Emmy Nominees: Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 2/6, picking just Michael J. Fox and Jimmy Fallon

Potentially this year’s biggest surprise (almost) is the snub of Matthew Bomer, who was terrific in his guest stint on “Glee,” a show that went from a Best Comedy Series nomination and a whole lot more to a guest actress nod and two other technical mentions. It would have been nice to see Paul Rudd for “Parks and Recreation” too, but he’s only recognized as part of the two episodes nominated for writing in which he plays a major part. Rather than honor new blood, voters chose to recognize two previously-nominated “30 Rock” guest stars, Will Arnett and Jon Hamm, who weren’t in all that much this year but were pretty funny. Greg Kinnear (Modern Family) got in for his unspectacular guest spot, and he joins Bobby Cannavale (Nurse Jackie), who won this award for “Will and Grace” back in 2005, Michael J. Fox (Curb Your Enthusiasm), and Jimmy Fallon (Saturday Night Live).

Who should win? I haven’t seen enough of these, but Fox!
Who will win? Fox
