WORKING THE POLL: AND THE NOMINEES ARE …
This week the Emmy nominations were announced, and we were pleasantly surprised to see some of our favorites in each category — especially the out performers and the women who play lesbian/bi on TV.
As far as out women go, Jane Lynch is a contender in Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy for her role in Glee (as well as for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on Two and a Half Men); Lily Tomlin was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her recurring role on Damages; and Wendy and Lisa could win Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for Nurse Jackie.
Then there is Archie Panjabi, nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama for her role as Kalinda, the bisexual temptress on The Good Wife and Toni Collette for her multiple roles (including butch-esque Buck) on United States of Tara.
So who has the best chance of winning the statue in their category?
In our poll last week, we asked who your favorite Canadian was. Your answer: Ellen Page.
