Welcome back to CliqueClack Goes to the Emmys, a column where I, Julia, go through who and what I want to be nominated and win at this year’s Emmys, and pretend that it has any effect on the actual (inevitably disappointing) nominations. This week we’re conquering the Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Emmy. And the nominees are:
Ty Burrell, Modern Family
Max Greenfield, New Girl
Tony Hale, Veep
Danny Pudi, Community
Damon Wayans Jr., Happy Endings
You’ll note that the forever-ignored Nick Offerman isn’t here for his role on Parks and Recreation, and there’s a good reason for that: he’s Lead Actor material. I mean, if Rob Lowe counts as a “lead” actor, doesn’t Offerman? I’d go into more detail on this logic, but that would spoil my Lead Actor column that’s coming up in a few weeks, so you’re just going to have to trust that I’ve thought this one out. But yes, on to the actual nominees!
