Winner: Jason Ritter
Congratulations to Jason Ritter. Not only did the second-generation star become the first evidence that Emmy voters were aware of "Parenthood," but he followed in the footsteps of his late father John, who earned six Emmy nods and a win in 1984. It's a nice story and a well-deserved piece of recognition.
