Nomination Status: How are you supposed to choose?

Bottom Line: Both Jermaine and Bret are up for Lead Actor, which is fair, since they share the show. But how are voters supposed to decide which one to support? The obvious answer: Don't Vote For Either of Them. Expect voters to collectively make the decision. Fortunately, though, Clement and McKenzie will probably get recognition else where. Did you realized they received three nominations last year, two for songs and one for writing? Expect more of the same this year. How about a nomination for "Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor"? Is that too much to ask?
