Emmy Nomination Preview 2013 - Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy
Can Sofia Vergara or Betty White dethrone Julie Bowen?
Julie Bowen of 'Modern Family'
Julie Bowen, "Modern Family"
Nomination Status: Two-time winner should be back in the field.
In Her Favor: Honestly, I watched every "Modern Family" episode this season and I only remember bits and pieces of what Claire was given to do. She was flipping a house for a few episodes. That was strange and not all that funny. She went to her college reunion and... that wasn't all that funny. Oh right! Claire had the health scare with the potential heart issue. That'll probably be her Emmy episode and she'll probably beat Sofia Vergara again. Poor Sofia Vergara.
Working Against Her: Fatigue? I don't know that anybody ever thought Claire Bowen and Eric Stonestreet were going to be the breakout award juggernauts from this deep ensemble cast, but they've got two Emmys apiece now. Perhaps voters could decide that it's time to spread the wealth? But... again... health scare!
