Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series
Louis C.K. plays a guy who's pretty sad on Louie. At times he's apathetic about his kids, frequently inappropriate, and he'd like to get laid, but mostly he really just wants to be comfortable. Louis C.K.'s talent as creator, writer, producer, and star elevates what could be a completely unsympathetic character to a guy who everyone relates to, whether or not they want to admit it. Behind the camera or in front of it (but mostly in front of it), Louis C.K. deserves to be holding a trophy this year.
