Emmy season is upon us! For the next two weeks, Emmy voters will be checking off names and shows they think are worthy of getting a nomination come July 19. We at TVGuide.com have a few selections in mind ourselves. First up: our dream ballot for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
Jimmy Kimmel to host Emmy Awards
Santana softened up this year when McKinley High's resident mean girl came out to her family, a self-realization arc that Rivera deftly handled. True, it veers more toward drama than comedy, but Rivera deserves props for showing that she can do more than just deliver bitchy barbs.
Casey Wilson, Happy Endings
If Penny's doomed to be single, can we at least give her an Emmy to keep her company? Wilson has been a season MVP, churning out a-mah-zing scenes one after another, from her wacky, pathetic romantic exploits to her epiphany that she has feelings for Dave. It's the Year of Penny, voters, so throw her a bone!
Merritt Wever, Nurse Jackie
For those who say Showtime's dark comedies aren't funny, you haven't seen Wever. As the comic foil to Edie Falco's hardened Jackie, every time Wever's overeager Zoey opens her mouth, she injects the moody show with the animated lightness that it's often lacking. And with Zoey's awkward relationship with Lenny this year, Wever has had us in stitches even more. And that is just what the doctor ordered.
Who do you hope is nominated?
