Yep, you read it correctly–there is a three-way race for best supporting actress.  Who do you think will win that one?  Personally, I think it’s a travesty that John Carroll Lynch wasn’t nominated for his portrayal of the tragic serial killer Twisty the Clown.  How do you feel about the incomparable Frances Conroy being left out?  And Naomi Grossman, who brought us to tears with her daring performance as Pepper.

What do you think of the Emmy nominations?  Was anyone left out?  Who are you pulling for?
