Matthew Perry of 'Mr. Sunshine'
Matthew Perry of "Mr. Sunshine"
Nomination Status: Mr. Sunshine? Yay. Matthew Perry's shot at a nomination? Nay.
In His Favor: Perry has had a fair measure of Emmy success, with four nominations. With "Mr. Sunshine," he produced and co-created the show, displaying the sort of versatility Emmy voters would have loved if "Mr. Sunshine" had been a success.
Working Against Him: "Mr. Sunshine" was not a success and Perry at times seemed unclear of how to work within the single-camera comedy framework. If any former "Friends" star is getting nominated in this category, it'll be LeBlanc.
