Emmy Experts predict Jen.nifer Aniston (‘The Morning Show’) will win Best Drama Actress

Having trouble predicting who will win Best Drama Actress at the 2024 Emmy Awards? Let’s consult Gold Derby’s Emmy Experts! These

savvy pundits from major media outlets have chimed in with their first set of predictions, and they say the trophy will go to Jennifer

Aniston (“The Morning Show“). The other potential nominees at this early stage are Emma Stone (“The Curse”), Imelda Staunton (“The Crown”), Juliette Binoche (“The New Look”), Rosario Dawson (“Ahsoka”) and Carrie Coon (“The Gilded Age”) — but that could all change in the coming months.

As of this writing, four out of our nine Emmy Experts predict a victory for Aniston: Clayton Davis (Variety), Jazz Tangcay (Variety), Joyce Eng (Gold Derby) and Ray Richmond (Gold Derby). She plays journalist Alex Levy who, during Season 3 of Apple TV+‘s “The Morning Show,” begins a romantic relationship with tech billionaire Paul Marks (Jon Hamm). This would be Aniston’s ninth overall Emmy nomination, having won for “Friends” (2002).

Two of our Emmyologists — Christopher Rosen (Gold Derby) and Peter Travers (ABC) — instead believe Stone will prevail for “The Curse.” She takes on the role of Whitney Siegel, the host of an HGTV show about energy efficient homes, on Showtime’s quirky drama. While Stone has never been nominated at the Emmys, she does of course have two Best Actress Oscars to her name for “La La Land” (2016) and “Poor Things” (2023).
