Emmy Predictions 2011: Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series

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: Alec Baldwin (30 ROCK), Steve Carell (THE OFFICE), Louie C.K. (LOUIE), Johnny Galecki (THE BIG BANG THEORY), Matt LeBlanc (EPISODES), Jim Parsons (THE BIG BANG THEORY)

SHOULD WIN: Louie C.K., LOUIE
Mining his own life for laughs, being a divorced forty-something never seemed so funny.

WILL WIN: Steve Carell, THE OFFICE
While not exactly laugh-out-loud funny, Carell’s swan song on THE OFFICE was more than memorable enough to ensure his seven seasons spent at Dunder Mifflin culminates with a golden parachute of the heavy statue variety.

SNUBBED: Joel McHale, COMMUNITY
Dear Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, Don’t let the pleasing facade fool you. Under Joel McHale’s perfectly coifed hair and ridiculously toned body is one helluva funny actor. Signed, Dean Pelton.

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

    I just love that Louie CK was nominated.  I hated The Office this year.  As much as it would be nice to give Steve Carrell some praise for his total run, he doesn’t deserve it for this particular year.

  • Abby

    Agree about Joel McHale!  Playing a character so seamlessly makes it look easy but there are so many examples of actors who have tried and failed to prove otherwise.  Haven’t watched Louie so can’t judge.
