Felicity Huffman of 'Desperate Housewives'
Felicity Huffman, "Desperate Housewives"
Nomination Status: Will there be any series-ending nostalgia to boost this Emmy winner? Probably not.
In Her Favor: Once upon a time, Felicity Huffman won an Emmy for "Desperate Housewives" and was nominated for a second Emmy. If ever there were a time for renewed appreciation of her work on the Marc Cherry series, this would be it. You know... Cuz the show's done. Huffman also benefits from most of her "Desperate" co-stars not bothering to submit this year. If you want to honor the show, she's one of the few available outlets.
Working Against Her: Nobody's going to want to give "nostalgia" votes to "Desperate Housewives" and Huffman hasn't been nominated for an Emmy since 2007.
