Louis C.K. of 'Louie'
Louis C.K., "Louie"
Nomination Status: Wanna earn my respect, Emmy voters? Nominate Louis C.K. What? You don't care about my respect? Fair nuf.
In His Favor: "Louie" isn't quite a one-man show, but with Louis C.K. writing, directing, producing, starring and probably doing the catering, it's pretty darned close. Want a way to reward the veteran standup favorite for masterminding one of the most daring TV comedies in years? This is probably a safe place to honor Louis C.K. for being TV's ultimate hard-luck everyman.
Working Against Him: "Louie" is an edgy, alienating show and it aired its first season in a late night slot on a network Emmy voters have never respected for comedy.
