    It’s a little early considering the series premiers on April 22nd, but HBO just released the first trailer for VEEP:

    Looks like Julia Louis-Dreyfus is as sharp as ever!

    That had a telefilm vibe.. Maybe I think that cause of Game Change, not sure. I wish JLD well!

    Hope JLD does well too (but not well enough to topple Amy Poehler’s momentum). This looks like the perfect role for her.

    Whta momentum do you think Poehler has suddenly?  If she didn’t win last year, much like the show, she isn’t winning for the role.

    Perhaps momentum was the wrong word, but everybody seems to be predicting her.

    I find it hard to believe, considering the trends of late, that if Louis-Dreyus submits the pilot, and is as good as we think she’ll be, that she won’t win.

    ^Call up Laura Linney and have a little chat about that. But then again, Linney is no Louis-Dreyfus.

    Very true about Linney! Cable dark-comedies have been quite popular in the category, Linney excluded, but the last three winners have all been for the first season of the series.

    Linney has 3 Emmy wins in 4 nominations, while Dreyfus has 2 Emmy wins in 12 nominations.  Linney may have a better win percentage, but Louis-Dreyfus is absolutely a favorite of the Academy.

    Linney got really hurt by the backlash against Showtime dramedies in general and The Big C in particular (only got in for her and Elba).  Of the voters who hadn’t soured on those shows I would imagine Falco split at least some of that support with Linney, and then you throw in McCarthy having the Bridesmaids factor behind her and you have an upset win.

    Considering Linney lost what was an incredibly strong bid (in terms of buzz) last season, I find it hard to believe she’ll ever have that opportunity to win in this category again, unless The Big C makes significant improvements in quality and critical response.
