Who will win for Best Actress in a Showtime Semi-Comedy?
Courteny Cox of 'Cougar Town'
Courteney Cox, "Cougar Town"
Nomination Status: Perhaps getting worse as the show gets better.
In Her Favor: Cox deserves a rather tremendous amount of credit for realizing that "Cougar Town" worked better as a true ensemble than as a star vehicle and the show has gotten better the less central Cox has been as an individual. That, of course, has lessened her Emmy chances, but hopefully she's OK with that as well. I happen to still think Cox is great on "Cougar Town."
Working Against Her: In a field this strong, what chance does she have? Virtually none. And you know why? It's gotta be the show's name. Damn you, "Cougar Town"!!!!
