Courtney Cox-Arquette of 'Cougar Town'
Courteney Cox-Arquette, "Cougar Town"
Nomination Status: The strong, well-regarded star of a new semi-hit can't be disregarded.
In Her Favor: "Cougar Town" was built around Courteney Cox, but what she deserves credit for is anchoring the show exactly long enough for the writers to realize that it was always supposed to be a true ensemble. The more of an ensemble "Cougar Town" is, the better it is, so Cox's generosity is probably her best attribute.
Working Against Her: A lot of people talk about Cox's awards chances as if she's some sort of award night regular just because she happened to once star on a show that earned a lot of Emmy nominations. The fact is that Cox earned her first Golden Globe nomination for "Cougar Town" and her next Emmy nomination will be her first.
