The six nominees Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards make for a pretty intriguing bunch.
Only three of them — “The Big Bang Theory’s” Mayim Bialik, “Modern Family’s” Julie Bowen and “Veep’s” Anna Chlumsky — are repeat nominees from last year. Bowen has won this award twice in the past, but lost out last year to Merritt Wever of “Nurse Jackie” — who wasn’t even nominated in 2014.
The other nominees are all first-timers in this category: Allison Janney of “Mom,” Kate McKinnon of “Saturday Night Live” and Kate Mulgrew of “Orange Is the New Black.” Janney, however, has four Emmys from her time on “The West Wing.”
With a pair of past winners, and actresses from a couple of TV’s most buzzed-about shows and a true wild card in McKinnon up for the honor, the category could really go any number of ways.
