Emmy Nominations Made Easy: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

With the June 28th deadline to return Emmy nominee ballots fast approaching, many of your favorite television web sites have begun to make their case for a handful of worthy 2012 nominees. Not to be outdone, we here at theTVaddict.com have decided — as we are wont to do — to take things one step further. Which is to say, in a completely altruistic effort to simplify things for the voting body that is the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, your friendly neighborhood TV Addict has decided to save those lucky enough to call themselves “Emmy Voters” from countless hours spent needlessly scrolling through a seemingly never ending PDF of worthy performers by presenting our “Emmy Nominations Made Easy!” With today’s focus being on our picks for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

[760] Eden Sher: Despite flying somewhat under the comedic radar in stark contrast to many of her fellow Emmy hopefuls, Sher doesn’t just get points for her hilarious and heartfelt portrayal of MIDDLE child Sue Heck, but for being one of the few teenage characters on television to actually act her age!

[777] Casey Wilson: Since tumblr has yet to create an award show of their very own for Wilson’s workman like ability to turn any line of dialogue or physical action into an automatic , an Emmy nod will have to do. a
