The lawyers, the CIA officer, the earl’s daughter, the litigator, or the copywriter? Cast your vote now!

The 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards are just 11 days away, and television’s finest females won’t just show up looking their best — they’ll also be bringing their A-game. Today, HollywoodLife.com wants to know which leading lady YOU think deserves top honors.

Here are the nominees:

Kathy Bates as Harriet “Harry” Korn on NBC’s Harry’s Law
Glenn Close as Patricia “Patty” Hewes on DirecTV’s Damages
Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison on Showtime’s Homeland
Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley on PBS’ Downton Abbey
Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick on CBS’ The Good Wife
Elisabeth Moss as Margaret “Peggy” Olson on AMC’s Mad Men

While we could totally see the gold going to Claire, who received rave reviews for her work on Homeland, the HollywoodLife.com staff loves Downton Abbey too much to not give our vote to Michelle. The show’s second season wasn’t as well received as the first — many people complained about the story lines being too war-centric — but Michelle never wavered in her performance. With every glance, every dramatic gesture, every “pa-PA,” Michelle was nothing short of captivating.

Which actress gets your vote?
