Jack McBrayer of '30 Rock'
Jack McBrayer, "30 Rock"
Nomination Status: Plausible nominee
Bottom Line: A year ago, Kenneth the Page was all the rage (hey, that rhymes) and McBrayer seemed like a good bet for a sleeper nominee, even making the Top 10. After a season that gave McBrayer too few opportunities to give Kenneth new shadings, a nomination makes less sense. That's why it seems like the perfect time for slow-on-the-uptake Emmy voters to catch on. And it isn't like McBrayer didn't still have some tremendously funny moments, like his blind date with the blind hottie? Funny stuff.
