Emmy Nomination Preview 2013 - Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy
Can Sofia Vergara or Betty White dethrone Julie Bowen?
Jessica Walter of 'Arrested Development'
Jessica Walter, "Arrested Development"
Nomination Status: Former nominee could be welcomed back.
In Her Favor: An Emmy winner way back in the day for "Amy Prentiss," Walter was nominated for "Arrested Development" back in 2005 and could benefit if Emmy voters are looking for a way to celebrate the comedy's Netflix resurrection. Walter's Lucille only has one POV episode and "Queen B" is an amusing showcase for Walter, letting her sing and dance and also, in the end, have the sort of brief epiphany that rarely lasts very long in the world of "Arrested Development."
Working Against Her: Leaving "Queen B" aside, Walter is mostly a non-factor in the new "Arrested Development" episodes. With two over-long George episodes, Jeffrey Tambor may be a better outlet for any and all "Arrested Development" love, or else frequent Emmy bridesmaid Will Arnett may get another shot.
