    I remember back in 2010 when I saw the episode of “The Office” “Secretary’s Day” I thought Ellie Kemper was so great she deserved an EMMY nomination. But the voters didn’t recognize her then. Anyone else agree or disagree with me that she earned a nomination way back then or for any season she was in “The Office”?

    No, I don’t think so. Much as I love Kemper, especially on Kimmy Schmidt, the writing was so messy on The Office by the time she joined the cast that it was all but impossible for any cast member to turn in Emmy-calibur work.

    Probably, but we had bigger problems then, namely Jenna Fischer only having been nominated once and John Krasinski never having been nominated.

    Or Steve Carell NEVER winning. Did Jim Parsons really have to win twice in a row at the expense of Carell never winning one! Curse Parsons’ great episode submission that year!

    Ellie Kemper should definitely be nominated for The Office.

    Secretary’s Day was a good episode, but her performance on Spooked, Christmas WishesPool Party, and Special Project was even better!

    I was never a big fan of the character or performance, though I’d take her over some of the people that did get in those years. But the ensembles of The Office and Parks and Rec were so under-nominated that Kemper’s snubs don’t really stand out. Would most even be looking at them as snubs if it weren’t for ‘Unbreakable’?
