Who will Emmys snub for Best Comedy Actor?

Our forum poster efficiency began a delicious debate about the Best Comedy Actor category at this year’s Emmys. As he notes,

“It seems there are some overwhelmingly strong frontrunners (Alec Baldwin, Larry David, Jim Parsons & Louis C.K.) It seems that new-to-the-race Don Cheadle, former supporting actor favourite Jon Cryer and last year’s surprise nominee Johnny Galecki will fill in the gaps … but which one will miss out come nomination morning?

Or will someone else steal the limelight and surprise us all? The very funny Will Arnett or the even funnier Joel McHale? Could Adam Scott ride the “Parks & Recreation” train to nomination success? Or will Ashton Kutcher get in on name value? Or at a stretch, could some of you be tipping long shots Tim Allen, Rob Lowe or Matthew Morrison?

For Morgan Henard,

“It’s a sad world when Jon Cryer is safer in an acting category than Don Cheadle. But one thing I’ve learned, always predict Jon Cryer. And Mariska Hargitay. Oh, and Ellen Burstyn. If any of those three are on an Emmy ballot, BAM. They’re gonna be nominated.”

And says Boidiva02,

“I think everybody is over ‘Two and a Half Men’ at this point; it’s not even the highest rated traditional comedy anymore. I also think ‘House of Lies’ simply isn’t a big enough show to get in right now. Showtime has bigger shows to promote and I doubt this one even registers that much.”
