Will ‘The Good Wife’ continue its Emmys winning streak this year?

The Good Wife” has had a unique track record at the Emmys: it has won one acting award every season so far. As user AMG explains in our forums, “Julianna Margulies [2011, 2014], Archie Panjabi [2010], Carrie Preston [2013] and Martha Plimpton [2012] have won for each of the five seasons thus far.” Now he wonders, “Will the winning streak continue for its sixth season?”

Emmys exclusive: Which episode is submitted by Christine Baranski (‘Good Wife’)?

The CBS legal drama has three acting nominations this year: Drama Supporting Actor (Alan Cumming), Drama Supporting Actress (Christine Baranski) and Drama Guest Actor (Michael J. Fox). None of them are currently forecast to win according to our racetrack odds, but could one of them pull off an upset? After all, hardly anyone anticipated Panjabi’s win for the first season.

Baranski, the only actor to be nominated for all six seasons of the show, ranks fourth in her category with 33/1 odds.

Cumming is even more of an underdog. This is his third nomination for the series, but his first since 2011, and he ranks fifth with 100/1 odds.

Fox appears to have more of a fighting chance. Our predictors rank him third with 15/2 odds, and with good reason. Though he has lost all three of his previous bids for “The Good Wife,” he has accumulated five Emmys over the course of his career so far and can never be definitively counted out.

Moviefan61794: Baranski has the best chance to win out of all three, but I’m not so sure about her odds. She’s got some tough competition. Although Michael J. Fox hasn’t won yet for this role … that could change this year.

Tony_DiMeo: NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Unless they love Michael J. Fox enough to give him the award it won’t happen.

24Emmy: I think Michael J. Fox could win. There’s no obvious pick for Guest Actor in a Drama. Most were predicting Courtney B. Vance to win for “Scandal,” but he was snubbed.

Awardzilla: No. They should be grateful they got that much. Even though, of three acting nominations, they went to the absolute wrong people from the show in each category. Should have been Archie Panjabi, Matt Czuchry and David Hyde Pierce, all three of whom had tapes to win.

DS0816: Christine Baranski, who won 20 years ago for “Cybill,” is the only chance for this CBS series. That’s because the acting winners, for “The Good Wife,” have been all female.
