Emmys 2012: The Supporting Comedy Actor Race in Review, Including Our Dream Nominees

Expect the men of Modern Family to once again take up four slots in this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series battle, leaving just two openings.

We’ll find out who’s in the running when the nominations are announced July 19.

  • “Tony Hale, ‘Arrested Development’” But he’s not eligible this year.

      • That leaves me with a question: with AD being aired on Netflix and all, not on a network, will the 4th season be eligible for the Emmy next year?

  • I’m REALLY hoping the entire male adult Modern family cast don’t simply get a pass again this year. Only Ty Burrell should get a nomination this year.
    Would love to see some Community guys, Max Greenfield and Nick Offerman get some Emmy love!

    • Disagree. I think Ed O’Neill deserves a nom as well. His episode where he dances with Lily was so heartwarming and well done.

      Also, my favorite moment of the ENTIRE season was from the Disneyland episode when he told the story of how he decided to stay and be a father to Claire and Mitchell… and then Gloria yells down about the hot tub and with a smile he says, “And the universe rewarded me.” I was laughing so hard, but it was also just such a personal moment for his character that shined a light on who he is and what he believes in.

    • Correction, Glee is not getting any Emmy nominations this year and rightly so.

      (I actually loved Chris’ work this year, but it’s not comedy)

      • Except this is the “Supporting Actor” section, so my comment still stands. I don’t care how much you loved his work, he’s not getting one, rightfully so.

        • Chris deserves this nomination, not win because Glee overall has gotten unwatchable (what are writers thinking??!) for me, I only liked Kurt and Klaine parts, but they can’t be compared to S1-2, mainly because there wasn’t enough of him, he was just props to Rachel. Next season I heard he won’t be on much, so I hope at least he gets this nomination, and only him. Maybe glee writers and FOX learn something (hello glee lost like 4-5 million viewers this season?
          I’m not here for Rachel Berry featuring Finchel Show

          • Your argument is ironic considering kurt/klaine and the all they gay drama from s2 is what killed this show. The Rachel/Finchel show was the best this show ever was s1. He’s not getting the nomination, try not to cry when it happens. Freaks like you are way too invested in this show.

            Comment by Russel – June 12, 2012 08:25 AM PDT  
          • Chris Colfer deserves an Emmy but once again, not for the comedy category. This past season of Glee was 100% better than Season2.

            Comment by Ally – June 13, 2012 12:28 AM PDT  
          • wtf??? The whole season was about Finchel.

            Episodes centered around Klaine: TFT and DWS.

        • Well, aren’t you just a ball of sunshine… Colfer shouldn’t be nominated because too much of the script was drama, but that’s a bummer because he’s a brilliant actor and if he had more comedy moments I think he would definitely earn a nomination.

          • Chris Colfer’s work was amazing, however Glee has lost it’s focus, the storylines are nonsense, so I think the plot is lost. Great cast, bad show

            Comment by Marie – June 12, 2012 02:33 PM PDT  
          • To make it clear what you just said: “Colfer shouldn’t be nominated” > “because he’s a brilliant actor”, “too much of the script was drama” > “if he had more comedy moments I think he would definitely earn a nomination”. You have basically just admitted that yes, the show is nowadays less comedy than other options, but no, that is not Colfer’s fault. Many of the scripted lines that Kurt did have were, yes, dramatic and not very “gleeful”, but some of them were. Let us not forget the actual start of the season, some of the minor lines and his performance in general, in a so-called “comedy show” (which even I can agree on has lost its touch). Colfer has basically no say whatsoever about his lines, therefore you all should put the blame on the writers. Colfer’s performance however was outstanding, says I who always is very critical. No, perhaps he was not the greatest, and I have by no means watched all of the other shows (just a few) but keep in mind that Colfer’s acting was, at least in my opinion, one of the better ones in the show, and did have a few comedy moments. Yes, he should be nominated, at the very least. He does not have to win, though.

        • Chris was not given very good material this year, and I will understand if he is not nominated this time. Good scripts are important. The fact that he is consistently better than his material doesn’t change that. Possibly, if Glee gets no nominations at all, the writers will sit down and think about what they’ve done here. However, I think it is possible to be a little more tactufl in the way you approach discussing this particular situation.

      • Glee is a comedy show right but Chris Colfer is an actor talented in anyway like comedian, drama or singer, this year show us his different faces, this nomination he deserves for a magnifican scene in Choke, Goodbye or Whitney tribute.

        Comment by Guadalupe Pérez – June 29, 2012 09:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

    • Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet portray multi-layered gay characters. Chris Colfer plays a stereotype one-dimensional gay character. And this season his sad sack character seemed to drag down every scene he was in. No, he should not get a nomination this year,

      Comment by David – June 12, 2012 07:30 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Colfer brings quite a bit of dimension to his character (more than most on the show get, though he gets a lot of favours from the writing), but the quality level on Glee has gotten so poor by this point that he really shouldn’t be nominated, despite his effort.

        Comment by Sean C. – June 12, 2012 08:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • @David Hello Kerrie!!!! I see you’re spamming your Chris hate again. You saying constantly that you think Chris is a bad actor is not going to make it true. Chris is the best actor on the show. Glee itself was extremely badly written this season, but Chris, Mike, Cory, Lea, and Max all managed to make the most of what they were given, especially Chris. You say he dragged down every scene he was in, yet the critics praised his performances in every scene he was in, and in many they felt that his performances of particular scenes were EMMY worthy. He is a phenomenally talented actor and you, Kerrie, need to get professional help. Your hate obsession with Chris is really eating you up.

        Comment by RB – June 14, 2012 03:31 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree, but only because I don’t think anything from Glee should be nominated this year. Chris Colfer’s work was as great as ever but all the storylines and dialogues were stupider than ever on the show (that’s seriously saying something

I’ll also root for Aziz Ansari, Jack McBrayer, Bill Hader and Damon Wayan’s Jr., but… Nick Offerman should just win everything in all of life.

    • but isn’t he like male lead?, even if he is supportive character Chris Colfer outshines him in every scene.
      sry but I don’t buy Cory acting at all. he is just so boring.

      Comment by Katzzz – June 12, 2012 08:15 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • He really is the male lead, but he submits supporting; the show continues the silly notion that Matthew Morrison is the male lead, even though that hasn’t been true since the first half of season one.

        Comment by Sean C. – June 12, 2012 08:29 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Contrary to popular belief, Matthew IS the male lead of Glee, the whole story of the series centered around his character (a teacher reviving the glee club and helping to make it what it once was)

          Comment by Stephanie – June 12, 2012 09:19 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • That’s only in theory. In practice his role in most episodes is “whiteboard guy”. Finn and Kurt both get more to do than him.

            Comment by Sean C. – June 12, 2012 09:37 AM PDT  
      • The character is literally the straigtman to many of the flamboyant characters, but watch him react in the finale scenes. He is so subtle but really conveys emotional depth.

        Comment by Sam – June 12, 2012 10:34 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Cory is a good actor and one of the strongest on the show, but I agree, Chris Colfer outshines him in every scene they’re in together. Mind you, Chris is a standout on that show and shines in every scene he’s in, but Cory, although he’s not as good an actor as Chris Colfer, he is certainly a great actor and will hopefully get a lot of work once he leaves the show.

        Comment by Masie – June 14, 2012 03:41 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Many critics noted that it was Cory Monteith rather than Chris that stood out in the finale scene opening letters from colleges. As the character Ryan Murphy identifies with, Kurt is usually given meatier material but in the nuanced moments of the finale like that mentioned, the reaction shots during Shue’s song and of course the knock-out parting scenes, Monteith showed that given material where he is not just servicing other characters storylines he is a powerful actor.

          • @ gn Well, I don’t know which critics you were reading, but none of the ones I read said that. They spoke about the final scene between Finn and Rachel, But in the letter scene, all three were praised especially Chris and Cory, but no one said Cory was best in that scene.The final scene was great from Cory, however, but not EMMY standard by either Cory or Lea.

            Comment by Jonathan Roberts – June 16, 2012 06:28 AM PDT  
    • Agreed. How can TV line say Lea Michele should get a nom as much for the train station parting scene but not Cory Monteith who was outstanding. And that is not the first time this season, there was finding out about his father and when Will confronted him about his future. He brings such emotion and depth to what could otherwise be a two dimensional character.

  • I’m sort of tired of the Modern Family juggernaut every year and hope the Emmy folks get tired of them soon. But we all know the Emmys do the same roll out every year because they are lazy. I personally would like to see the guys from Parks and Rec, Community and New Girl get some Emmy love (and Chris Colfer but his material was too dramatic), but it will probably be the Modern Family guys plus NPH (to replace Jon Cryer who is now in the lead actor category) and Tony Hale just to give HBO a nod.

    Comment by Leo – June 12, 2012 07:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • While it’s true they all have their moments, they don’t all have enough of them to warrant continued nominations. Ty Burrell is the absolute stand out and I’d have to say that Ed O’ Neill has really stepped it up and also deserves a nod. Ferguson and Stonestreet are good but not more so than a number of others who should get the nomination.

  • What a crowded field this year. There are so many additional actors that could easily be included, and just about all of these potential nominees would worthy of winning.

    With that said, JVDB is outstanding in his show. His scenes at the wedding and with the young lady from Mad Men were phenomenal.

    Ed O’Neil in the two scenes previously mentioned (Dance and Reward) was awesome.

  • This was tough. I dislike the foursome of Modern Family pretty much automatically taking up 4 slots when there is so much talent in this field.

    Went with Ty Burrell, Don Glover, NPH, Nick Offerman, Adam Pally, and Dani Pudi.

  • All my votes went to Community and Parks. There are way too many deserving actors in this race. What does it take to get the nominations ballot up to around 10? As much as I love New Girl, Happy Endings, and Modern Family they can’t catch the love and respect I have for Community and Parks.

  • If Zooey is a lock, then why isn’t Greenfield? His character is the breakout star of the TV season, let alone their show.

  • As much as I love Nick Offerman, for this season, I’d say Chris Pratt is more worthy than any of the Parks & Rec men. This was his best season yet and his physical comedy is unparalleled. Andy made me laugh more than anyone else on TV this year. I’d love to see him get nominated.

    How about some Psych love?

  • Tony Hale is so sweet on Veep. Of course he’s not going to get nominated, but the way his relationship with Selina went from her looking at him like a weirdo, to the person who knows what she wants even when she doesnt know what she wants (ice cream) was brilliant.

  • The entire cast of Parks and Recreation and Simon Helberg. I love Modern Family, but its time for some new blood.

  • I’ll need an explanation for why Nick Offerman is not included in your dream nominees. Thanks.

    • I was thinking the same thing. Thought for sure he’d be one.

  • Chris Colfer is an amazing actor, but I don’t think he should get nomination. His best performance in this season was the episode On My Way and it was drama, not comedy.

  • max greenfield, donald glover, chris pratt and nick offerman are my top dream nominees. this category is full of great talent so narrowing down the last 2 spots is hard!
