Another wow moment at the awards tonight, Kerry Washington did not win the Emmy for Lead Actress in a Drama and instead the trophy went to Claire Danes for a second year in a row for her role on Homeland. Another collective "huh" as Washington was, we all thought, the definite winner. The other nominees in the category were: 

Vera Farmiga, “Bates Motel”
Michelle Dockery, “Downton Abbey”
Robin Wright, “House of Cards”
Elizabeth Moss, “Mad Men”
Connie Britton, “Nashville”
Kerry Washington, “Scandal”
