Emmy Nomination Preview 2013 - Outstanding Comedy Series
Can anything dethrone 'Modern Family'?
Nomination Status: Emmy voters are slowly catching on.
In Its Favor: Last year, Emmy voters nominated Louis C.K. for acting, writing and directing, which was a big improvement over the previous year, but they couldn't quite bring themselves to give him the Comedy Series nod that "Louie" clearly deserved. I'm going with the hunch that Louis C.K. still gets his various nominations and that "Louie" is able to add the key nomination.
Working Against It: Two years without Comedy Series nominations shows that "Louie" is, at best, an acquired taste for Emmy voters. That they're acquiring it is admirable, but if their affection plateaued last year, they might just feel comfortable honoring Louis C.K. for everything BUT the overall series.
