Jessica Lowndes of '90210'
Jessica Lowndes, "90210"
Nomination Status: Ummm... Yeah. Not gonna happen.
Bottom Line: For the majority of the season, Lowndes was the only reason to watch The CW's "90210," a fact that became so obvious to the show's producers that they bumped her from guest star to regular and gave her a series of heavy-lifting arcs, including drug addiction, teen pregnancy and young love. We liked her character a lot more as a coked out bad girl than as a teary cautionary tale, but whatever the producers asked Lowndes to do, she pulled off. The other young actresses in the cast all get more hype, but you want our hunch: Five years from now, the one still acting will be Lowndes. But she isn't getting an Emmy nomination this year.
