Mary-Kate Olsen Officially Enters Emmy Race
Showtime has entered famous twin Mary-Kate Olsen as a nominee for the Emmys, a result of her 10-episode stint on Weeds. Olsen is entered in the best guest actress category, which could potentially set her up to run against Lindsay Lohan (scheduled to appear on Ugly Betty) and Britney Spears (How I Met Your Mother).
Submitting an Emmy nominee entry is no laughing matter. Each entry costs a few hundred dollars apiece, proving that Showtime has a lot of faith in their young guest actress. So far, neither Britney nor Lindsay have been entered into the race, though popular speculation assumes both will be in the near future.
Olsen appeared in two-thirds of the season’s episodes, portraying a hard-core Christian drug dealer. The role was Mary-Kate’s first major solo effort, as the actress has always routinely worked with sis Ashley. If Olsen is nominated, it will be her second turn at the Emmys. Mary-Kate was nominated, though Ashley was not, for her work on So Little Time. Two rounds of voting will determine whether or not Mary-Kate Olsen wins the nomination - and only then will she be a viable contender for the actual award.
