Matt LeBlanc of 'Episodes'
Matt LeBlanc, "Episodes"
Nomination Status: After a year away, LeBlanc should return to the field.
In His Favor: Emmy voters really like Matt LeBlanc, giving him three nominations for "Friends" and a nomination in 2011 for his performance as a better endowed version of himself. There was nothing in the second season of "Episodes" that would seem to be standing in the way of another LeBlanc nomination as he continued to simultaneously inflate his image while poking fun at himself on a show that plays right into the wheelhouse of award voters.
Working Against Him: Having gotten that first nomination for "Episodes," I don't see much standing in the way of a second, unless Emmy voters finally realized that as Hollywood satires go, "Episodes" is painfully flacid.
