Jennifer Beals of 'The Chicago Code'
Jennifer Beals, "The Chicago Code"
Nomination Status: Somehow unlikely.
In Her Favor: Roles this good, this full of passion and strength, don't come along that often (especially if you're a 47-year-old [47?!?!?] actress) and Beals made the most of it. I think that between "Chicago Code" and "The L Word," Beals has proven that eventually she's going to get a star vehicle that will put her right in the Emmy conversation.
Working Against Her: It just probably won't be for this 13-episode-and-out FOX drama.
