Emmy Predictions 2009: Outstanding Actor in a Comedy

In anticipation of Sunday’s EMMY Awards airing on CBS at 8PM, theTVaddict.com is proud [or not-so-proud depending on how things turn out] to once again present our GUARANTEED EMMY WINNERS 2009*


… but Tony Shalhoub. For the love of God, enough is enough!

Not only is Parsons universally recognized as one of the nicest actors in Hollywood, you try reciting the rules to Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock without laughing. We promise you, it can’t be done. We’ve tried.

Adorably nerdy, funny to boot, plus he knows kung fu! What’s not to love?

*theTVaddict.com does not guarantee his “winning picks.” Do not, I repeat, Do not bet the house, kids or family pet on them!

    Agreed. Agreed. Agreed. Monk is funny, but seriously Tony Shalboub has won enough already. Jim Parsons MAKES the BBT. His logic cracks me up every time. Does anyone else think he would get along really well with Brennan from Bones?

    I completely agree that Zachary Levi was robbed. Charlie Sheen hasn’t been funny since Hot Shots and even then… It’s also weird that they nominated Jermaine and not Bret; those boys come as a package.

  • Nick

    Question to voters: Shouldn’t the Emmy in this category go to the actor who consistently makes you LAUGH…and I mean, laugh HARD?

    Question #2: Then WHY is Charlie Sheen a nominee? Seriously.

    Question #3: Tony Shaloub has been nominated for this SEVEN straight years and won three Emmys. Really? You’re telling me that Tony Shaloub is the funniest actor in primetime? Seriously?

    Bottom Line: Only Parsons, Carell and Baldwin are worthy of this honor. They should split it. But since they won’t, Parsons has been amazing this year. Each week he seems funnier than the last.

  • Josh Emerson

    Jim Parsons is great, but there’s no way he should win over Alec Baldwin. And considering TBBT didn’t get nominated for overall Best Comedy, I don’t think he will.

  • Josh Emerson,

    While I’ll agree that Alec Baldwin is brilliant, one of the things that helps him be so is an unbelievably talented writing staff led by Tina Fey.

    Where Jim Parsons gets serious bonus points is for elevating what in the wrong hands could be some very cheesy jokes and one-liners.

    I’m giving this one to Baldwin. I’m no fan of TBBT and I think I’m supposed to be since I’m a nerd and I get all their science’y jokes.

  • TVFan

    Love Bladwin, but I’m going to agree with the TVA here. I’d win an Emmy winner with Tina Fey writing my dialogue.

  • Tim

    Baldwin for the win. There’s no 30 Rock w/ out him.

  • Stacy

    Jim Parsons

  • Vicks

    Alec Baldwin will take it again

  • Abe Froman

    Parsons all day.TBBT is consistently funny and I laugh out loud every time Parsons opens his mouth.

  • Vero

    Oh I am so hoping for Jim Parsons to win this!!
