ⓘ Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie

The Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie is an award presented annually by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. It is given in honor of an actress who has delivered an outstanding performance in a leading role on a television limited series or television movie for the primetime network season.

The award was first presented at the 7th Primetime Emmy Awards on March 7, 1955, to Judith Anderson for her performance as Lady Macbeth on the Hallmark Hall of Fame episode "Macbeth". It has undergone several name changes, with the category split into two categories at the 25th Primetime Emmy Awards: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Special Program – Drama or Comedy; and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series. By the 31st Primetime Emmy Awards, the categories were merged into one, and has since undergone several name changes, leading to its current title.

Since its inception, the award has been given to 54 actresses. Michelle Williams is the current recipient of the award, for her portrayal of Gwen Verdon on Fosse/Verdon. Helen Mirren has won the most awards in this category, with four, and has received the most nominations for the award on ten occasions.
