Weeds is a funny series, but it's also dark, strange and intense. The fact that Mary-Louise Parker continues to keep her performance funny and fresh while still making Nancy Botwin at least somewhat sympathetic is noteworthy indeed. Still, there are other ladies in this category whose performances stand out more drastically. This is Parker's third nomination for Weeds, but I'm not sure this third time's the charm. Chances of winning: Moderate.
