Who will win for Best Actress in a Showtime Semi-Comedy?
Lea Michele of 'Glee'
Lea Michele of "Glee"
Nomination Status: Nominated last year, so definitely a contender again. I may just be attempting to will her out of the field.
In Her Favor: Lea Michele has been nominated for an Emmy and two Golden Globes for her "Glee" performance. And even if many critics turned on "Glee" this season, audiences certainly didn't. Or they kept watching, even if they did turn on the show.
Working Against Her: Michele is the lead actress on "Glee" basically as a technicality and she's never a comedic lead actress. There were a few moments in the second half of the season and in the New York City-set finale when Michele's Rachel seemed less-than-annoying, but it was a rough season overall.
