Nominated for: Her outstanding performance in a lead role in House of Cards.
Why we love her: Once we started watching House of Cards, we couldn't stop. That's in large part because of Wright's turn as half of the power-hungry Underwood couple. Along with the political drama and scandal, Wright serves up a hefty dose of on-point dressing. Forget power suits — as Claire Underwood, Wright is all about ultrachic, polished dresses and perfectly sleek eventwear, much like her offscreen style. We don't get to see Wright out and about too much, but when we do, she's got a cool collection of sophisticated dresses that show off her killer bod, like this black sheath she wore to an event in Washington this May.
