Our Emmy polls series continues. This week you can vote on the nominees for best supporting actor and actress in a comedy categories, where the choices are limited if you’re not a fan of “Modern Family.”
We’ve given you chapter and verse already about how every one of the adult actors on the hit ABC show have gotten nominations this year. Which means that, on the male side of the ledger, four of the six slots are taken by “Family” stars. Eric Stonestreet won it last year, but the award could go to any of his three co-stars, Ty Burrell, Ed O’Neill and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. But not so fast: Chris Colfer had some meaty bullying-related storylines on “Glee” this year and did win a Golden Globe. Jon Cryer has won in this category before, and there may be sympathy for him given the hell Charlie Sheen put Cryer and his “Two and a Half Men” co-stars through this past season.
On the women’s side, only two of the six nominees — Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara — are from “Modern Family.” Betty White of “Hot In Cleveland” will be tough to beat, and not just because she’s the sentimental favorite; her career resurgence is as much about her continuing to do a fantastic job as it is about nostalgia. We can’t forget about defending champ and Emmy host Jane Lynch, either; the “Glee” episode she submitted, “Funeral,” could take her back to the top. Kristen Wiig of “Saturday Night Live” and Jane Krakowski of “30 Rock” are longshots, but may surprise if the other four women split the vote.
Who do you think will bring home the Emmy? Vote in the poll below. The 63rd annual Primetime Emmys, hosted by Jane Lynch, air live at 8 p.m. ET Sept. 18 on FOX.
