In anticipation of the upcoming 63rd Annual EMMY Awards (Airing Sunday September 18th at 8PM on FOX, CTV in Canada) theTVaddict.com is proud [or not-so-proud depending on how things turn out] to once again present our GUARANTEED EMMY WINNERS 2011*
NOMINEES: Jon Cryer (TWO AND A HALF MEN), Chris Colfer (GLEE), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (MODERN FAMILY), Ed O’Neill (MODERN FAMILY), Eric Stonestreet (MODERN FAMILY), Ty Burrell (MODERN FAMILY)
SHOULD WIN: Ty Burrell, MODERN FAMILY
Whether he’s inadvertently prostituting his wife and daughter in an advertising campaign gone awry, or attempting to teach son Luke the finer points of the family business, Ty Burrell deserves to walk away with an Emmy for not just teaching us the literal ABC’s of real estate (“Always be closing don’t ever forget great home ideas just keep lurking mostly near by often people question realtors sincerity take umbrage violators will be….”), but for managing to keep us rooting for a somewhat cartoonish character that on almost any other show we’d have already tired of.
WILL WIN: Chris Colfer, GLEE
Suffice it to say, it’s not so much a question as to whether or not GLEE’s big breakout star will walk away with a little golden statue, but rather whether young Mr. Colfer will be able to find the time to squeeze a pitch-perfect acceptance speech into his already jam-packed schedule that has the multi-hyphenate actor/writer/producer juggling his GLEE duties with movie shoots, novel writing and television producing.
SNUBBED: Nick Offerman, PARKS AND RECREATION
Note to the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences: Don’t make us come down there and review Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness with you. Because we will.
