Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 4/7, missing Chlumsky, Krakowski, and Lynch

Here we have an interesting result: since “Arrested Development” apparently didn’t go over well with voters, we have the four eligible nominees from last year - Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), and Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie) – and an interesting bit of nostalgia and one great surprise inclusion along with it. Jane Krakowski (30 Rock) and Jane Lynch (Glee) were both last nominated two years ago. It makes sense that Krakowski would be recognized for her show’s swan song, but Lynch just feels tacked on to the other six, considering that her show is well past its prime and earned just one other major nomination. I couldn’t be more excited about Anna Chlumsky (Veep), one of the best parts of her show whose comedic skills I thought would be too subtle for voters. Yay!

Who should win? Chlumsky
Who will win? Uncertain. Probably Bowen again.
