We don’t mean to put too much pressure on you or anything, Ms. Washington, but after a whole year of one red carpet home-run after another — and just FYI: at the Emmys tonight, when you’re nominated for lead actress in a drama, we are fully expecting you to Turn. It. Out.

After watching this video of some of the actress’s greatest hits (as part of our package in which we named her Best Dressed of 2013) our anticipation level has really gone through the roof. Is she going to go surprisingly sheer, like she did at the Golden Globes? Flirty and fun, as at the Project Runway screening? Bold and bright, as seen at the CFDA awards? And the real question: Will she be in her favorite white pumps?

With only a few hours left to go before TV’s biggest night, we can’t shake the sneaking suspicion that she might go home with two wins — that golden statue and our pick for best dress of the evening. Are you excited to see what she wears? Any predictions?
