Sally Field of 'Brothers & Sisters'
Sally Field, "Brothers & Sisters"
Nomination Status: Part of a quarter in the running for two nominations. We're guessing she falls off nomination roll this year.
In Her Favor: Sally Field has two Oscars, three Emmys wins and three straight Emmy nods for this particular role. And if you go back to the first season of "Brothers & Sisters," she even had moments where she was very good, but at this point she's coasting on reputation.
Working Against Her: Leaving aside that Field is a supporting actress on her show, she's a supporting actress on a show that has become absurdly erratic in recent seasons, quality-wise. After nominations for each of the first two "B&S" seasons, Field failed to get Golden Globe or SAG nominations this year, which isn't necessarily damning, but it sure isn't a good sign.
