'Parks and Recreation'
"Parks and Recreation," NBC
Nomination Status: The best comedy on TV *should* be among the alleged Outstanding Comedy Series.
In Its Favor: It's a common sense approach: "Parks and Recreation" is fantastic. Everyone I know who actually watches "Parks and Recreation" thinks it's fantastic. Therefore, why wouldn't Emmy voters think "Parks & Recreation" is fantastic? I let that logic steer me to predicting nominations for Nick Offerman, Amy Poehler and Rob Lowe.
Working Against It: If you're predicting a nomination for "Parks and Recreation" in this category, you're basing it on two things: Quality and wishful thinking. There's no way to reference precedent or Emmy voting logic, unfortunately. Emmy, Globes and SAG voters have all had multiple opportunities to nominate "Parks and Recreation" for multiple awards and have failed to do so thus far. But maybe this year will be different?
