The 63rd annual primetime Emmy Awards will honor the best in television this Sunday hosted by everyone’s favorite tracksuited terrorizer of Glee kids, Jane Lynch. Earlier we asked you to vote on your favorites to take home the shiny, sharp awards. Now we’ll compare your poll results to our picks for the winners.
Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
Jane Lynch – Glee Jane Krakowski – 30 Rock Julie Bowen – Modern Family Sofia Vergara – Modern Family Kristin Wiig – Saturday Night Live Betty White – Hot in Cleveland
My Pick:Sofia Vergara Look, I love Jane. I’ve loved Jane forever. I want Jane to win all the awards, always. But this wasn’t really Sue Sylvester’s season. Instead, I have to go with Sofia. I still pee myself a little when I think about Gloria asking Claire to taste her cupcakes.
Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
Jesse Tyler Ferguson – Modern Family Eric Stonestreet – Modern Family Ty Burrell – Modern Family Chris Colfer – Glee Ed O’Neill – Modern Family Jon Cryer – Two and a Half Men
You Picked: Chris Colfer
My Pick: Chris Colfer Kurt Hummel is perhaps the world’s best “It Gets Better” video possible.
Lead Actress in a Comedy Series
Laura Linney – The Big C Edie Falco – Nurse Jackie Amy Poehler – Parks & Recreation Melissa McCarthy –Mike & Molly Martha Plimpton – Raising Hope Tina Fey – 30 Rock
You Picked:Tina Fey
My Pick:Tina Fey I will never, ever not pick my Fake TV Wife. But – big but – if she were not to win I would want her BFF Amy Poehler to take it home. Leslie Knope for President!
Lead Actor in a Comedy Series
Matt LeBlanc – Episodes Jim Parsons – Big Bang Theory Steve Carrell – The Office Johnny Galecki –Big Bang Theory Louis C.K. – Louie Alec Baldwin – 30 Rock
You Picked:Jim Parsons
My Pick:Alec Baldwin I confess, I don’t watch The Big Bang Theory so I can’t judge Jim Parsons. But regardless I will always be on the side of someone who encourages people to get “business drunk.”
Lead Actress in a Drama Series
Elisabeth Moss – Mad Men Connie Britton – Friday Night Lights Mariska Hargitay – SVU Mireille Enos –The Killing Julianna Marguiles – The Good Wife Kathy Bates – Harry’s Law
You Picked: Julianna Margulies
My Pick: Julianna Margulies
Why? Because Julianna is especially good when things are bad for her on The Good Wife. Also, maybe winning will make her more amenable to forgiving Kalinda.
