Emmy Watch 06: Lead Actor in a Comedy

In anticipation of the 2006 Emmy awards, theTVaddict crew will be predicting our Emmy Winners. Check beck regularly, as new categories will be posted throughout the coming weeks. Agree with our picks? disagree completely? think we take TV a little too seriously! Post your comments below.

Nominees (L to R): Steve Carell (The Office), Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Kevin James (King of Queens), Tony Shalhoub (Monk), Charlie Sheen (Two and a Half Men)

theTVaddict Predicts:

Who I Think Will Win: Steve Carell
Even though Emmy Voters have the unfortunate habit of giving the statue to Tony Shaloub (Sorry, I just don’t get him), Steve Carell is on far to a career high to be ignored.

Who I HOPE Will Win: Steve Carell
The success of THE OFFICE translating well across the pond rested on Steve’s shoulders – and he delivered. Thanks to his brilliance, we didn’t end up with another NBC Couplings disaster.

Who Was Snubbed: Zach Braff
While I’m happy SCRUBS finally got some Emmy love, it’s inexcusable that lead actor Zach Braff was ignored. He puts the heart into Sacred Heart.

Amrie Predicts:

Who I Think Will Win: Larry David
The Emmys love him!!!

Who I HOPE Will Win: Tony Shalhoub
Me and my OCD love MONK…(I wouldn’t mind terribly if Steve Carell won either).

Who Was Snubbed: Zach Braff/Jason Batemen
Zach Braff (Scrubs) and Jason Bateman (Arrested Development)….I cannot believe that they were left out, and Kevin James and Charlie Sheen were nominated….

Jenny Predicts:

Who I Think Will Win: Charlie Sheen

Who I HOPE Will Win: Tony Shalhoub
While I know The Office fans are rooting for Steve Carell, I couldn’t get into that show. Monk on the other hand is one of my summer favorites. Tony Shalhoub is PERFECT as a guy with a freakishly bad case of OCD. I also don’t hate Charlie Sheen & 2.5 Men like a lot of people, but I do hope Tony wins!

Who Was Snubbed: Zach Braff/ Jason Lee/ Tyler James Williams
Zach Braff (Scrubs), Jason Lee (My Name is Earl), Tyler James Williams (Everybody Hates Chris) I weep for Zach & Jason. Tyler James is great as little Chris, too.

  • It seems from your blog that you are just as upset the Emmy nominees as we are. At our website we have created a TV Fan Awards that allow you to choose who YOU want. If you could just do me a favor and look at it because it has nominated many of the actors/actresses and shows that were snubbed.
