Emmys 2018: Lead Actress in a Drama Series — Our 7 Dream Nominees!

Emmys 2018

The 2018 Emmy contest for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series is so insanely heated that we’re playing fast and loose with the rules and expanding the field to seven Dream Nominees. And, in our defense, the Television Academy does occasionally allow for a seventh entry in the event of a tie. 

Yes, last year’s victor — Handmaid’s Tale Elisabeth Moss — once again finds herself among our fantasy picks, but our lineup features a healthy dose of fresh blood. Even some of the “old blood” qualifies as new (i.e. a heavily Emmy’d performer who failed to make our short list in 2017 is back in the running this year).

Check out the gallery above — or click here for direct access — to view our seven Dream Nominees, then tell us if our picks warrant a “Woot!,” a “Whaaaat?” or a crisp slap of rebuke!
