CHICAGO — While stars from the coasts will be well-represented at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards next Monday, Illinois talent will be plentiful on the red carpet this year. Thanks to names such as Bob Odenkirk, Jane Lynch and Patricia Arquette, Illinois produced the third-most Emmy nominations of any US state, only behind New York and California. Over eight percent of this year's nominees hail from the Prairie State, including two nominations in the Guest Actress - Comedy category. Dolton native Jane Lynch, nominated for her role in "Only Murders in the Building", is competing against veteran actress Laurie Metcalf and her role in "Hacks" for the honor.
