Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama
Last Year's Nominees:
Margo Martindale, "Justified"
Christine Baranski, "The Good Wife"
Michelle Forbes, "The Killing"
Christina Hendricks," "Mad Men"
Kelly Macdonald, "Boardwalk Empire"
Archie Panjabi, "The Good Wife"
Attrition: We'll have a new winner this year if nothing else, because Martindale was a one-year wonder here (though she's eligible, but won't be nominated, for "A Gifted Man"). I'm also reasonably confident that Michelle Forbes isn't going to be back after the writers sent her character off on a spiritual quest and forgot she existed. That leaves two open spots, at least one of which is certain to go to a winner from last year who finds herself in a new category. So that leaves one nomination that could be an utter free-for-all.
