Christine Baranski has been nominated in the past for her supporting role on “The Good Wife” and guest role on “The Big Bang Theory.” She stands a good chance at both nominations again this year.
Which role will win her an Emmy first?July 9, 2015 at 10:52 am #352881
I really think she is overdue for Good Wife. I wish she won in Season 1 over Archie honestly. But I think she has a better shot with Big Bang just because the guest category is not highly competitive this yearJuly 9, 2015 at 10:55 am #352882
I’d obviously amazing if she wins for both. Best Emmy night ever.
I’d be fine with either win, though because she’s amazing in both.
(well, she’s just amazing in everything tbh)July 9, 2015 at 11:45 am #352883
Her Good Wife tapes are better than her Big Bang episode this year. The Comedy Guest Actress may be bare, but it’s time she’s rewarded for playing Diane Lockhart. Season five should have been her winning year and it would have been if not for Anna Gunn her eight Breaking Bad episodes. Baranski had her juiciest highs this year on The Good Wife (like “Winning Ugly,” “Red Meat,” “Undisclosed Recipients,” “Old Spice,” “The Deconstruction”), and I think she can pull a win out of “Loser Edit” at the Emmys. It’s the most all-encompassing tape we’ll see in the category if she’s nominated and submit it. (Unless voting becomes a popularity contest and voters ignore the tapes.) Baranski has more screentime than Smith, more impact than Hendricks, and doesn’t have Lena Headey’s damaging body-double scandal hanging over her performance (and this will be a problem for Headey as we get closer to the ceremony in general). And the odds are in her favor, a Good Wife actress wins every year.July 9, 2015 at 12:38 pm #352884
I would love to see her win for both, but she has a better shot of winning for The Good Wife, and I really, really hope she wins. She deserves it!July 9, 2015 at 12:47 pm #352885
The better performance is obviously The Good Wife, but that category is so stacked this year, I don’t even know if she can get back in. Season 5 was her best year, but I agree that no one was going to stop Anna Gunn (nor should they; Emmy got it so perfectly right honoring her performance two years in a row). If the trend of one actress from The Good Wife continues, I actually hope it’s Linda Lavin in Guest Drama Actress. Loved her subtle yet heartfelt performance, plus she’s loooong overdue for an Emmy on her mantle.July 9, 2015 at 12:57 pm #352886
I’m really hoping Baranski wins in Supporting Actress this year, especially now that Anna Gunn is out of contention. Baranski doesn’t have a slam dunk submission from Season 6, but “Loser Edit” is a very well written and topical episode featuring a terrific, nuanced performance from Baranski, and she gets a lot of screen time. If when the nominations, and subsequently the submissions, are announced and there isn’t a clear, 100% frontrunner, then I think Baranski has a decent chance of winning.
On a separate note, I still think “On The Bubble” from last season was a perfect episode to submit. She submitted “The Last Call”, which was also good, but her best performance on the series to date is the former. Most likely Anna Gunn would have won regardless, but I would have really liked to see Baranski go with that one.

Baranski is almost guaranteed to be in sixth place if she gets into supporting actress this year.July 10, 2015 at 6:27 pm #352888
Baranski is not winning supporting actress this year. Have you guys seen how stacked this category is?July 11, 2015 at 1:08 am #352889
Guest Comedy Actress really is wide open. I’m rooting for Jenifer Lewis, but who knows if she can even get in. My four top deserving performances are on top, followed by nine other likely contenders. I’m pretty sure the final 6 is in this list of 13, but when it comes to these categories, I may as well just draw out of a hat.
To think… I spent nearly an entire year thinking it would be Yael Stone versus Lorraine Touissaint. How quickly things change!
– Joan Cusack, Shameless
– Susie Essman, Broad City
– Jenifer Lewis, Blackish
– Kyra Sedgwick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine
– Elizabeth Banks, Modern Family
– Christine Baranski, The Big Bang Theory
– Kathy Bates, Mike and Molly
– Carol Burnett, Glee
– Tyne Daly, Modern Family
– Tina Fey, Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt
– Rita Moreno, Jane the Virgin
– Octavia Spencer, Mom
– Mary Steenburgen, The Last Man on EarthJuly 11, 2015 at 9:06 pm #352890
She probably doesnt stand a chance for either. I HATE that she hasnt won for the good wife, but she clearly is not gonna won for this role…ever. Her appearance in big bang this year was by far inferior to her previous ones, so she wouldnt win with that, and might not even be nominated.July 13, 2015 at 6:34 am #352891
She should have won either during season 1 or last year..I still dont know how Archie beat her that year…But she better be happy that she won an Emmy 20yrs ago for “Cybill”July 13, 2015 at 7:16 am #352892

Baranski absolutely doesn’t come across as disgruntled that she hasn’t won for any of her recent bids. She is always gracious for the recognition that she receives each year for The Good Wife, and I believe she is aware that she is the only cast member to be nominated for each season thus far.
I agree that it seemed more likely that she would win for Season 1 over Archie Panjabi based on name recognition and previous track record with the Emmy Awards, but Kalinda was truly the breakout character from the series in the beginning and her submission was good enough to carry her to the win. I think Baranski was probably a very very distant second place to Anna Gunn last year.

In any other year, her Big Bang Theory tape wouldn’t be good enough to win. This year, I’d be surprised if it didn’t. It’s at least well-written, and features her very prominently. I honestly can’t predict that category, until I see who’s nominated, and what they submit.
