Peter Krause of 'Parenthood'
Peter Krause, "Parenthood"
Nomination Status: You can't count out a former nominee on a well-regarded show.
In His Favor: NBC is pushing "Parenthood" hard and they have a product that some people truly love. If the support is strong enough, it wouldn't be shocking to see the solid Peter Krause make it back on the ballot for the first time since he earned the last of three "Six Feet Under" nominations back in 2006.
Working Against Him: "Parenthood" is an ensemble and Krause is a part of that ensemble, rather than the centerpiece of that ensemble. If you compare his workload his output for this season to any of the actors above him on the this list (with the exception of Matthew Fox), he really can't compete.
