Mary-Kate Olsen might be an Emmy contender

Tbdmarykateolsen050908 In a turn of events that belongs under the definition of "didn't see that coming," Mary-Kate Olsen's name is being tossed around as Emmy fodder for her extended stay on the Showtime comedy Weeds.

The L.A. Times says the network will be putting up hundreds of dollars to enter her in a multi-round nominating process, which involves a popular vote by academy members to winnow the field to 10 finalists, then submitting a sample episode for consideration.

Olsen starred in 10 of this season's 15 episodes as druggie member of the god squad who has the hots for Hunter Parrish's character Silas. That stunt-casting sure goes a long way, doesn't it?
