There has been a curse of previous winners, as they have not won again in so long. This race has plenty of past winners that are sure to get in such as Tina Fey, Toni Collette, and last year's winner Edie Falco, although they will most likely take a back seat to Laura Linney in Showtime's dramedy The Big C. There are some new contenders such as Melissa McCarthy and Martha Plimpton, but they may have to wait their turns at glory. Previous nominees Lea Michele, Mary-Louise Parker, and Amy Poehler are all big contenders, and with Parks & Recreation getting better and better, Poehler could be a contender for the win. The DH ladies, Patricia Heaton, Kaley Cuoco, and Joanna Garcia are all excellent, but will most likely miss the cut. The one that should get in, but will most likely keep being snubbed is the always-superb Courtney Cox, but maybe the Academy will finally wise up and get her that nod.
