Emmy Awards 2011 Preview – Best Comedy Series
With three nominated shows, NBC leads the pack for this category. Our money's on ABC, though, for a repeat from last year's winner 'Modern Family,' but NBC's critical darling 'Parks and Recreation' could pull an upset. Here are all the nominees:
This three-time Best Comedy Series winner ('Modern Family' ended its streak last year) focused on Jack Donaghy’s entrance into the world of fatherhood and Liz Lemon’s continued relationship with pilot Carol (Matt Damon). And everyone struggled with the NBC/Kabletown merger.
In its fourth season, this show received its first Best Comedy Series nomination. 'Theory' was all about romance this season, with Leonard falling for Raj’s sister Priya, Sheldon finding a girlfriend and Howard and Bernadette continuing their relationship.
Critical reception was more positive than ever for the third season of this mockumentary-style sitcom, which follows the lives of parks department workers in Pawnee, Indiana. In season three, Leslie started dating coworker Ben, which violated workplace policy and put her dream of running for political office at risk.
