Emmy Nominations and Predictions: Lead Actor/Actress Comedy

ACTOR, COMEDY SERIES:Alec Baldwin "30 Rock", Steve Carell "The Office", Jemaine Clement "Flight of the Conchords", Jim Parsons "The Big Bang Theory", Tony Shalhoub "Monk", Charlie Sheen "Two and a Half Men"
  • REACTION: Once again, I'm glad they honored Flight of the Conchords, but who would have expected this much love? A Best Actor nomination for Jermaine Clement? I think the first real shocker of the nominations. Great to see Jim Parsons in, despite The Big Bang Theory getting snubbed in the Comedy Series category. The rest are no-brainers. A Note: I use to love Tony Shaloub's character on Monk, now it's just starting to piss me off. It is constantly taking away nominations from other, well deserving actors like David Duchonvny.
  • SNUBS: Kyle Bornheimer "Worst Week", David Duchovny "Californication",
    Johnny Galecki "Big Bang Theory", Lee Pace "Pushing Daisies"
  • Winner: 30 Rock rules again, Alec Baldwin.

ACTRESS, COMEDY SERIES: Christina Applegate "Samantha Who?", Toni Collette "United States of Tara", Tina Fey "30 Rock", Julia Louis-Dreyfus "New Adventures of Old Christine" Mary-Louise Parker "Weeds", Sarah Silverman "The Sarah Silverman Program"
  • REACTION: It's nice to see the inclusion of the ever-hilarious Sarah Silverman, and the ever-talented Toni Collette. The rest are not suprises, although it seems the fascination with America Ferrara has ended (I still like her, but whatever). A Note on Julia Louis Dreyfus....I like her, but enough with the Emmy love. She could stare blankly into the screen for an entire episode, submit that one, and still get nominated...geez. Also, I think that Eva Longoria-Parker is the most underrated cast member of Desperate Housewives, and I think she was snubbed.
  • SNUBS: Marcia Cross "Desperate Housewives", America Ferrera "Ugly Betty", Teri Hatcher "Desperate Housewives", Felicity Huffman "Desperate Housewives", Eva Longoria-Parker "Desperate Housewives", Amy Poehler "Parks and Recreation"
  • Winner: Two Words: Tina Fey
