Emmy Race: Supporting Actress Comedy

The nominees are:

Curb Your Enthusiasm • HBO • HBO Entertainment
Cheryl Hines as Cheryl David

Desperate Housewives • ABC • Touchstone Television
Alfre Woodard as Betty Applewhite

My Name Is Earl • NBC • An Amigos de Garcia production
in association with 20th Century Fox Television
Jaime Pressly as Joy

Weeds • Showtime • Showtime Presents in association
with Lions Gate Television and Tilted Productions
Elizabeth Perkins as Celia Hodes

Will & Grace • NBC • KoMut Entertainment in association
with NBC Studios and Three Sisters Entertainment
Megan Mullally as Karen


Out: Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm). Her character is not competitive enough, I wonder how she got the nomination nod. Ditto Elizabeth Perkins (Weeds).

I have stopped watching Desperate Housewives so I cannot comment on Alfre Woodard's performance.

So this race is a fight between a fresh face in the category, Jaime Pressly, who, as Joy in My Name is Earl, is utterly hilarious; versus a veteran and former winner, Megan Mullally. And because this is Will & Grace's final year at the Emmy's, I will not be surprised if Megan wins it...none so fitting as a trophy to cap 8 Seasons of playing Karen so effectively.
