Follow the bouncing Emmy contenders: Katey Sagal moves up, Calista Flockhart drops down

Sons of Anarchy-4

Emmy voters will spy lots of curious things on the ballot when voting commences Friday.

"Glee" star Cory Monteith has entered the supporting race rather than lead for the freshman season of this Fox hit comedy.

Moving up to lead drama actress status from supporting and hoping for their first nominations: Connie Britton ("Friday Night Lights"), Anna Gunn ("Breaking Bad") and Katey Sagal ("Sons of Anarchy").

Dropping down to supporting actress status from lead: Calista Flockhart ("Brothers and Sisters"), whose TV mom Sally Field landed lead bids for each of the first three seasons of the show, and Elisabeth Moss ("Mad Men"), a contender last year.

Inside HBO's Emmy campaign box, Cheryl Hines ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") is listed as shooting for the lead actress prize, but she recently changed her mind. She'll remain in the supporting race, where she has had two unsuccessful bids (2003, 2006). 

And Bob Odenkirk ("Breaking Bad") enters the supporting race rather than guest actor.
