It Could Be a Repeat for Mother of All Winners

Article excerpt

Emmy voters love Allison Janney, who already has a total of six statuettes for her work on three different shows - "The West Wing," "Mom" and "Masters of Sex." Janney looks to be a sure thing to land a third consecutive nomination for her work on "Mom" this year, having won the last two years in a row.

Can anyone overtake Janney? Perhaps previous winner Julie Bowen, who continues to score nominations even when other "Modern Family" co-stars have dropped off the list. If there's a surge of love for the former champ, her co-star Sofia Vergara could also score another nomination.

There are plenty of previous nominees who have yet to win, including Mayim Bialik ("The Big Bang Theory"), Anna Chlumsky ("Veep"), Gaby Hoffmann ("Transparent"), Jane Krakowski ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt") and Niecy Nash ("Getting On"). Hoffmann's co-stars Judith Light and Amy Landecker also had standout years, while HBO's "Girls" saw a resurgance in quality and could finally land one of the supporting actresses a nom.

Among the new shows, Donna Lynne Champlin stole scenes on The CW's "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and Noël Wells more than held her own opposite Aziz Ansari on the Netflix comedy "Master of None."
