Michael Raymond-James of 'Terriers'
Michael Raymond-James, "Terriers"
Nomination Status: We've now reached the pie-in-the-sky portion of this gallery.
In His Favor: When "Terriers" premiered, Donal Logue was the known quality and Michael Raymond-James was the guy who did the intentionally bad Cajun accent on the first season of "True Blood." By the end of the season, it was a more-than-equal partnership (even if Logue is in the Lead Actor category). If Emmy voters watched "Terriers," Raymond-James would be a lock for a nomination. And if Raymond-James were a lock for a nomination, Laura Allen would be as well, because their scenes together, especially late in the season, were dynamite.
Working Against Him: Nobody watched "Terriers." This is the sad, but unavoidable truth.
