Edie Falco (‘Impeachment’) could earn 15th career Emmy nomination for playing Hillary Clinton

Edie Falco is an undeniable Emmy magnet dating back to 1999. The acclaimed actress earned six Emmy nominations for “The Sopranos,” winning three times, and another six for “Nurse Jackie,” winning once. She also scored a bid for her guest spot on “30 Rock” in 2008 and another lead acting nomination for “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders” in 2018. Now, she is hoping for her landmark 15th Emmy nomination for taking on the role of Hillary Clinton on “Impeachment: American Crime Story.”
