Mary McDonnell of 'Battlestar Galactica'
Mary McDonnell, "Battlestar Galactica"
Nomination Status: Doubtful, but it would make a lot of geeks VERY happy.
Bottom Line: For years, McDonnell's Emmy nomination for "Battlestar Galactica" has been on the wishlist for fanboys, fangirls and TV critics. Emmy voters, though, have been less enthusiastic, snubbing the acclaimed performance over and over again. This is McDonnell's last chance for "Battlestar Galactica" so is this the year she breaks through? Smart money says "No," alas. And pity the Emmy voters if they snub McDonnell for "Battlestar" and reward her dreadful guest appearance on "Grey's Anatomy."
