Archie Panjabi returns, but who will join her in the field?
Ginnifer Goodwin of 'Big Love'
Ginnifer Goodwin, "Big Love"
Nomination Status: If Emmy voters want to recognize one member of the "Big Love" cast in its final season, Goodwin feels like the best choice.
In Her Favor: Chloe Sevigny may have won the Golden Globe for "Big Love," but it was Goodwin who seemed to spend all of the final season crying and discovering herself. Toss in a building feature film presence and a high-profile role in a new network drama and Goodwin has the sort of rising profile Emmy voters like.
Working Against Her: Golden Globe voters seemed to love "Big Love." Emmy voters did not. Although Ellen Burstyn, Sissy Spacek and Mary Kay Place have all earned Emmy nods over the years, no member of the drama's regular cast has been nominated.
