During the past couple of Mondays, we’ve been asking you to choose who you think should win Emmys in the major categories. This week, let’s take a look at the interesting field in the lead actor in a comedy category.
It’s interesting because it’s a combination of old friends, previous winners, new faces, and one longtime nominee who many think will get his first Emmy this year. That last one, of course, is Steve Carell, who closed out his role of Michael Scott on “The Office” in April with some of his best-ever work.
As we discussed recently, many think this is Carell’s year. But with two previous winners — Alec Baldwin for “30 Rock” and Jim Parsons for “The Big Bang Theory” — in the category, it might be difficult. Then there’s the presence of old Emmy friend Matt LeBlanc (“Episodes”) and two intriguing new possibilities in Louis C.K. (“Louie”) and Parsons’ co-star, Johnny Galecki, to consider. See? Lots of good choices in this category.
Who do you think will bring home the Emmy? Vote in the poll below. The 63rd annual Primetime Emmys, hosted by Jane Lynch, air live at 8 p.m. ET Sept. 18 on FOX.
