Emmy Nomination Preview 2012 - Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama
Claire Danes threatens Julianna Margulies and 'Mad' women lurk
Elisabeth Moss of 'Mad Men'
Elisabeth Moss, "Mad Men"
Nomination Status: Should have won last year and should still cling to her fourth straight nomination.
In Her Favor: Elisabeth Moss has been nominated twice as Lead and once as Supporting for her work on "Mad Men." Realistically, she should have dropped back to Supporting this year and coasted. Instead, she'll be counting on Emmy voters to remember the season's Peggy-centric episodes and to ignore the weeks and weeks and weeks that she was barely featured at all. Fortunately, with episodes like "The Other Woman," Moss made the most of every second she appeared on the screen.
Working Against Her: Only the "Lead vs. Supporting" issue. Otherwise, Moss is locked in.
