Emmy Spotlight: Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

Jun 5, 2006  •  Post A Comment

Two contenders from last year’s race, Sandra Oh of ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and Emmy winner Blythe Danner of Showtime’s “Huff,” appear poised for another showdown, with the experts giving the edge to Ms. Oh this time around. TV writer Diane Gordon calls Ms. Oh’s character, Christina, “the anti-Meredith … which provides a very necessary balance within the show.” Adds critic Matt Roush, “She is the fiercest and funniest of the medical interns.”
