Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

The Nominees:

1. Chris Colfer "Glee"
2. Neil Patrick Harris "How I Met Your Mother"
3. Ty Burrell "Modern Family"
4. Jesse Tyler Ferguson "Modern Family"
5. Eric Stonestreet "Modern Family"
6. Jon Cryer "Two and a Half Men"

Should Win/Will Win: Eric Stonestreet "Modern Family"

Commentary: Now that Neil Patrick Harris has won an Emmy, I find it hard to believe that he will win this category as well, but it is definitely a possibility. Jon Cryer sneaked in a win last year, but it seems as if the Academy has gone sour Two and a Half Men, so hopefully he is one and done. Jesse Tyler Ferguson got in over his more deserving co-star Ed O'Neill, and his episode selection almost guarantees a loss. Chris Colfer could be a dark horse, if the other two Modern Family guys split votes, or if the Academy decides it likes Glee better. Then it comes down to those aforementioned boys. My gut tells me that Eric Stonestreet;s episode selection is strong enough for him to beat out the competition and avoid vote splitting to take the prize from Ty Burrell.
