    Just now, I was watching an old episode of “The Office”…episode 2.13 [“The Secret”] and wondering why on Earth John Krasinski was never nominated for an Emmy for the series.

    I just found out now that Krasinski is indeed an Emmy nominee, in 2013, as producer of the short-film online program “The Office: The Farewells.”

    “The Secret” plot: This episode pulled off one heck of a great reveal. After Jim confessed his crush on Pam to Michael, Jim became desperate to make sure Michael kept the secret to himself. (Michael himself noncommittally said he planned to stay mum ”for as long as I possibly can.”) All the while, another secret threatened to emerge: Oscar (Oscar Nuñez) was gay. The fact that the show was able to clue viewers in — while keeping volunteer sheriff’s deputy Dwight in the dark — was an inspired twist.

    He was simply overshadowed by Rainn Wilson. But I think a nomination for season 2 would have been deserved. I don’t love his performance as much as others in this forum apparently do.

    He should have won for the episode in which Jim proposes to Pam.  Thank goodness for his late producing credit.

    As for why he was never nominated, the academy just did not like the style of acting on The Office.  Jenna Fischer was nominated just once.  Yes, Rainn Wilson was in John Krasinki’s way, but Wilson was also only nominated three times in nine seasons.  Steve Carell never won.  And despite a perfect ensemble cast of unknowns, the show received just one casting nomination and never won the award.  It is unfortunate that the show in general was never beloved by the Emmys like 30 Rock.  Consider that Jack McBrayer and Margaret Cho got nominations.

     Margaret Cho got a nomination? I forgot about that….  Here’s my reaction:

    I was really hoping that Rainn Wilson would have won for the season 4 episode “Money” where he was very sad about Angela dumping him and Jim heard him crying and he lost to Jeremy Piven who played an asshole

    Was he submitted in supporting? He was really a lead, but then of course so was Jenna Fischer so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by the category fraud

    Yes, he submitted in supporting.

    He supported Steve Carell.

    Krasinski was stellar in the first two seasons of the show, but his signature glances to the camera just got beyond annoying by season 3, and so I stopped watching. Rainn Wilson is the true supporting player in that show, and he was rightly nominated a few times. He and Carell should both have Emmys by now. I’m surprised the Emmys even nominated Jenna Fischer once, considering there is nothing anywhere near showy about her role or performance, and that she’s the ‘straight man’ on the show. Quite astonishing that they went for her to be honest.

    He should have been nominated in seasons 2, 3, and his last season.
