Christina Applegate of 'Samantha Who?'
Christina Applegate, "Samantha Who?"
Nomination Status: On the edge, but should be nominated
Bottom Line: Last year, Applegate was everybody's popular dark horse to win the Emmy. She had the funny performance on the first year hit comedy and she had the courageous battle with cancer. Applegate's heroism hasn't faltered and she's continued to be a public and vocal about what she went through. Unfortunately, "Samantha Who?" went from alleged hit to cancelled in no time flat. Another thing that didn't change? Applegate remained really funny on her ABC comedy, which should be enough to earn her another nomination. Lest we forget, she's an Emmy winner, for her guest work on "Friends."
