Emmy Nomination Preview 2013 - Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

        Tuesday, June 25 - Earlier this month, the ballots were released for the contenders for the upcoming 2013 Emmy Awards. With nominations being announced on the morning of July 18, I'm going through all of the major categories and analyzing which performers are most likely to make the nomination list.

Nominees for the 2012 Emmy Awards
        Christine Baranski, The Good Wife
        Joanne Froggatt, Downton Abbey
        Anna Gunn, Breaking Bad
        Christina Hendricks, Mad Men
        Archie Panjabi, The Good Wife
        Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey

        This category is one of the few where all six nominees from last year are also eligible this year. It is going to be extremely difficult for any new blood to crack this tight list. Additionally, Parenthood's Monica Potter gave the performance of the year and yet her biggest hurdle is making it into the nominations. Here is how I think the chips will far this year.

NOTE: These rankings are how likely I think people are to be nominated NOT who is likely to win in September.
