Connie Britton of 'Friday Night Lights'
Connie Britton, "Friday Night Lights"
Nomination Status: Deserves a nod, but will be lucky to make the Top 10.
Bottom Line: The Principal Tami arc on "Friday Night Lights" this season gave Britton a lot to do, but probably not as much drama as her postpartum depression in Season Two. She wasn't nominated then and so, alas, she's unlikely to be nominated this year. She does, however, have two Television Critics Association nominations to her credit, so at least *somebody* has noticed the terrific work Britton's been doing for three seasons on "Friday Night Lights."
