Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty may get the majority of scenes and musical numbers on Smash, but NBC is only submitting Debra Messing’s name for Emmy consideration in the lead drama actress category. Hilty and McPhee’s names will go in for supporting actress consideration.

The Hollywood Reporter learned of the decision from a Smash representative, adding that the rest of the cast will compete in supporting categories.
