Cherry Jones won't repeat, so will a 'Grey's Anatomy' or 'Mad Men' co-star top the field?
Aimee Teegarden of 'Friday Night Lights'
Aimee Teegarden, "Friday Night Lights"
Nomination Status: Emmy voters have never noticed "Friday Night Lights" actors before.
In Her Favor: Aimee Teegarden's Julie Taylor remains TV's most realistically depicted teen, an honor she's held for three or four years now. It was another tough year for Julie and, as a result, it was another great season for Teegarden, who had some scenes with Zach Gilford in which both actors were at their absolute best.
Working Against Her: She's on "Friday Night Lights," a show Emmy voters continue to be allergic to. We wish we could be more optimistic, but what are the odds that, after years of neglect, Emmy voters are going to actually watch their screeners this time around?
