A black actress has never won this category in the Emmy Awards’ 65 year history. Washington will face competition from fellow nominees Connie Britton of “Nashville,” Claire Danes of “Homeland,” “Downton Abbey” star Michelle Dockery, Vera Farmiga of “Bates Motel” and Robin Wright in the Netflix series “House of Cards.”

Don Cheadle, star of Showtime’s “House of Lies,” earned his second consecutive Lead Actor in a Comedy nomination and 6th Emmy nod overall. He’ll battle Alec Baldwin of “30 Rock,” Jason Bateman of “Arrested Development,” “Louie” star Louis C.K., Matt LeBlanc of “Episodes” and Jim Parsons of “The Big Bang Theory.”

Alfre Woodard of the Lifetime Original Movie “Steel Magnolias” is a nominee for Best Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie, while Paris Barclay nabbed a directing nomination for “Glee’s” 13th episode of season four, titled “Diva.”
