Posted on

With only one week left to vote for your Emmy-snubbed favorites, the 2015 EWwy Awards are about to come to a close. But the winners haven’t been chosen yet! You all have until Friday to cast your votes, and with that in mind, we have a poll update on those drama categories. (For info on how your comedy favorites are doing, check out last week’s poll update.)

  • Best Drama Series: Currently, Outlander is in the lead, which leaves the biggest battle for the second place spot: Will it be Sons of Anarchy or How to Get Away with Murder? Or will someone get a last minute surge and somehow beat out Jamie and Claire?
  • Best Actress, Drama: Once again, Outlander is in the lead with Caitriona Balfe, but the battle for second place is extremely close between Sons of Anarchy‘s Katey Sagal, Scandal‘s Kerry Washington, and The Fall‘s Gillian Anderson. In fact, second place could also go to The Good Wife‘s Julianna Margulies or The Affair‘s Ruth Wilson depending on how these last few days go.
  • Best Actor, Drama: Will it be The Walking Dead‘s Andrew Lincoln or Outlander‘s Sam Heughan? Neither one of them appears to be going down without a fight.
  • Best Supporting Actor, Drama: Outlander‘s Tobias Menzies has a strong lead, but second place is an extremely close battle: Separated by less than 250 votes is Orphan Black‘s Jordan Gavaris and Daredevil‘s Vincent D’Onofrio. 
  • Best Supporting Actress, Drama: As of right now, this could go one of four ways: The Walking Dead‘s Melissa McBride, Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams, Game of Thrones‘ Sophie Turner, or Orange Is the New Black‘s Lorraine Toussaint. You have one week to decide.

You can keep voting for your comedy and drama favorites until polls close on August 7 — with the winners announced Aug. 11.
