In this Yahoo article "The 2011 Emmys: Who Will Win, Who Should Win, and Why", I saw the first time that Kristen Wiig was ever predicted to win an Emmy, and the reason is pretty funny. Observe...
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
Nominess: Jane Lynch ("Glee"), Betty White ("Hot in Cleveland"), Julie Bowen ("Modern Family"), Sofia Vergara ("Modern Family"), Kristen Wiig ("Saturday Night Live"), Jane Krakowski ("30 Rock")
Who Will Win: Kristen Wiig
Who Should Win: Kristen Wiig
Why: "Bridesmaids." ‘nuff said.
That's kind of funny, because I've mostly seen Jane Lynch as the obvious winner in other Emmy predictions. Jane won the award for the same category last year, so I hope they give Kristen a chance! This is Kristen's third Emmy nomination for supporting actress on SNL (three in a row), and she hasn't won yet!
More explanation for this is given elsewhere in the article with statements like this:
Everyone, including Academy members, is over "Glee"
In other SNL news, they think Amy Poehler should win for Parks and Rec lead actress (but won't).
