The Janes are back in the 2013 Emmy race for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series!
Yes indeed, after being left out of contention in 2012, Glee‘s Jane Lynch (a winner in 2010 and a nominee in 2011) and 30 Rock‘s Jane Krakowski (nominated 2009-2011) get another shot at the statuette.
In order to earn it, though, they’ll have to get past Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen, who’s going for her third consecutive win, as well as her costar Sofia Vergara (nominated for the fourth straight year), and two other veterans of the category — Nurse Jackie‘s Merritt Wever (up for the second time) and The Big Bang Theory‘s Mayim Bialik (who also scored her first nod last year).
Which means there’s only newcomer to the very crowded, seven-person party: Veep‘s Anna Chlumsky.
