Were your faves snubbed at the Emmys? Vote to make them EWwy winners!
It’s time for EW.com’s 7th annual reader-voted EWwy Awards, which honor those shows and actors you wish got nominated for an Emmy but didn’t.
Best Actor in a Comedy Series
Jonathan Groff, Looking
Besides its sitcom-length running time and a few good one-liners about OkCupid, there’s no reason why Looking should have submitted in the comedy category. The show’s a tragicomedy (at best) about Patrick (Groff), who manages to make all the wrong choices—from talking about circumcision mid-hookup to giving in to his creepy boss’s advances. The twentysomething game designer might be easy to hate (and he’s still hard to love), but Groff brings enough earnest definition to the role that it’s impossible not to sympathize. This performance holds together, even as Patrick falls apart.
Click here to vote for Jonathan. Polls will remain open through noon ET, Aug. 15. Winners will be announced live on EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) on Aug. 18. And yes, there are trophies involved.
