Chandra Wilson of 'Grey's Anatomy'
Chandra Wilson, "Grey's Anatomy"
Nomination Status: If a second "In Treatment" actress breaks the nomination field, a second "Grey's Anatomy" actress will be right behind.
Bottom Line: Would it be Chandra Wilson or Sandra Oh joining Katherine Heigl in the field? Well, Wilson had the whole "Chief doesn't want me in Peds" arc this season. And Oh had the whole "My boyfriend is a crazy man who chokes me in my sleep" arc. Pretty good stuff for both of them. Oh has been nominated the past four years. Wilson has been nominated the past three years. Since we didn't want to pick between them, we just chose the one whose picture we were able to find first. Congrats, Chandra Wilson! On a more serious note, it wouldn't be at all surprising if voters decided to ditch Rachel Griffiths this year, allowing two nominees from both "Grey's Anatomy" and "In Treatment." This is a surprisingly deep category, isn't it?
