    Honestly Leblanc and Cheadle are mysteries at this point. They have been nominated more then once but probably because the years they have been nominated it was a weak field. This year you have new guys coming in. Anthony Anderson, Jeffrey Tambor, Billy Crystal, and Will Forte. Can Leblanc and Cheadle get in or will they miss out.

    My opinion. Episodes has showed more support so maybe Leblanc has a better chance but honestly I have no idea.

    Episodes got writing and directing last year, so LeBlanc is fine.  Then again, LeBlanc never got a SAG nomination for Episodes, but SAG dropped Cheadle this year, so he does not really have that edge anymore and that confirms that his popularity for this role has already peaked.

    The only other nomination that House of Lies has ever gotten is comedy art direction, so either the academy is watching House of Lies and does not really like it or they are ticking Cheadle off solely through name recognition.  At least we know that the academy actually likes Episodes.

    This will be Cheadle’s fourth nomination and I doubt that he has ever been in the top half of the category.  Four years is a long time to be nominated when people are not even necessarily watching your show.  Name recognition only gets you nominations for so many years, so he is very vulnerable.  Holly Hunter got two for Saving Grace; Betty White got two for Hot in Cleveland.

    There are too many semi-likely contenders this year all of a sudden. Cheadle at least is done. LeBlanc is one of a handful contenders for the “honour to be nominated” half, and he’s one of the likelier ones.

    The Emmys are obsessed with Matt LeBlanc and his show Episodes. Personally, I don’t see it, but expect him to come back this year!

    If someone gets snubbed it’ll be Don, but both are getting in unless Anthony Anderson surprises.

    Episodes was great this year. They have been nominated for LeBlanc and Writing for all three previous seasons plus Directing last year. Showtime has managed to get these people to get interested on this show more than they do regular viewers, I doubt this is the year they’re dropped, when again, it was great. And that category is always boring and in need of contenders.

    If anything they should up their nominations with recognition for Kathleen Rose Perkins. But of course it won’t happen.

    Don Cheadle was recognized because of who he is, that only gets you so far. I think he’ll be snubbed.

    Will Forte and Anthony Anderson are long shots that could pay off but the voters don’t embrace new stuff that quickly. The Comedians got mixed reviews so I have doubts about Billy. Name recognition will only get a person so far. They did not embrace Michael J Fox or Robin Williams for their new shows. Andy Samberg was not embraced after winning the Golden Globe. I doubt they would nominate him just because he is hosting the awards ceremony. They keep going back to Cheadle and LeBlanc and I think they will again.

    She actually only got one.

    Both are pretty mediocre so let’s hope not. Although, who are we kidding? Jim Parsons won like a million times, so it’s not like the Television Academy have a problem with mediocre actors and even more one-note mediocre performances.

    I feel like LeBlanc has deserved it every year he’s been nominated. He especially deserves it this year too. This role is better than his role on Friends, and he is the source of almost all of the show’s comedy. Haven’t watched House of Lies outside of Cheadle’s submissions, so I can’t make a good analysis of his performance. His tapes haven’t been especially impressive to me, and he obviously wouldn’t be in my personal lineup. Parsons, C.K. and Tambor are really the only true locks in my opinion, and then Matt and Don are probably 4th and 5th most likely. Macy is still a question mark, but I expect there’s still love for him. I don’t see him or Don missing out and certainly not both. That suggests to me that there’s maybe one open spot that I would personally fill with Anderson, but would likely go to Crystal because of his name recognition. I’m still saying that Tambor will be the only new face in the lineup, replacing Gervais.
