Jennifer Aniston frontrunner at the Emmys
Gold Derby founder Tom O’Neill told The Post that Aniston shouldn’t be underestimated.
“Don’t underestimate Aniston just because many prognosticators pick Laura Linney or Olivia Coleman to win. Don’t forget that Aniston won the SAG Award earlier this year and that has virtually the same voting system as the Emmys – only actors voting for actors,” he said.
“Aniston is having a triumphant career comeback that’s especially alluring to TV industry insiders. She portrays a reigning TV celebrity struggling to survive a crumbling, cruel world around her — the threat of younger, rising stars and her shock to discover the awful secrets and betrayals of the old regime,” he added.

But she can equally, after a moment’s thought, find a much more interesting, more truthful, much more touching way of playing a scene … when she spends more of her time with material that requires her to exercise other muscles, her really considerable gift as an actress will be more widely recognized,” he told Vanity Fair.
