We all have our lists of people we hope win this year.
But what if you got the opportunity to speak to the voters and campaign for ONE nominee. Just one – who would it be, and why?
I would ask them to consider Ricky Gervais – his sweet, sentimental and wonderful performance is a combination of comedy and drama and is very different to Gervais’ public personaJuly 29, 2014 at 1:43 am #326018
I would ask them to please bring back the individual performance in variety category so that we can stop people that were on “Saturday Night Live” from winning the guest categories. It should be actors from situation comedies winning those categories not people who are on or who hosted a sketch comedy show it is like comparing apples and orangesJuly 29, 2014 at 1:43 am #326019

Christine Baranski for The Good Wife!July 29, 2014 at 3:59 am #326022
Just one person? I would say Lizzy Caplan or Adam Driver.July 29, 2014 at 5:23 am #326023
I would try to convince them to give the highest rating to Allison Tollman (I think that’s how it works in those categories this year right ?).July 29, 2014 at 8:31 am #326024
I would definitely push Josh Charles. I actually think that he can win, and my campaign would be at least helpful to get the best performance and submission to win.July 29, 2014 at 10:07 am #326025
I love how Tony Dimeo did not read the OP’s post.
Anyway, I’d push for Josh Charles as well.July 29, 2014 at 11:16 am #326026
I would say this:
I know that there are some obvious favorites when it comes to some catagories but please keep Jesse Tyler Ferguson in mind.July 29, 2014 at 2:09 pm #326027
Josh Charles would actually be one of my big ones, too, and I say that as someone who thinks Dinklage and Paul would still be deserving repeat winners. Still, “Confessions” aside, this wasn’t my favorite season for Paul, and I don’t think Dinklage *needs* to win again, at this point. Charles really drove The Good Wife’s first half or so, and he went out in emotional glory.
If you want me to go for someone different, I’d say that it would be pleasant to campaign for Steve Buscemi. He’s been one of my favorite actors for the last several years, and Portlandia is a real treat of a show.July 29, 2014 at 2:15 pm #326028
To be a scene stealer in a cast that large who all have showier roles and to make it into the Emmy race despite not having a “name” is a tribute to her and I think she deserves to win.July 29, 2014 at 2:55 pm #326029
I would yell at them for not nominating Bellamy Young, even though it would probably make them a lot less receptive to my subsequent begging to give the emmy to Amy Poehler.July 29, 2014 at 5:43 pm #326030
Christine Baranski.July 29, 2014 at 6:36 pm #326031
I feel very strongly that Minnie Driver absolutely deserves to win Lead Actress in that field because she gave the most honest, moving, and heartfelt performance in that category. She was emotionally raw and captured the sense of loss of child. Tyson and Lange were so been there done that. Lange chewing scenery in a silly storyline? Carrie Watts trying to get back home? Haven’t seen that before! Minnie showed a new side of herself as an actress. She should get the reward.
I’ll be watching closely to see if the voters are watching the movies here. If they do I think Minnie can do it. Lord knows she deserves it. I cannot believe she is ranked as low as 5th in the odds in a field that weak. Guess performance means nothing! It’s all reputation!
