A month and a half after her death, Kathryn Joosten this morning landed her first supporting actress nomination for her role on Desperate Housewives. The ABC dramedy, which was a major Emmy contender early in its run and won best comedy series award for Felicity Huffman in its first year, earned two Emmy nominations for its final season.

Desperate Housewives narrator Strong is nominated in the voice-over category for a second consecutive year.
