Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
Adam Driver, Girls
Max Greenfield, New Girl
Bill Hader, Saturday Night Live
Jack McBrayer, 30 Rock
It’s hard to continue the same schtick for six years straight, but colleagues Jane Krakowski and Jack McBrayer have continued to do so…AND make their characters undoubtedly hilarious. Like Busy Phillips, there isn’t a line that McBrayer cannot deliver in his own tone and style. In a few words: there’s no one else who could play Kenneth. He makes us laugh when he’s onscreen. Plus he’s immortal! Give it to Kenneth!
Damon Wayans, Jr., Happy Endings
Another actor on the list who just has a natural comedic timing and ability. Damon Wayans, Jr.’s talents are obviously a sign that he’s from the Wayans family… but he may even surpass them in talents. There’s only one way to put it: Wayans is hilarious.
Nick Offerman, Parks and Recreation
He’s Ron Effin Swanson. And Offerman plays that so well, sometimes it’s hard to believe that it’s just a character. And even though Offerman offers (ha!) us laughs in spades, he also plays Ron’s heartwarming scenes beautifully — and his out of character ones even more so!
