Why He Will Be Nominated: Let us count the ways: 1) He's already been nominated twice. 2) He won the award in 2010. 3) Look up the definition of scene-stealer in the TV dictionary and chances are you'll find a picture of Stonestreet. The man doesn't even need words, he's that good.
Why He Won't: Stonestreet's biggest competition? His three costars Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ed O'Neill and Ty Burrell, who is definitely the favorite heading into this race.
