Who Deserves an Emmy Nomination?
“Louie” (Comedy Series)
Yes, star Louis C.K. did get a Best Actor nod last year, but even he would admit he’s no great thespian. (See the great Season 1 episode, “Heckler/Cop Movie” with Matthew Broderick, for proof of that.) His FX show, however, deserves every accolade coming its way. It’s a raw, caustic slice of life that breaks every sitcom rule in the book, daring to go long stretches – even entire episodes -- without telling a “joke.” Classify it however you want; “Louie” is compelling, revealing television… and, oh yeah, funny as hell, too.
