Jeff Perry of 'Scandal'
Jeff Perry, "Scandal"
Nomination Status: Another worthy option for that First "Scandal" Recognition prize I mentioned earlier.
In His Favor: Nobody, and I'm including star Kerry Washington, gets more milage out of "Scandal" creator Shonda Rhimes' brand of hyper-verbose prose than Jeff Perry, who turns every one of his character's monologues into Shakespeare-on-Ritalin and crafting a character who, even after two seasons, I still can't pigeon-hole as "good" or "bad." No, Cyrus is just "difficult" and nowhere is that more true than in Perry's scenes shared with Dan Bucatinsky, who have made a relationship that would be really sweet and wholesome, if both parties weren't engaged in emotional and political warfare against each other at all times.
Working Against Him: Kerry Washington will get first dibs on "Scandal" Emmy recognition. Although he probably shouldn't, I think Tony Goldwyn is probably the next most-likely. And then Guillermo Diaz. But after that? Jeff Perry is totally next in line. Unless Josh Malina is.
