"Parenthood" - FYC Clip : I'll head to the San Francisco Bay and the Braverman family who carry enough awards prestige between them to establish their own ceremony. Peter Krause was on "Six Feet Under" (9 Emmy wins); Lauren Graham from "Gilmore Girls" (1 Emmy win); Craig T. Nelson from "Coach" (2 wins); and the rest of the prestigious cast form a group of actors with a wealth of awards experience. Yet all Jason Katims' family drama has earned from Emmy is a Guest Actor nod for Jason Ritter, which frankly is the least deserving actor to appear on the show. The whole cast should be annual contenders, and the show as a whole is an impressive example of how to best wrangle a large ensemble to full effect. Each character is given his or her own time to shine without losing dramatic emphasis, a practice perfected by Katims on his previous show, "Friday Night Lights." Here's hoping the Academy finally recognizes it for fulfilling the potential of its respected cast.
