Senior editors Chris Beachum and Rob Licuria discuss the potential Comedy Actor nominees in this video chat. They agree five-time also-ran Steve Carell is the sentimental favorite for his final season of "The Office" and actually has a knockout episode to submit to voters. And they think two-time champ Alec Baldwin (2008, 2009) from "30 Rock" and last year's winner Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") are all but certain to be nominated. Matthew Morrison ("Glee) could contend again as well.
With the absence of last year's contenders Larry David ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") and Tony Shalhoub ("Monk"), the category has room for newcomers. Among those jockeying for positions are: Matt LeBlanc ("Episodes"), Danny McBride ("Eastbound & Down"), Joel McHale ("Community") and Matthew Perry ("Mr. Sunshine"). And even four-time nominee Charlie Sheen (2006-2009) from "Two and a Half Men") could return to the race.
