This year, there seems to be some gaps from previous years, so there are a lot of possible contenders. The Good Wife is one of the best shows on television so last year's winner and Emmy fave Archie Panjabi and Christine Baranski are probably in. As is the always wonderful Christina Hendricks in Mad Men (if they drop down January Jones as they should, then Mad Men will get in two). The Big Love girls could also be a factor with its last season. The Grey's Anatomy girls (especially Chandra and Sandra) could be back in the race after missing out, as this has been an incredible season for the show. It has also been a wonderful 2nd season for the underrated Parenthood, which will hopefully start to get some Emmy attention, and with Mae Whitman, Bonnie Bedalia, and Monica Potter, that could happen. The In Treatment duo of Amy Ryan and Debra Winger might be unstoppable for a nod for In Treatment as well. Finally, two big contenders who will probably get nominated are the wonderful Kelly MacDonald from Boardwalk Empire, and the kick-ass Sharon Gless for Burn Notice.
