Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

The Nominees:

1. Sharon Gless "Burn Notice"
2. Rose Byrne "Damages"
3. Christine Baranski "The Good Wife"
4. Archie Panjabi "The Good Wife"
5. Christina Hendricks "Mad Men"
6. Elisabeth Moss "Mad Men"

Should Win: Christina Hendricks "Mad Men"

Will Win: Sharon Gless "Burn Notice"

Commentary: While they finally nominated Christina Hendricks, but I think that vote splitting will occur with the great Elisabeth Moss meaning neither gets the prize. Rose Byrne will probably never win for Damages, which is sad to say. Christine Baranski and Archie Panjabi both got surprising nods for the new hit series The Good Wife, but like their Mad Men counterparts, too much vote splitting will occur. So I went with the real shocking nominee, Sharon Gless. She is an Emmy favorite, and old-school actors tend to win when they get nominated years after their last wins. Think her former co-star Tyne Daly in the less than stellar Judging Amy, the show never got much Emmy attention, but she won, more than once I believe, simply because she was Tyne Daly.


  1. Rose still has two more years on DAMAGES, so don't count her out just yet. Perhaps the writers will give her some truly kick-ass scenes next year.

  2. I hope that she continues to get nominated, but it seems as if the Emmys have fallen off the Damages bandwagon, so unfortunately she may never actually win. Although, the more I think about this race, the more I think that this year might be her year to be a dark horse winner.
