Steve Carell Snubbed for 'Office' Emmy

Steve CarellWhile there's no doubt Jim Parsons does incredible work as Sheldon on 'The Big Bang Theory,' one of the biggest bummers of Sunday's Emmy Awards telecast was the inimitable Steve Carell losing out on his final chance to win an Emmy for his six-year stint as Michael Scott on 'The Office.'

Though the show's writing has been uneven in recent seasons, there's no doubt Carell's performance -- especially in the episode 'Garage Sale,' where Scott proposed to longtime girlfriend Holly Flax -- was statuette-worthy.

Carell has been nominated for acting Emmys and Golden Globes for all six years he's played Michael Scott, but the only win he took for the character was in 2006, when he nabbed the Globe. The actor left 'The Office' this year, so it was his last chance to snag some Emmy love.

Parsons won his second Emmy for 'The Big Bang Theory' Sunday night; it was his third nomination.

Tell us: Are you bummed about Carell's snub? Or do you think Parsons deserved it more?

Community and Parks and Recreation were the real victims. The Office has been terrible since Season 4. It shouldn't have even been nominated this year.

I AM TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED THAT STEVE CARELL DID NOT WIN. IN MY OPINION, HE RANKS RIGHT ALONGSIDE JACK BENNY, JACKIE GLESON, BOB HOPE IN COMEDIC TALENT. NOT ONLY CAN HE MAKE US LAUGH WITH JUST A LOOK...HE DOESN'T EVEN NEED SCRIPTS AND CAN AD LIB HIS WAY INTO OUR HEARTS. HE IS TRULY BRILLIANT ...NOT ONLY IN "THE OFFICE" BUT IN EVERY MOVIE HE HAS EVER MADE. HE IS UNIQUE...ONE OF A KIND. HIS TALENT RANKS SO FAR ABOVE THOSE WHO HAVE WON OVER HIM EACH YEAR IT ONLY LEADS ONE TO BELIEVE THAT THE VOTING STAFF MUST HAVE SOMETHING LIKE A PERSONAL VENDETTA AGAINST HIM. MAYBE BECAUSE HIS COMEDY STYLE IS CLEAN AND WHOLESOME AS WELL AS REALLY REALLY FUNNY AND THEY SEEM TO PREFER STARS WHO APPEAL TO THE LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR OF THE VIEWING PUBLIC. STEVE CARELL WILL BE AROUND LONG AFTER THE OTHERS HAVE DISAPPEARED INTO THE ".....WHAT WAS HIS NAME?" LIST.

The Office is an irritating bore; amusement for people who think they have a sense of humor. Steve Carell talks as though what he's saying is funny, but it never is.

Whatever happened to "Harry's Law"? The best new program last year. We looked foreward to it every week. We're sure tired ot these reality shows including the "Kards.". Who cares what they do? dmh, Ohio

By all means, Steve Carell SHOULD HAVE WON AN EMMY!!! I, and I'm sure this opinion is shared by the majority
of fans who have been delighted and intrigued by his outstanding, unique portrayal as "The Office" Manager. I SO
miss him!! That (a favorite) series) is SO not the same without him!. LOVE YOU, Steve Carell!

I didn't find the office 2 be a bad show although I never watched it
religiously.

I like all the characters in the show; I found it entertaining and somehow
all the acting of the characters was a little 'different' - not bad at all.
Good luck to Steve Correll - what will he be doing now.

Wowwwww! I thought my husband was the only one who hated The Office! I personally love the show, as well as the character Michael Scott...Steve Carell played the part of a jack-ass so well that we forgot he was only acting! I look foward to the new boss in the office...although he'll always be Alan Shore to me!
