Attrition: None. As with Supporting Actress in a Comedy, this Emmy category remains intact, including winner Eric Stonestreet. That leaves very little room for breakthroughs, not that there were that many new comedies trying to break in. Still, this may be the category that offers the best chance for one of my "Other Notable Candidates" to break through with a nomination.
