And the Winner is . . . Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

Jesus F–ing Christ. Why do we even bother calling this Emmy Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series when it should just be called Outstanding Supporting Actor in Modern Family?

Honestly, I’m not going to do a big introduction. Let’s just announce the nominees.

  • Ed O’Neill as Jay Pritchett in Modern Family
  • Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Mitchell Pritchett in Modern Family
  • Ty Burrell as Phil Dunphy in Modern Family
  • Eric Stonestreet as Cameron Tucker in Modern Family
  • Max Greenfield as Schmidt in New Girl
  • Bill Hader as various characters in Saturday Night Live

At least Manny wasn’t nominated.

Don’t get me wrong–I LOVE Modern Family. I think it’s one of the sharpest, best written shows on television today with an excellent ensemble cast. That said, it’s just a BIT boring the way they dominate all the awards shows. I mean, YAWN! They’re like the 1960s Boston Celtics of TV, except less white!

Cameron is my favorite, but I actually think Jesse Tyler Ferguson gives a more nuanced performance. But then I get upset that Ed O’Neill never got the Oscar he so deserved for the movie Dutch. Maybe it’s his time?

I REALLY hope my mom gets me this VHS for Christmas!

Eh, maybe not. And then Phil won last year, so I’m eliminating him from consideration. So we’re left with Bill Hader and Max Greenfield, the Blanche Devereaux of New Girl.

Too bad Blanche has passed, otherwise you know she’d bring Schmidt to the Rusty Anchor.

I like both of them, but Schmidt is the best thing about New Girl, which is saying a lot because it is one of my favorite shows on tv this season and I have excellent taste.

So . . .

Who I Want to Win: Max Greenfield

Who Will Win: A male from Modern Family!

    Love Max, the best thing about “New Girl” (to me a minor but enjoyable hit or miss disappointment so far at least); I love the resurrection of Ed O’Neil’s career, just total vindication for all the Married With Children nay sayers; Ed, however, did get Golden Globe love at least for Married with Children – but would love to see a Sofia/Ed win this year — to match last year’s Julie/Ty win ….
