For Your Consideration: Naya Rivera

Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy (Glee)
Glee is all over the place in terms of quality, but its cast includes a variety of really talented performers. Sadly not all of them are the ones who are on the clear track to Emmy nominations. I love Jane Lynch, but Sue is a pretty limited character, yet thanks to her sister's death, voila, guaranteed Emmy nod. Amber Riley's been denied good story lines this season, so I'm throwing my considerable weight (this means I'm fat, not influential) behind Naya first (Dot-Marie second, then the hysterical Heather Morris).

Rivera's gotten some fiercely funny scenes this year, but her pained yearning during "Landslide" puts all the stuff to shame. Naturally that scene isn't embed-able, so here's a scene I can relate to.

Now if Heather Morris (or one of her friends) reads this, she'll start a series of Fondue For Two webisodes (and she'll be involved in its production) since that's probably a quick way for her to get an Emmy without battling all her costars.
