The TV Czar's Emmy Ballot: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series - Page 2
Adam Driver- Most of the characters in this category are established commodities, Driver came out of nowhere on Girls to make a huge splash. His portrayal of the phenomenally weird, but ultimately good-hearted, Adam was really well done. Dunham’s writing of the character was fabulous, but you have to have someone to execute the gameplan. Driver took an already impressive show and made much better than it probably should have been.
Chris Pratt- Here’s yet another supporting character on Parks and Recreation that deserves some Emmy consideration. His brand of foolishness is always upbeat, but never falls short of being hilarious. His most famous moment of the season was probably his work in acting out major movies for campaign donors of Leslie’s. However, his manic style produced several other works of comedy art. They are just far too numerous to list.
Ed O’Neil- Many other people were probably worthy of this final spot, but I think that O’Neil deserves it for being the mature center of an increasingly juvenile show. He’s usually good for a couple of one-liners an episode, but it’s often his more serious work that grabs my attention. He may never win this award, but he deserves a top six recognition.
