Emmy season is upon us! For the next two weeks, voters will be checking off names and shows they think are worthy of getting a nomination come July 18. We at TVGuide.com have a few selections in mind ourselves. Next up: our dream ballot for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. Emmys: TVGuide.com's picks for supporting actress in a comedy series Will Arnett, Arrested DevelopmentLove or hate Season 4 of Arrested Development, we can all agree that Gob's first episode, "Colony Collapse," was sublime. That's partially because of the endless Ann gags, the epic Entourage spoof and that catchy "Getaway" tune, but mostly due to Arnett, who seamlessly fell right back into our favorite illusionist's delusional, self-centered, self-loathing headspace. Let's hope voters did not take any "Forget-Me-Nows." Tony Hale, VeepHale did not submit himself for Arrested Development, perhaps out of loyalty to Veep, which agreed to loan him out for AD (hence the sparseness of Buster in Season 4). But he is equally as Emmy-worthy as Gary, Selina's sycophantic personal aide/"bag man," whose absurd devotion to the VP is only rivaled by, well, Buster's to Lucille. Simon Helberg, The Big Bang Theory The actor, who won the Critics' Choice Award last week, has always slayed us as the formerly womanizing Howard in Big Bang's early days, but Howard's domestication and maturation in recent years has allowed Helberg to showcase his incredible versatility. Don't believe us? Just watch "The Closet Reconfiguration," in which Howard finds an unopened letter from his father who abandoned him, and Helberg's hysterical Nicolas Cage, et al. impressions (a Conan favorite) in "The Love Spell Potential." Add new fall shows to your Watchlist now! Taran Killam, Saturday Night LiveThis slot will likely go to Bill Hader (as it did last year), but it's high time Killam gets his day in the sun. Since joining SNL in 2010, he has become the sketch show's secret weapon between his stellar Brad Pitt impression and that ridiculous "The Legend of Mokiki and the Sloppy Swish" short. The old SNL guard is out the door, but with Killam, the show is in good, funny hands. Adam Pally, Happy EndingsBrash, slovenly, sarcastic and a master fore-kisser, Max has been a scene-stealer since Day 1 of the dearly departed sitcom, all thanks to Pally's scream of a performance. If nothing else, he at least deserves props for turning the stereotypical TV gay guy on its head. Damon Wayans Jr., Happy Endings It's impossible to overstate Wayans' loony ingenuity. His physical comedy prowess alone makes us double over with laughter, but it's his disarmingly quirky metrosexual Brad and his crazy/crazy-in-love chemistry with Eliza Coupe that are truly ah-mah-zing. Who doesn't want to be these two? Who do you hope is nominated?/>
