Emmy Nomination Preview 2012 - Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama
With Margo Martindale gone, will this be Christina Hendricks' year?
Anna Gunn of 'Breaking Bad'
Anna Gunn, "Breaking Bad"
Nomination Status: Emmy voters haven't gone deep in their recognition of one of TV's best shows. Maybe this is the year?
In Her Favor: Anna Gunn gets an unfair rap because sometimes people don't like or completely understand Skyler White. I'm not saying people don't understand her because they're dense. No. The character is tough to read. I just happen to think Anna Gunn plays Skyler's inner confusion and conflict at a very high level. Skyler doesn't quite realize the truth about the man she's still living with, but things are becoming clearer and clearer and her reaction has been fascinating to watch. That great "I am the one who knocks" scene? Yes. Bryan Cranston is like a meth-cooking volcano. But there are two people in that scene and the other one deserves an Emmy nomination as well.
Working Against Her: Nobody's nominated Gunn for anything so far. That's their loss. She'd be in my Top 6 for sure.
