My predictions: 3/5, picking Collette and Linney over Vergara and White
Who’s missing: Toni Collette (The United States of Tara), Laura Linney (The Big C), Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), Lea Michele (Glee)
In this category we have our biggest shock – the omission of Laura Linney. It turns out she’s not the only semi-serious Showtime actress to be snubbed – last year’s nominee Toni Collette was as well – but, bizarrely, Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie) did still make it in. Joining the fray are three supporting actresses, Emmy winner Jane Lynch (Glee), Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), and – in a bit of a surprise - Betty White (Hot in Cleveland). Rounding out the list is defending three-year champion Tina Fey (30 Rock).
Who could win? I think Fey gets booted this year, but for who? I’d say Lynch but I think it’s going to be White.
