Remember back in the day when I had integrity and wrote about really important things that matter? Nope? Me neither!
That said, I did promise you AGES ago that I was going to make my Emmy predictions. And then stuff like the Olympics and Ryan Lochte got in the way, so I abandoned my crusade. But the bitch is back and today we are going to discuss who I think should be voted the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Onward!
Here are the nominees:
- Mayim Bialik as Amy Farrah Fowler in The Big Bang Theory
- Kathryn Joosten as Karen McCluskey in Desperate Housewives
- Julie Bowen as Claire Dunphy in Modern Family
- Sofia Vergara as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett in Modern Family
- Merritt Wever as Zoey Barkow in Nurse Jackie
- Kristen Wiig as various characters in Saturday Night Live
Okay, really, this is a MAJOR snooze fest. I mean, not because the ladies aren’t bitchin’–they are–but because I watch 1.5 of these shows (SNL and Modern Family) and even with those low odds I know who’s going to win. So let’s talk about who WON’T.
First, let’s knock incumbent Julie off the list. Home girl as great as an uptight mom, but I don’t buy it that she’s acting. Hehe. And honestly, as much as I love Sofia Vergara as Gloria, it’s her boobs that are the starring attraction.
Merritt Wever sounds like an insurance company, so she’s out. That leaves us with three: Blossom, Kathryn, and Kristen.
This past spring was Kristen’s last season on SNL, so you’d think she’d be a given the Emmy as a consolation prize. But then Blossom had to injure her thumb in a car accident and you KNOW there is nothing the Emmys like more than overcoming tragedy. Except for maybe death. And guess what? Kathryn Joosten passed away in June after an eleven year battle against lung cancer. So . . .
Who I Want to Win: Kristen Wiig
Who Will Win: Kathryn Joosten
