Turn Emmy snubs upside down by voting for the EWwy Awards!

September 3rd, 2009 by Michael Slezak Sr. Writer, EW.com

Today, EW.com’s Michael Slezak writes about Entertainment Weekly’s EWwy Awards. Check out some of the comedy contenders on Hulu’s EWwys page, then vote for your favorites at EW.com.

And the Emmy nominees are … Tony Shalhoub for Monk. Charlie Sheen for Two and a Half Men. Entourage. And pretty much all the usual suspects that you expect to hear from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences year after year after frustrating year.

No disrespect to Mr. Shalhoub, Mr. Sheen or HBO’s guys-in-Hollywood dramedy, but where’s the Emmy love for fresh, underrated series like Chuck, Psych, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Better Off Ted? Given the standard operating cluelessness of Emmy, Entertainment Weekly created the EWwy Awards, a yearly opportunity for our readers to nominate and vote for their favorite programs and performers snubbed by Emmy.

From now until Sept. 6, you can view all 30 nominees in five EWwy comedy divisions, then vote for your favorites, at EW.com/ewwys; and if you need a refresher on why our nominees are so awesome, you can check out clips of selected nominees at Hulu’s EWwys hub. (The drama categories kick off Sept. 7.) Hey, even if you don’t really need a refresher course to help you decide between Ugly Betty‘s Michael Urie and How I Met Your Mother‘s Jason Segel (two of the six guys up for an EWwy for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy), it’s always a hoot to relive some of their funniest moments instead of, oh, finishing that pile of work on your desk, right?
