One of our newest forum posters, Aurel Graf, poses the provocative question: “Which Emmy contender are you really passionate about? Who really really deserves it this year in your opinion?” He kicks off the discussion by posting his picks across the comedy and drama categories.
Below, a selection of his choices as well as those of other posters. Have your say and add your own favorites here.
Drama Series: I really really want to see “The Good Wife” in this race, not just because it would be the only broadcast series but because I think they did a terrific job this season. I’m hoping “Boardwalk Empire” doesn’t get through and leaves the spot open for “The Good Wife.”
Drama Actor: William H. Macy really deserves a nomination this year! I just love him and Felicity Huffman together and I think he did a terrific job this year on “Shameless.”
Drama Actress: I’m rooting for Glenn Close to get nominated again for “Damages” The last episode, especially the last scene of season 4 was so superbly acted.
Comedy Series: “Community” and “Raising Hope”
Comedy Supporting Actress: Jane Krakowski (“30 Rock”) and Cloris Leachman (“Raising Hope”)
Comedy Supporting Actor: Nick Offerman (“Parks and Recreation”)
Comedy Actress: While I think getting multiple nominations will not be a problem, I feel most passionate about Amy Poehler winning an Emmy this year! I want Amy to win so bad and don’t really care what happens in any other category as long as she takes home an Emmy in September.
Movie/Miniseries: “Game Change”
Movie/Miniseries Actress: Julianne Moore (“Game Change”)
Movie/Miniseries Actor: Benedict Cumberbatch (“Sherlock”)
Movie/Miniseries Supp. Actor: Ed Harris (Game Change”)
