Krysten Ritter of 'Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23'
Krysten Ritter, "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23"
Nomination Status: Zero. But it'd be fun to hear somebody read "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" on Emmy nod morning.
In Her Favor: Ritter lives up to or down to the quality of her material and it happens that the "Breaking Bad" and "Gravity" star is living up to some fine material here, having a ton of fun playing the eponymous "Apartment 23." Wait. No. The eponymous "Bee." Yeah, wandering around naked and saying inappropriate things suits Ritter very well.
Working Against Her: "Don't Trust the B----" wasn't a big hit when it aired this spring, so don't expect ABC to invest much in an Emmy push. Also, as much as I like Ritter, I like her co-star Dreama Walker even more some episodes. I don't suppose there's a big bloc of support for the show, but if there is, Ritter and Walker will split the vote.
