In order of probability, list all returning nominees (or winners) from last year who you feel are likely to be snubbed this year.April 14, 2012 at 11:20 am #242647
In order of probability.
1. Andre Braugher
2. Chris Colfer
3. Mireille Enos
4. Michelle Forbes
5. Melissa McCarthy
6. Edie Falco
7. Laura Linney
8. The Office
9. Mariska Hargitay
10. Jane LynchApril 14, 2012 at 11:49 am #242648
– Mireille Enos, The Killing
That finale has really ruined the show’s most loyal fanbase and that probably includes some voters. The sad thing is, last year, it was *thisclose* to getting in for Drama Series. Either it or Justified would have received the next nod.
– Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: SVU
After she got in last year – especially over reigning champ and perennial nominee Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer), I said I’d never disocunt her again. But surely voters are tired of this filler-nominee. Hell, Hargitay herself is probably tired of it!
—In: Glenn Close/Damages; Julianna Margulies/The Good Wife; Elisabeth Moss/Mad Men; Kathy Bates/Harry’s Law; Kyra Sedgwick/The Closer; Claire Danes/Homeland.
– Melissa McCarthy, Mike & Molly
It took her ridiculous win to make everyone – which would include voters – to realize, “She only got this because of Bridesmaids.” I mean, hell, Toni Collette was snubbed for the brilliant third and final season of United States of Tara, MLP always delivers in Weeds, and Courteney Cox was still great in season two of Cougar Town. Yet…We get Melissa McCarthy? And she wins? Ugh.
– Martha Plimpton, Raising Hope
I’m not happy about this one. It was my favorite surprise nominee last year and she had the best submission of the bunch. I am REALLY hoping she stays on Oscar’s radar, but there are so many past winners – Fey, Falco – perennial nominees that have yet to win – Poehler – reigning champs – McCarthy (has anyone ever not been invited back to defend their title in this category?), Linney (in other categories of couirse) – and newbies – Laua Dern – plus, a newbie who’s won twice before before two other series, once in this category – JLD. With all that, I just don’t know if the little known Plimpton can break through again. If she does, I’ll be over the moon.

I think Martha Plimpton is more likely to get snubbed before McCarthy, Falco and Linney.
Michelle Forbes (if she still goes supporting) and Mireille Enos are very likely.
Drama Supporting Actor will have a big shake-up, so Josh Charles, Alan Cumming, Walton Goggins and Emmy favorite Andre Braugher could all be gone.
Even though I think they’re gonna finally get the boot (actually since last year), you never know about the perennial nominees like Hugh Laurie and Mariska Hargitay, they could stay where they are, and this is also Laurie’s last year.
Dexter as a series is out, but Michael C. Hall could still get in for one last time. The Good Wife is on its way out as well.
Jane Krakowski is the most vulnerable in her category, followed by Jane Lynch, who could have one year left even if Glee doesn’t get series nom.
Chris Colfer is vulnerable, but after Jon Cryer decides to go lead, he may still get in after all.April 14, 2012 at 11:53 am #242650
if Lynch and Krakowski stay does that bump cloris out?April 14, 2012 at 1:20 pm #242652
The Good Wife (series)
Michael C. Hall
The Office (series)
Jane LynchApril 14, 2012 at 1:22 pm #242653
I don’t understand why people are saying Martha Plimpton; Raising Hope is clearly on the radar (two acting nominations) and she’s also a guest on The Good Wife (another show the actors love).April 14, 2012 at 1:46 pm #242654
I was pretty certain they were going to drop Mariska from Outstanding Lead Actress until I learned that she was going to appear in every episode of the season and not just 13 as was originally announced. Olivia Benson is here to stay.April 14, 2012 at 1:49 pm #242655
What other actors, aside from Kyra Sedgwick, did they snub immediately following a win?April 14, 2012 at 2:01 pm #242656
What other actors, aside from Kyra Sedgwick, did they snub immediately following a win?

2005-James Spader, Boston Legal (returned in 2007 and 2008)

2008-Jean Smart, Samantha Who?April 14, 2012 at 2:05 pm #242657
The following were snubbed right after winning the Emmy award:
Debra Messing won Lead Actress in a Comedy in 2003 and was snubbed in 2004.
Eric McCormack won Lead Actor in a Comedy in 2001 and was snubbed in 2002.
Richard Dysart won Supporting Actor in a Drama in 1992 for L.A.Law and was snubbed in 1993.

Some winners in 2005 were snubbed in 2006, probably due to the panel system, such as Patricia Arquette, Felicity Huffman, James Spader and Lost (series).April 14, 2012 at 3:14 pm #242659
