Amanda Seyfried of 'Big Love'
Amanda Seyfried, "Big Love"
Nomination Status: A dark horse
Bottom Line: Seyfried is competing in this category with several of her high profile co-stars, including Chloe Sevigny, who had a great season on the HBO drama. Our hunch, though, is that Seyfried may have the best shot. As a leading lady, she's suddenly red-hot in Hollywood (deservedly so). That helps. What helps even more, though, is that she'll doubtlessly submit the "Come Ye Saints" episode, in which her emotional arc was tremendously affecting. She may have a better chance at a Golden Globe nomination later this year. Seyfried's just their flavor.
