Lee Pace of 'Pushing Daisies'
Lee Pace, "Pushing Daisies"
Nomination Status: Well, he was nominated last year. Now he just has to hope Emmy voters remember "Pushing Daisies" ever existed.
Bottom Line: It was a bit of a pleasant surprise last year when the Emmy voters noticed Lee Pace, especially since they simultaneously dissed Anna Friel. It's a sad reality that Pace, like the magical show around him, is likely to be forgotten this year. But speaking of "magical," Pace's work in the "Oh Oh Oh... It's Magic" episode, which including dealing with his daddy issues and getting to know his half-brothers, was absolutely Emmy worthy, so maybe it will hold up for voters.
