5. Christina Hendricks "Mad Men"
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.
