Will Jessica Walter follow in Megan Mullally's boozing Emmy footsteps?

On "Arrested Development," Jessica Walter plays Lucille, the hard-drinking, wisecracking socialite matriarch of the embattled Bluth clan. She earned a Best Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy nomination for the show's original Fox run in 2005, losing to another notorious TV mother, Doris Roberts ("Everybody Loves Raymond"), and Walter won an Emmy back in 1975 for the limited series "Amy Prentiss," but can she finally win for her "Arrested" role? Lucille is not unlike another boozy role that won multiple Emmys: "Will & Grace's" Karen Walker, played by Megan Mullally, Comedy Supporting Actress winner in 2000 and 2006.
