    Let’s also end another myth as Emmy season comes to play out.

    I was not a regular watcher of Mom and my only exposure to the show was watching Janneys submitted episodes.  I was shocked to see Janney appear in nearly 19 minutes of a 20 minute episode BOTH years she was nominated and won.  Is this really a supporting role I thought to myself?  How can she have these episodes entirely about her character and be a supporting actress?

    Well after an aggressive research session I can conclude that this is indeed massive category fraud.  Shame on us all for letting her get away with this.

    FACTS:

    Allison Janney plays the role of Bonnie.  If you go to epguides/Mom where they give you the synopsis of each episode, Bonnie is in the description of ALL 19 episodes of Season 3.  EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.  She has  A LOT to do in these episodes if you look at the synopsis.  And watching a few of them it is clear, she is a CO LEAD in every single episode with Faris.  It is a TWO HANDER. The show is called MOM.  Janney and Faris are MOM.  No doubts about this.

    Now this woman has how many Emmys?  Do you realize she probably cost people like Kate Mulgrew and Anna Chulsmky their first Emmys by doing this?  How many more will she cost by doing this?  How many more Mr. Speaker? How many more?

    You have JLD who is in desperate need of real competition in LEAD Actress and we have a 8 time Emmy winner bullying actual supporting actresses out of their category.  Where is Diane Ladd when you need her?  These leading lady staws!  The nerve!

    Janney needs to put on her big girl pants and take on Dreyfus in the category she actually belongs in in the first place.

    Real supporting actresses are mocked and derided when they are nominated!

    Hell, yes.

    But she doesn’t deserve to be nominated either way. She amused me a-more than a few times, but enough is enough with the hammy role she’s been given to play. Yes, I know it’s a mediocre studio sitcom, so everything has to be broad and big. But I don’t care. If they can move over from those procedural dramas, it’s about damn time they should be done with these laugh track shows.
    It’s 2016. Change or die.

    I still think this one is up for debate. Whilst Bonnie often gets her own storylines the only character who always without fail has focus is Anna Faris’ Christy. Sure you can argue that she is co-lead due to her screentime in most episodes. To me, it should be about what a show is about. And Mom is, in my opinion, about Christy’s life after her Mom comes back not Christy and Bonnie’s life reunited. I wouldn’t mind if Janney went lead as she does have a hefty role in the show but I also have no problem with supporting. There have definitely been worse category frauds.

    She doesn’t deserve to win Emmys because she’s amusing but amazing at the drama in Mom.

    Also, if Janney ever goes Lead all hope of the fantastic Anna Faris ever being nominated will be lost and that would be tragic.

    Janney is fine right where she is in supporting actress. She’s deserving of a third consecutive Emmy for “Mom.” This is BLATANT trolling! She’s never going lead. Never. No amount of dumb rants on Goldderby that no Emmy voters will read anyway will change that.

    As a weekly viewer of the show, I can attest to the fact that Allison Janney is definitely a co-lead. I think it is category fraud that she is nominated in supporting actress. She does give a great performance, but it isn’t fair to say that she is a supporting actress to the other women in the category (although some of those women are also co-leads submitted as supporting).

    Can she not get nominated at all? Please for the love of God, she ain’t funny anymore. Put her in lead and see how many voters get confused as fuck on who to blow their loads on. “Ugh uhh! Shit! I don’t know who to cum after!”

    Anyone who thinks Janney doesnt deserve another nomination for “Mom” clearly doesnt watch the show, or knows nothing about acting. She is absolutely brilliant and showcases incredible range. Yes, it’s debatable whether she should be lead or supporting. However, whatever category she lands in, she absolutely deserves the recognition.

    She’s lead, but Farris is more of a lead than she is, so I can see why it’s debatable. I do think there are other truly supporting actresses on the show who are deserving of a nomination.

    I do not regularly watch the show, but it makes sense that she would have leading screen time in her submissions because she would want to submit episodes in which she is extra prominent.

    Yeah, that’s not the case with this show. She’s a co-lead in practically every episode, sometimes the dominant lead. If Parsons and Galecki both go lead (as they should) there’s no excuse for Janney.

    The Supporting Actress placement was right for Season 1 but ever since Season 2 she’s become such a dominant presence on the show, even over Anna Faris, that it’s becoming increasingly hard to justify her staying there. I think all involved are hoping for a Faris nomination in Lead, and Janney being there would probably make that more difficult, but at this point it’s probably not happening, so I would have no problems with Janney being in Lead.

    And honestly, if anyone could beat JLD in the Lead category it’s probably Janney.
