The Emmy for who you used to be goes to…

The Emmy nominations have been announced. Let’s take a look at the Best Actress cateogies:


  • Frances Conroy for Six Feet Under
  • Geena Davis for Commander in Chief
  • Mariska Hargitay for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
  • Allison Janney for The West Wing
  • Kyra Sedgwick for The Closer

  • Stockard Channing for Out of Practice
  • Jane Kaczmarek for Malcolm in the Middle
  • Lisa Kudrow for The Comeback
  • Debra Messing for Will & Grace
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus for The New Adventures of Old Christine

Question: what interesting thing is true about 7 of these 10 nominees?

Answer: you won’t see them play that role any more, because the series are over. This is not usually the case with Emmys. It sort of kills the publicity advantage of winning one. On the other hand, it also avoids the “same nominees for the same roles, year after year” problem.
