The org behind the actors-celebrating-actors awards nominated just one thesp from a new fall skein — Christina Applegate from ABC’s “Samantha Who?” (pictured).
Cable series in their first year of eligibility fared a bit better with Glenn Close from FX’s “Damages”; Holly Hunter from TNT’s “Saving Grace”; and Jon Hamm from AMC’s brilliant rookie drama “Mad Men” all garnering noms, along with the ensemble for “Mad Men.”
One has to wonder how the networks would have fared sans stike-us interruptus.
And I gotta say it on behalf of the Season Pass panel. No love for “Friday Night Lights” sublime drama ensemble? REALLY?!
