Lisa Edelstein of 'House'
Lisa Edelstein, "House"
Nomination Status: One of these years, Edelstein is going to break into this field. Probably not this year.
Bottom Line: Edelstein actually had a great season on "House," as Cuddy had baby cravings, did-or-didn't have sex with House and nursed House through his various assortment of ailments. It remains a minor mystery that despite all of the Emmy love for the series, particularly Hugh Laurie, none of the co-stars have really been in the Emmy hunt. The only "House" supporting or guest actor to get an Emmy nomination in the show's history is David Morse, for a role that pretty much everybody hated. What sense does that make? Edelstein is yet another victim of a deep field.
