Archie Panjabi returns, but who will join her in the field?
Debra Winger of 'In Treatment'
Debra Winger, "In Treatment"
Nomination Status: An Emmy nomination would be a good way to recognize an admired show and tell a respected actress, "Yo Debra... Work more!"
In Her Favor: "In Treatment" has reliably generated Emmy nods for its showy supporting cast, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see either Amy Ryan or Debra Winger pick up a nod here. My hunch? If Emmy voters are going to recognize either co-star, it'll be the one with three Oscar nominations and long spells away from the industry. Winger is one of those Actress of a Certain Age who everybody wishes would get better roles in more projects. An Emmy nomination would only open more doors.
Working Against Her: Winger had a difficult-to-warm-to character on a show that generated ample critical love and miniscule ratings. With Ryan in the same category, even "In Treatment" fans may be split, leading to neither being nominated.
