Emmy Picks For Best Comedy Actress, Supporting Drama Actor Leak Out

Hot on the heels of the short list for top ten comedies and dramas announced last week, word is leaking out on who's in the running for best comedy actress, and supporting drama actor -- even though the Academy made a point to announce last week that the acting lists would not be disclosed.

And the short lists do hold a few surprises. For starters, comedian Sarah Silverman (photosSarah Silverman photos) made the top ten for best comedy actress for the first time with 'The Sarah Silverman Program', while Teri Hatcher was notably snubbed after all three of her 'Desperate Housewives' costars Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria (photosEva Longoria photos) made the list.

On the drama side, last year's Emmy winner and 'Lost' actor Terry O'Quinn didn't even make the short list. Although co-stars Michael Emerson and Naveen Andrews did manage to earn a spot.
