Has Jane Krakowski's Emmy luck ran out? Or will the final season of "30 Rock" be the charm?

After netting three consecutive bids in the race for Comedy Supporting Actress (2009, 2010, 2011), Krakowski was snubbed last year for her extremely popular role of Jenna Maroney on the long-running NBC comedy.

Last year's six nominated supporting players were Julie Bowen ("Modern Family"), Mayim Bialik ("The Big Bang Theory"), Kathryn Joosten ("Desperate Housewives"), Sofia Vergara ("Modern Family"), Merritt Wever ("Nurse Jackie") and Kristen Wiig ("Saturday Night Live").

Only four of these women are eligible in this category again this year, as Wiig is no longer a regular on "SNL" and Joosten passed away. Might Krakowski re-claim her position in this crowded field?

According to Gold Derby's Experts, Editors and Users, Krawkowski will return to the Comedy Supporting Actress race, having odds of 14/1. That puts her in fifth place behind Bowen, Vergara, Jessica Walter ("Arrested Development") and Bialik. Rounding out the top six is relative newcomer Allison Williams ("Girls").

Emmy stalwart Betty White ("Hot in Cleveland") just misses the cut and comes in seventh place. Like Krakowski, White was also snubbed last year despite being nominated previously for her role.

At the Emmys, it's a rarity to see a performer return to the spotlight after sitting out a year. More often than not, once the Emmys decide to snub someone, they don't look back. One recent exception to the rule in this category is Holland Taylor ("Two and a Half Men"), who was first nominated in 2005, snubbed in 2006, nominated again in  2007 and 2008, snubbed in 2009, and nominated a final time in 2010. Krakowski could follow in Taylor's on-again, off-again footsteps thanks to renewed love for "30 Rock" in the show's final year.

If Krakowski is lucky enough to be nominated, she has a whopper of an episode to submit to Emmy judges. The series finale of "30 Rock" gave all of its actors -- Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jack McBrayer -- memorable moments, but Krakowski steals the show by singing a tongue-twistingly original song at the close of the series... complete with tears.

Watch Krakowski's final moment below.

Is it enough to warrant a return to the Comedy Supporting Actress line-up? Find out when Emmy nominations are revealed July 18. The 65th Primetime Emmys will air on CBS Sept. 22.
