a country-star mom with a dramatic past that just keeps following her. And she has an amazing voice.
Christian: Claire Danes will defend her Emmy title this year. Her portrayal of a bipolar CIA agent is pretty amazing and has already been recognized with numerous awards including a Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award.
Pat: I just assumed Claire Danes was up for "My So-Called Life," but I guess that's been off the air for a while. Let's go by looks, and give it to the always fetching Kerry Washington.
