Emmy Predictions: Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series
1. Christine Baranski "The Big Bang Theory"
2. Kathryn Joosten "Desperate Housewives"
3. Kristin Chenoweth "Glee"
4. Tina Fey "SNL"
5. Betty White "SNL"
6. Elaine Stritch "30 Rock"
7. Jane Lynch "Two and a Half Men"
Will Win/Should Win: Betty White "SNL"
Commentary: If you have gone without television or internet for the last year, and simply looked at these names, you would think that this is a tough, hell, almost impossible race to call. Tina Fey, Kathryn Joosten, and Elaine Stritch have already won this category for these same characters, so they are def. in the running. Kristin Chenoweth sang and acted superbly in Glee, and won an Emmy last year, meaning that she is popular among the Academy. Christine Baranski is a household name, and could easily see her name pop up. Jane Lynch has had a hell of year, but her best shot comes in the supporting actress category. However, none of the previously mentioned six, have anything on the great Betty White. Not only was she awesome on Saturday Night Live, but has become the most talked about star in Hollywood, and even has a new sitcom out on TV Land called Hot in Cleveland. If she doesn't win, I think every pundit on record will have a conniption, and quit.
