A big comeback has eluded Winona Ryder since her 2001 shoplifting scandal, but Emmy recognition for her portrayal of the valiantly patient wife of Alcoholics Anonymous founder Bill Wilson could help to change that. There's reason for optimism. Emmy voters are a forgiving bunch. Charlie Sheen and Robert Downey Jr. once rallied from old scandals to reap Emmy nominations for Sheen's "Two and a Half Men" and Downey's guest turn on " Ally McBeal."
