Emmy Buzz

Even though it was announced last week that Battlestar Galactica did not make it to the Top 10 for Best Drama on the list of contenders to receive Emmy nominations, we did get some good news today.  The lovely Mary McDonnell has (finally) landed herself on the short list for Best Actress in a Drama.  The list, according to The Envelope, is as follows:

Patricia Arquette, “Medium” ( “Aftertaste”)
Glenn Close, “Damages” (“Pilot”)
Minnie Driver, “The Riches” (“Dead Calm”)
Sally Field, “Brothers and Sisters” (“History Repeating”)
Mariska Hargitay, “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” (“Undercover”)
Holly Hunter, “Saving Grace” (“Tacos, Tulips, Duck and Spices”)
Elisabeth Moss, “Mad Men” (“The Hobo Code”)
Mary McDonnell, “Battlestar Galactica” (“Faith”)
Kyra Sedgwick, “The Closer” (“Manhunt”)
Jeanne Tripplehorn, “Big Love” (“Take Me As I Am”)

Ballots to make the final list of nominees are due July 10, and Emmy nominations will be announced on July 17th.
