Based on her likability, overall charm and especially the power of her performance I think she pretty much has the Emmy for Comedy Actress in the bag.
Sure, the show isn't especially funny and truth be told Amy Poehler is the one who should be collecting this award, but as we know these silly academies like their "comedy" to have tears and more drama than good old laughs.
Anyway, this made me wonder, is Showtime the new go-to channel for Best Actress Emmys?
If Linney triumphs, she will be third lady in a row (after Toni Collette and Edie Falco) to come from that cable channel.
Anyway, have you checked out The Big C yet?
Also check out my review for Demob.
