But would you be able to recognize these lovely ladies once they’ve put away the costumes and donned their everyday looks?
Click through the photos below for a breakdown of the sometimes dramatic differences between each of our nominees’ on-screen and off-screen appearances!
When playing her time-traveling counterpart Claire Fraser on Outlander, Catriona Balfe wears 18th century corsets and wide, flowing skirts to look the part. However, in real life, the former model tends to go for a sleeker, more modern look, and we can’t really blame her. Even someone as fit as her must want to set her corsets on fire at the end of the day.
You might not recognize the Mother of Dragons if you met her on the street. Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, couldn’t look more different when out of her Game of Thrones costume. Clarke trades in the white braids for her natural brunette curls and the elegant dragon gowns for adorable sundresses whenever she steps out of character.
Ginnifer Goodwin spends half her time on Once Upon a Time running around the Enchanted Forest as Snow White, a fierce and loyal princess. The biggest change you’ll notice here is the way Goodwin’s cropped pixie cut gets replaced by long black princess hair in all of her fairy-tale flashbacks.
If this were any other season, we’d say Jennifer Morrison and her Once Upon a Time character, Emma Swan, are practically identical. This year though, Morrison has traded in Emma’s casual look for the Dark Swan’s menacing and magical beauty. Talk about your transformations!
Lady Gaga is the one nominee whose off-screen look could have put her on-screen one to shame. Her American Horror Story character, Countess Elizabeth, has a refined and elegant wardrobe — if you don’t count her deadly mechanical glove — which makes some of Lady Gaga’s past red carpet ensembles appear downright fantastical. Nowadays, however, it seems like Gaga is tapping into her inner-countess with dresses that are more classic than they are crazy.
