EMMY WATCH 2008: Outstanding Supporting ACTRESS, Comedy
This is the first year where the SNL actors get put into the acting categories, versus the Individual Performance in a variety show category, and only one person managed to squeak in! Here are the Supporting Actress nominees:
Should Win: Well, I’m terribly partial to PUSHING DAISIES, so one of my votes goes to Cheno and her awesome Olive Snook. She’s perfect in this role. I have to cast my other votes (because you know me and my bad decision making abilities) go to Amy Poehler because I think it would be awesome if she won, and Jean Smart because she’s brilliant as Regina on SAMANTHA WHO?
Will Win: I think Vanessa Williams could take this. Holland Taylor or Jean Smart might be the spoilers.
Should Be Nominated: Everyone else might say Jenna Fischer (Pam from THE OFFICE, who I agree is great), but I don’t see how Angela Kinsey keeps going unnoticed. She’s hilarious and she truly is playing a character because she’s the sweetest person in real life. Judy Reyes from SCRUBS was snubbed, once again. And where is Elizabeth Perkins? Sure, WEEDS had a strange third season, but I still thought we’d see her name. Also, though EARL wasn’t so hot this season, Jaime Pressly still knocks it out of the park!
