EWwy Awards: Best Actress in a Drama?
There’s still plenty of time to vote in the EWwy Awards — EW.com’s fourth annual celebration of performers and series Emmy overlooked. To vote for the Best Actress In a Drama, head to our Facebook page.
With so much talent in the composite to your right, it’s crazy that none of these actresses made the Emmys cut instead of, say, Law & Order‘s Mariska Hargitay or Harry’s Law‘s Kathy Bates. You nominated plenty of deserving leading ladies; we reluctantly narrowed the field to six. Watch them below, then flip through all of this year’s EWwy nominees in our photo gallery.
Anna Torv, Fringe
Snubbed by Emmy again — this time playing two characters!
(Side note: How sexy/adorable is Pacey in that clip?!)
Emmy Rossum, Shameless
Rossum is utterly believable — and often hilarious — as scrappy older sibling/mother figure Fiona Gallagher.
Lauren Graham, Parenthood
Graham draws you so fully into Sarah Braverman’s motherly angst that you can’t decide whether to cry or slug something.
Katey Sagal, Sons of Anarchy
Only someone capable of showing great strength and vulnerability in the same moment could point a gun at a baby.
Lisa Edelstein, House
We bumped her up from the supporting category for Lisa’s seventh and final year on the show.
Chloe Sevigny, Big Love
The stubborn, buttoned-up Nicki was often the series’ comic relief — making her more somber, serious moments even more poignant.
