The 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series may look rather familiar. Other than William H. Macy being nominated for “Shameless” and Ricky Gervais getting a nod for “Derek,” the field is a repeat of last year.
Jim Parsons has earned his sixth nomination in the category for “The Big Bang Theory.” He’s turned that nod into a win four times, so far. Louis C.K. returns with his fourth nomination in a row for FX’s “Louie,” while Don Cheadle (“House of Lies”) and Matt LeBlanc (“Episodes”) were both recognized the third year in a row.
The real winner this year is Showtime, which earned three of the six nominations with “Shameless,” “House of Lies” and “Episodes.”
