Here's our take on the best TV movie/miniseries actress category.

american horror story: Coven

Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions through August 25th, when the winners will be announced. 

Kristen Wiig! The "Bridesmaids" and "SNL" veteran -- who's been nominated seven times now without a win -- snuck into a category heavy on the drama. Whether or not she could sneak out with her first trophy may be a bit more difficult considering the Academy's preference for drama over comedy. Plus, Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson were quite the force together on "American Horror Story: Coven," and Minnie Driver reached some dark depths as the mother of a stillborn child in "Return to Zero." Veteran thespian Cicely Tyson remains a top contender as well -- this being her 10th nomination, she'll look to add a third Emmy to her mantle come August.

Below are predictions for best TV movie/miniseries actress from both Indiewire Awards Editor Peter Knegt and Assistant TV Editor Ben Travers. Check out predictions in all the categories here.

The nominees:
Helena Bonham Carter, "Burton and Taylor"
Minnie Driver, "Return to Zero"
Jessica Lange, "American Horror Story: Coven"
Sarah Paulson, "American Horror Story: Coven"
Cicely Tyson, "The Trip to Bountiful"
Kristen Wiig, "Spoils of Babylon"

Ben's predictions:
Will win: Cicely Tyson, "The Trip to Bountiful"
Could win: Sarah Paulson, "American Horror Story: Coven"
Should win: Kristen Wiig, "Spoils of Babylon"
