Rob Lowe - "Parks and Recreation" FYC Clip : Yes, my quest continues for the best sitcom on television to get the recognition it deserves. Two weeks back I pushed for voters to put Nick Offerman on their ballots, but there's no one I'd rather see get an Emmy nomination -- and no one less likely to receive one -- than Rob Lowe. While he stands a good shot at a nod for his role in "Killing Kennedy," the deck is stacked against him for "Parks." First, he's on the ballot for leading man, not supporting, which he clearly is to anyone familiar with the program. His case won't be helped by his departure midway through the season, cutting his screen time down even further. This is all the more reason, though, to champion the man who brought the most enthusiasm, heart, and humor to network TV this year, and many years prior. He's the best comedic actor of the year, and I will literally cry when the Academy rejects talent in favor of ratings for one more year.
