The Office, Steve Carell

NBC/Justin Lubin

This one's so easy it's almost funny. Okay, it's really funny, as E! Online's TV Diva, Kristin Veitch, continues her picks and predicts the Emmy winners, this time for Outstanding Comedy Series:

The Incumbent:  The Office

The Contenders

  • 30 Rock
  • Entourage
  • The Office
  • Two and a Half Men
  • Ugly Betty

What Should Win:  The Office

What Will Win:  The Office

To paraphrase a popular religious creed, "There is no comedy but The Office, and Steve Carell is the messenger of The Office." (Blasphemy is hilarious, no? No?) Despite breakout seasons for 30 Rock and Ugly Betty, the enduring popularity of Two and a Half Men and the glamour of Entourage, The Office still stands head and shoulders above every other "laffer" on television. It is simply a perfect storm of popularity and critical acclaim, and it should blow away the competition.
