With Kristin Chenoweth gone, will 'Glee' or 'Modern Family' stars step up?
Busy Philipps of 'Cougar Town'
Busy Philipps, "Cougar Town"
Nomination Status: Not gonna happen.
In Her Favor: There were whole episodes in the early "Cougar Town" season, before the writers figured out what the show was, when this writer was watching exclusively for Busy Philipps and Dan Byrd. Philipps is brassy, broad and without a sense of shame when it comes to comedy and it's impossibly to imagine her character working with any other actress. And it's not a fluke. Philipps has been steadily appealing ever since her turn as Kim Kelly in "Freaks and Geeks."
Working Against Her: "Cougar Town" has exactly one shot at a nomination, that being star Courteney Cox-Arquette. Otherwise? No dice.
