Emmy Race: Official Actor/Actress List, Part 1: Comedy and Supporting Drama

GoldDerby has once again released the official semi-final list for the Emmy's, this time for Best Supporting Actor - Drama and Best Actress - Comedy.

  • Naveen Andrews, "Lost" ("The Economist")
  • Bruce Dern, "Big Love" ("Good Guys and Bad Guys")
  • Christian Clemenson, "Boston Legal" ("Roe vs. Wade, The Musical")
  • Ted Danson, "Damages" ("Jesus, Mary and Joe Cocker")
  • Michael Emerson, "Lost" ("The Shape of Things to Come")
  • Zeljko Ivanek, "Damages" ("I Hate These People")
  • T.R. Knight, "Grey's Anatomy" ("Freedom, Parts 1 & 2")
  • William Shatner, "Boston Legal" ("Mad About You")
  • John Slattery, "Mad Men" ( "Long Weekend")
  • Blair Underwood, "In Treatment" ("Alex: Week 6")
  • Jake Weber, "Medium" ("Wicked Game, Part 1")
I'm going for Michael Emerson for the win, yet Ted Danson is going to be a worthy competitor, many of them are.

Notably missing? Two people I've expected to wow the panel --- Henry Ian Cusick (Lost) and Robert Sean Leonard (House).

And what the hell is TR Knight's name doing there? :P

  • Christina Applegate, "Samantha Who?" ("The Restraining Order")
  • Marcia Cross, "Desperate Housewives" ("Now You Know")
  • America Ferrera, "Ugly Betty" ("Odor in the Court")
  • Tina Fey, "30 Rock" ("Sandwich Day")
  • Anna Friel, "Pushing Daisies" ("Bitter Sweets")
  • Felicity Huffman, "Desperate Housewives" ("Now I Know, Don't Be Scared")
  • Eva Longoria Parker, "Desperate Housewives" ("In Buddy's Eyes")
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus, "New Adventures of Old Christine" ("One and a Half Men")
  • Mary-Louise Parker, "Weeds" ("Bill Sussman")
  • Sarah Silverman, "The Sarah Silverman Program" ("Bored of the Rings")
Christina Applegate is my personal choice but it's going to be a tough one for her in this category, she's up against the Desperate Housewives favorites and Mary Louise Parker.

Good job, Anna Friel!
