Yahoo TV Extra Emmys: Best Bromance
The Emmys do their best at honoring the best in television, but a few things fall through the cracks. Here is your chance to vote on the Best Bromance from the 2012-2013 television season.
Sheldon and Leonard ("The Big Bang Theory") — Leonard (Johnny Galecki) is the yin to Sheldon's (Jim Parsons) yang, and although the two share an apartment by a lengthy contractual agreement, their friendship remains intact after all these years of sarcasm and science puns.
Troy and Abed ("Community") — The friendship between roommates, duet partners, and imaginary morning show hosts Donald Glover and Danny Pudi provides the heart of the show's eccentric ensemble.
Harvey and Mike ("Suits") — The relationship between the two high-powered New York City lawyers (OK, one real lawyer and one fake lawyer) played by Gabriel Mact and Patrick J. Adams has had its rough patches, but in the end, they protect the other's well-clothed back.
Tom and Jean-Ralphio ("Parks and Recreation") — Did their first joint business venture, Entertainment 720, fail? Yes. Did Tom (Aziz Ansari) fall into an unhealthy relationship with Jean-Ralphio's (Ben Schwartz) sister? Also yes. But when you are two enthusiastic idea men with swag to spare, you've got to stick together.
Kenny and Stevie ("Eastbound & Down") — The least healthy relationship in this contest, Stevie (Steve Little) worships Kenny (Danny McBride), and Kenny abuses Stevie, but their devotion to one another is admirable in a really weird way.
Adam Levine and Blake Shelton ("The Voice") — Sure, these two superstars battle each other for prime talent on NBC's hit singing competition. But underneath the constant barbs, you know Levine and Shelton are best bros. The guys shared a People magazine cover, for Pete's sake!
McGarrett and Danny ("Hawaii Five-0") — Partners on the Five-0 task force, these two (Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan) have vastly different approaches to catching bad guys, but together they get the job done … and still find time to hit the beach. They also bicker so much while driving on duty that they've inspired the term "carguments." But no marriage is perfect.
Nev Schulman and Max Joseph ("Catfish") — You have to have a pretty strong relationship to survive a life of traveling the country talking to social media conmen (and women) , and these two have certainly survived a lot of — shall we say interesting? — situations together.
Jared Franklin and Peter Bash ("Franklin and Bash") — If we're judging this category solely on the level of bro involved, there's no question that Breckin Meyer and Mark-Paul Gosselaar's frat-boy lawyers would easily take the prize.
Tyrion and Bronn ("Game of Thrones") – The little lord and the sellsword (Peter Dinklage and Jerome Flynn) have made quite a team, helping to lead a successful defense of King's Landing, teaching their squire Podrick about the ways of women, and guarding the other's back in a city where trust is the most valuable commodity.
