    Hi,
    everybody! I don’t comment much around these boards, but I’ve been a Goldderby
    reader for years now, and just like you I love Emmy time. Like I’ve been doing
    for the past few years, I’m going to share with you my own personal awards,
    which is basically who I think should’ve been nominated and who should win the
    Emmys this Sunday. Since I don’t live in the US and can’t watch many
    miniseries/TV movies, talk shows and variety shows, I only consider drama and
    comedy shows.

    Unfortunately, this year I didn’t have the time to watch all the
    shows I love, especially two of the best drama series of the last few years:
    Southland (which actually won the VATO for Outstanding Drama Series in 2011)
    and Justified (which got 5 VATO nominations last year, including Outstanding
    Drama Series). It’s a real shame, but I hope you like my other picks.

    I’m going
    to post the nominees in a few minutes and will be announcing the winners until
    the end of the week, before the Emmy ceremony. Feel free to comment! 🙂

    OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES
    Jenna Fischer for playing Pam Halpert on The Office

    Previous winners:
    2012: Julie Bowen for playing Claire Dunphy on Modern Family
    2011: Sofia Vergara for playing Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on Modern
    Family

    2010: Jane Lynch for playing Sue Sylvester on Glee
    2009: Jenna Fischer for playing Pam Beasley on The Office
    2008: Jaime Pressly for playing Joy Turner on My Name is Earl

    I decided to nominate seven actresses in this category, because the
    Emmys also did it. “The Middle” has been losing over the years some of the
    qualities that made the show so special in the beginning (receiving a
    nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series for the first season), but Eden Sher
    continues to shine in this role. It’s impossible to deny her talent and perfect
    comedic timing in this role. And I think the critics agree with me, since she
    won the Critics’ Choice Award for this category. The character of Carol Rance
    didn’t look that interesting in the first season of “Episodes”, but the writers
    changed that this year. The show’s second year was not as successful as its first,
    but Kathleen Rose Perkins was impeccable on it. A really beautiful performance,
    both hilarious and charming. A shame people didn’t recognize her for that.

    Out of the actual Emmy nominees, Jane Krakowski is the one who really
    deserves to win. After seven successful seasons as Jenna, she really deserves
    it. But the reason why I’m not giving this to her is because I don’t think this
    was her best season on the show. She came very close of winning last year, but
    it was Julie Bowen’s year. This time around, she had many great moments, but
    nothing that can be compared to the other four ladies remaining. As for Alison
    Brie, this is her second nomination for “Community”. She’s one of the show’s
    biggest assets and this year she gave the best performance from the cast. But I
    think the creative problems that affected the show made me put her on 4
    th
    place…

    6 months ago, I had never seen “Happy Endings”. But then, I catch a
    marathon on a cable network and I was hooked. One of the most brilliant and hilarious
    shows on television, that was criminally cancelled this year. It’s really a
    travesty that we’re not going to see this people ever again, and that this
    amazing cast will never get the recognition it deserves. Casey Wilson was
    Emmy-worthy from the pilot to the series finale, but Eliza Coupe was truly the
    one who shined this season.

    And, finally, the big winner. And the first actress ever to repeat in this
    category. “The Office”’s last season had a lot of problems, but Jenna Fischer
    (and Rainn Wilson, for that matter) really carried the show. She nailed the
    funny moments Pam was involved (even if it weren’t that many), but was the
    dramatic ones that made me pick her as the winner. The Brian-storyline and the
    problems with Jim (John Krasinski was also amazing) really showed us what a
    gifted actress Fischer is. I’m going to miss Pam. I’m going to miss Dunder
    Mifflin and the rest of the gang. And I’m really going to miss “The Office”.

    OUTSTANDING
    SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES

    John Noble
    for playing Dr. Walter Bishop on Fringe

    Previous
    winners:
    2012: Peter
    Dinklage for playing Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones

    2011: Denis
    O’Hare for playing Russell Edgington on True Blood

    2010: Terry
    O’Quinn for playing John Locke on Lost

    2009: Aaron
    Paul for playing
      Jesse Pinkman on
    Breaking Bad

    2008:
    Zeljko Ivanek for playing Ray Fiske on Damages

    “The
    Americans” was definitely one of the best new dramas of the season. A
    well-written show, well-directed and with an outstanding ensemble. I didn’t
    really know Noah Emmerich before this, but his performance was as good as
    Russell’s, Rhys’ and Martindale’s. He definitely should’ve been nominated for
    an Emmy for his sometimes calm and sometimes explosive work as Stan. As for
    Jonathan Banks, he was another surprise this season. I’ve always liked Mike,
    but the attention and importance he got in the first half the final season made
    me care for him even more. And Banks was very effective portraying this man.
    The fact that I think he should be the lone nominee from the show in this
    category this year (I love Aaron Paul, he’s a former winner in this category, but
    I wasn’t much impressed with his work this time around) says a lot.

    “Hannibal”
    had a slow start, but by the middle of the season I was hooked. Before the show
    started, I was really reluctant towards Mikkelsen: can he be successful portraying
    such an iconic character as Hannibal Lecter? And the truth is that he was. We
    immediately forget about Hopkins’ version and we immediately start believing
    that Mikkelsen really is Lecter. A very haunting and disturbing performance,
    that unfortunately wasn’t remembered by Emmy voters. As for Mandy Patinkin, he
    finally deserves to be here. I always enjoyed him as Saul, but last year I didn’t
    find him Emmy-worthy. But this time around, he proved me wrong. Saul’s presence
    on the show is as important as Carrie’s or Brody’s. And Patinkin gave a
    terrific performance in here. He would’ve been a very worthy winner.

    From the
    first time we met Gyp Rosetti, I was speechless about Bobby Cannavale’s
    performance. It’s one of the best of the year, and if it was up to me, he
    should win the Emmy tomorrow. He was creepy as hell, a very violent and
    haunting character, that was also very effective when given more comedic punch-lines.
    I was sad to see (yet another terrific character from “Boardwalk Empire”) him
    gone by the end of the season, but Cannavale should be proud of the work he’s
    done. It was very difficult to me to decide between him and John Noble.

    But
    ultimately, I picked Noble. After five seasons, I think he really deserves
    this, finally winning this category after 3 nominations. As we said goodbye to
    the “Fringe” universe, Noble’s performance as Walter was as perfect as ever:
    touching, intense, funny and always outstanding. Thank you very much, Mr.
    Noble, for creating one of the best television characters of the decade.

    OUTSTANDING ENSEMBLE CAST IN A DRAMA SERIES
    Shameless
    (Justin Chatwin; Joan Cusack; Ethan Cutkosky; Bernardo de Paula; Stephanie Fantauzzi; Noel Fisher; Emma Greenwell; Harry Hamlin; Shanola Hampton; Steve Howey; Emma Kenney; Ed Lauter; Kristopher Logan; William H. Macy; Jake McDorman; Michael Patrick McGill; Zack McGowan; Cameron Monaghan; Kerry O’Malley; Emmy Rossum; Jeremy Allen White; Laura Slade Wiggins)

    Previous winners:
    2012: The cast of Mad Men
    2011: The cast of Friday Night Lights
    2010: The cast of The Good Wife
    2009: The cast of Brothers & Sisters
    2008: The cast of In Treatment

    There are
    many wonderful ensembles that could’ve been here, but this six casts really did
    an outstanding job this year. Both “Homeland” and “Breaking Bad” have really
    impactful lead stars, but the actors surrounding them contribute for the success
    of the shows. And I just love the cast of “Parenthood”. You can feel that they’re
    almost like a real life family, making you care for this people. Then there is
    last year’s winner, the cast of “Mad Men”. This wasn’t the show’s best 
    season, but still is one of the strongest
    dramas on television, and part of that is because of the chemistry of this
    talented cast.

    But this
    had to go to either “Game of Thrones” or “Shameless”. The HBO drama has
    probably the largest ensemble ever on television. It can’t be easy to direct so
    many actors in so many different places, but they do it. And even with so many
    storylines occurring almost at the same time, you can also appreciate the
    strong performances from every actor involved. But I decided to pick “Shameless”
    instead. As you can see, I like ensembles with great chemistry, and this cast
    really works well together. Like I said about the Bravermans, you feel that the
    Gallaghers are a real dysfunctional family, and the actors make you care about
    them. Aside from one or two people, this is another show where every single
    actor involved amazes you with their talent, especially Emmy Rossum, William H.

    OUTSTANDING ENSEMBLE CAST IN A COMEDY SERIES
    Parks and Recreation
    (Aziz Ansari; Rashida Jones; Rob Lowe; Nick Offerman; Jim O’Heir; Aubrey Plaza; Amy Poehler; Chris Pratt; Retta; Adam Scott)

    Previous winners:
    2012 & 2011: The cast of Modern Family
    2010: The cast of Community
    2009: The cast of The Office
    2008: The cast of 30 Rock

    It’s the first win ever for “Parks and Recreation”. And a deserved one. The good acting
    on the show is not only guaranteed by recurring nominees Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman. Every single actor on the show delivers strong and hilarious performances every single week. And like I said in the Drama Ensemble category, I enjoy a cast that works well together, and the “Parks and Recreation” ensemble is another great example of outstanding chemistry. As for the other nominees, “Happy Endings” came very close of taking this one, as did “Modern Family” (it wasn’t a good season for the show, but the cast continues to deliver). The great chemistry between the Hecks is one of things that keeps me watching “The Middle”, and “The Big Bang Theory” and “Veep” are also very worthy nominees.
