Emmys 2012: Nominees for Oustanding Lead Actress in a Drama
This is Close's fourth Emmy nomination for playing fearsome New York attorney Patty Hewes on DirectTV's Damages. Although the veteran actress has already taken home two Emmys for starring in the legal drama, Damages is wrapping up its final season -- and what better way to send off Patty Hewes than with an Emmy? However, some Emmy voters -- and viewers -- might think it's about time someone else took home the golden statue. Emmy chances: Slim.
