Donald Glover of 'Community'
Donald Glover, "Community"
Nomination Status: Dan Harmon might protest if suddenly a "Community" actor picked up a nomination for Season 4. Fortunately...
In His Favor: I just didn't have space for more than one "Community" actor getting their own slide, so the question was this: Did the body-switching episode "Basic Human Anatomy," did I think Donald Glover did a better job of playing Danny Pudi or vice versa? My answer? The former. Your results may vary. Both Pudy and Glover were very good in what was probably the season's best half-hour. Because of the way the episode arced with Troy's relationship with Britta, I give the advantage to Glover, even if Pudi played many of those emotional beats.
Working Against Him: "Community" isn't about to start getting Emmy nominations now. And maybe Dan Harmon didn't want to be publicly bad-mouthing Season 4 just as Emmy voters were getting their ballots. Not that that will make an iota of difference.
