The Curious Case of Caitriona Balfe

Today is the last day of Emmy voting. Campaigns have been in full swing with all the usual players being talked about: Claire Danes, Robin Wright, Julianna Marguiles. Some of the newer shows like "How to Get Away With Murder" are also putting up front runners like Viola Davis. In the mix as well? Outlander. Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies are both garnering a lot of attention and for good reason. Both turned in Emmy worthy performances especially in the final two episodes of Outlander's first season. So where does Outlander's leading lady, Caitriona Balfe, fall?

As of press time, The Hollywood Reporter has Ms. Balfe as a "major threat" to get an Emmy nomination. This is one step below being a front runner for the nom. Before the second half of season one aired it seemed we were hearing non-stop buzz about an Emmy nomination for Ms. Balfe. Maybe it's just our imagination, but in recent weeks that talk seems to have been eclipsed by talk of Mr. Heughan and Mr. Menzies as potential nominees. Both men are more than deserving, but today we want to focus on Ms. Balfe.

To overlook her for an Emmy nomination now would be to ignore 16 episodes worth of stellar work. In fact, her entire body of work on this show is so good it's tough to pick one moment here or there that particularly stands out (though they do exist). In each episode she is inspiring and well worth watching.

That is why we are presenting, for your Emmy consideration, Caitriona Balfe's Top 5 Episodes from this season of Outlander. Tell us if you think we missed an episode in the comments!

  1. I agree with your picks. I don't get why she/Starz/her people didn't campaign more. I am sad but it looks like she will be lost in the shuffle because the post-finale press was 95% Sam. She disappeared and had zero media presence during peak campaign period :(.
