Look for some new faces in the drama acting categories at the Emmy nominations

LEAD ACTRESS DRAMA

Elisabeth Moss, “The Handmaid’s Tale”

Claire Foy, “The Crown”

Keri Russell, “The Americans”

Viola Davis, “How to Get Away With Murder”

Robin Wright, “House of Cards”

Evan Rachel Wood, “Westworld”

Prime contenders: Christine Baranski, “The Good Fight”; Claire Danes, “Homeland”; Mandy Moore, “This Is Us”; Carrie Coon, “The Leftovers”; Taraji P. Henson, “Empire”; Rutina Wesley, “Queen Sugar”

Analysis: Russell, Davis and Wright — all nominated last year — should return, and you can’t completely discount the chances of Danes or Henson repeating too, as both women have strong followings. And Baranski has 15 Emmy nominations, including six for playing the Diane Lockhart role that she’s reprising on “The Good Fight.” She can’t be taken lightly.
