Emmy supporting acting races: The few, the proud …

SupportingIn today’s Variety Road to the Emmys coverage focusing on the supporting acting categories, Carita Rizzo looks at how the nominations are not exactly spreading the wealth among many shows.

…For the second consecutive year, Emmy juggernaut “Modern Family”
dominates with six supporting nods, which is 50% in the laffer category.
“Downton Abbey” has nabbed four for its mostly downstairs crew and the
indomitable Maggie Smith. “Breaking Bad” has earned three nods for its
supporters, and Emmy standards “The Good Wife,” “Saturday Night Live”
and “Mad Men” each have walked away with two.

Those noms are
well-earned, indeed, but having voters concentrating on those specific
shows means other series are being left behind. …

Elsewhere in the section, you can check out highlights from the nominees in drama supporting actor, drama supporting actress, comedy supporting actor and comedy supporting actress.
