I am happy for the 5 nominations, they all deserve it. I was glad that Johnny was nominated, but I honestly hope Jim will win (although, people are speculating that Steve Carell will win as it was his last season at "The Office"). They are both very hard working and talented actors, but Jim has something more. I suppose some people are born lucky :)
