Emmys 2012: The Supporting Drama Actress Race in Review, Including Our Dream Nominees

This year’s Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama contest is going to be a fun free-for-all, and we might be surprised by who ends up on top. After all, without a clear frontrunner — like last year’s winner, Margo Martindale — it could also be time for oft-nominated Christina Hendricks, brand-newbie Morena Baccarin, or frequently-overlooked Regina King and Maggie Siff to make a grab for the gold.

    Lana Parilla is a great actess

  7. Guys!!! what make you think Emilia isnot worth for that nomination? I think the reason that took her as a one of nominees is the final of the season 1 not the second. She’s a newcomer and did amazing acting with no doubt. I havent known both of them Emilia and Lena before GOT. But I have to say, Cersi is not comficated role as Daenerys, and infact, Emilia did amazed me not Lena.

  8. Lana Parrilla is the best! I can’t have enough words how to describe her incredible performance. Her character makes me change my view about the evil queen. Love you, Lana!

    She’s perfection, pure perfection in every single scene.
