    If “The Big Bang Theory” wasn’t on TV, who would have Jim Parsons’ four Emmys for the show?

    In 2010, I think it would have been Tony Shalhoub. The voters clearly liked him in this role and would have wanted to say goodbye. With all of his competition not submitting their best, it would have been a relatively easy win. Parsons would have been replaced by Charlie Sheen.

    In 2011, I think it would have been Matt LeBlanc. Voters clearly didn’t respond well to the character of Michael Scott, nor to Louis CK as an actor. With Alec Baldwin totally botching his submission that year and LeBlanc being somewhat due for recognition after years in the biz, they would have given it to him. Parsons would have been replaced by Rob Lowe for Parks and Recreation (who, let’s face it, could have won with “Flu Season”) and Galecki would have been replaced by Joel McHale who would have benefited from a weak slate.

    In 2013, it really would have been anyone’s game. CK had his best submission ever, but again, voters don’t seem to respond to his acting. Bateman was great in his episode but they didn’t like that season of Arrested Development. Don Cheadle could have won for being a movie star, or LeBlanc could theoretically have repeated. But I think it would have gone to Alec Baldwin as a way of saying goodbye, even if it wasn’t his best submission. Parsons would have been replaced by Jon Cryer, who, sadly, probably would’ve repeated.

    In 2014, I think Ricky Gervais would have squeaked it out. If not, then probably William H. Macy. This race was pretty unexciting. Parsons would have been replaced by Andy Samberg, who also could’ve won with the right episode. Or maybe the lead guy of Silicon Valley.

    I agree with Shalhoub in 2010 and LeBlanc in 2011. LeBlanc really was the only logical alternative knowing what we know about voters and their preferences in this category. I’m glad you mentioned Rob Lowe because even though he’s not a lead at all on Parks & Rec, if he was nominated that year he would have had an easy walk to the podium with “Flu Season.”

    I think LeBlanc would’ve repeated in 2013, though I stopped watching Episodes so I’m not familiar with his submission. I know Louis CK’s episode had that phenomenal ending scene, but I can’t imagine voters ever recognizing him for acting.

    2014 would have been Ricky Gervais. I’m stunned he lost in real life, even though it’s clear voters weren’t interested in rewarding any new blood (but hey, Gervais technically would’ve been a repeat winner too in the same vein as Allison Janney).

    I don’t think Jim Parsons is preventing the wins from becoming diversified. Alec Baldwin would have won all those years (bad submissions and all) with LeBlanc getting a win this year.

    Switch Macy for CK or Gervais and I totally agree.

    I don’t know what has to happen to prove that Derek is such a bad show the Emmys would not reward. It’s neither funny or dramatic enough to really care about. Gervais had no chance of winning at all unless people were name checking

    ’tis a matter of opinion. I personally thought Gervais was AMAZING in Derek. Heartfelt, funny and brilliant. The voters didn’t like him the best, which is why he didn’t win, but you can’t say if he won it was because of name-checking, because as we’ve already seen when he won this category before, they sometimes go for the better performance. Maybe you don’t like it, but a big viewership and wonderful reviews prove that many people do like it. A win was definitely not out of the question

    Anyway, back to the question:
    2010: Larry David. No doubt about it. It was the Seinfeld reunion episode, and I actually thought he’d win over Parsons in 2010. I am scared he never wins, as if he didn’t win with Seinfeld or Palestinian Chicken, he never will
    2011: Steve Carell. They would have just given him his goodbye hug 
    2013: Louis C.K.. They would have wanted to recognize C.K. somehow, and here would have been the best
    2014: Ricky Gervais

    Don Cheadle would’ve won a couple of them for sure.  Please, Ricky Gervais… for a “sitcom” that had a 6-episode season, vs 12 for House of Lies?

    Uh are you arguing that because Don Cheadle’s show has 12 episodes a year that it is better?  Because that is a really dumb argument. Quality is what matters to the voters and viewers not quantity. I would say the same to Julianna Marguiles after her comment in her speech.
