I keep debating whether or not to put Wendi McLendon-Covey from The Goldbergs in my predictions. The most comparable situation I could think of is Martha Plimpton for Raising Hope.
Were people predicting Plimpton at all? Did anyone think Raising Hope would get any nominations?
I was around, but I do not really remember. Raising Hope was much better received than The Goldbergs though, with a 75 on Metacritic instead of a 52. It also got a TCA nomination for best comedy and even a little love from the guilds. Plimpton was also a past Emmy nominee and Greg Garcia had some Emmy clout from My Name is Earl.
