Archie Panjabi returns, but who will join her in the field?
Christine Baranski of 'The Good Wife'
Christine Baranski, "The Good Wife"
Nomination Status: Nominated for this role last year and with seven additional nods on her resume, Baranski will probably be back this year.
In Her Favor: Baranski is an Emmy favorite and her show is likely to expand its Emmy reach this year. Probably if you go back through the season, you could find an episode or two either with Gary Cole or in the Michael Ealy/takeover arc that gave her some good material.
Working Against Her: This just wasn't an interesting season for Baranski's Diane Lockhart. If this weren't the Emmys and Emmy voters weren't so darned complacent, you'd never think to compare Baranski's work *this season* to the performances turned in by literally 20 supporting actresses who won't be nominated.
