Can Sofia Vergara or Betty White dethrone Julie Bowen?
Jane Lynch of 'Glee'
Jane Lynch, "Gee"
Nomination Status: Blah blah former nominee blah blah.
In Her Favor: Jane Lynch is a two-time nominee for her "Glee" work as Sue Sylvester and this season she got to play a major role in that obscenely manipulative school shooting episode. If Emmy voters enjoyed that episode more than the people I follow on Twitter did, maybe she's able to milk one last nomination as she continues to be marginalized on a show that has no use for her. Lynch has gotten strong early reviews for her work in "Annie" on Broadway which is, as always, not the kind of thing that's likely to help a lot, but it also can't hurt.
Working Against Her: Lynch fell out of the nomination field last year after a season in which she actually had a couple good submission episodes. "Glee" had its years as an Emmy powerhouse, but those years are past.
