2014 Grammy Nominee: Veep - HBO
Tony Hale has had a good year, with the return of the cult phenomenon "Arrested Development," and now earning his first ever Emmy nomination for his role on HBO's "Veep." His nomination could be attributed to the entire supporting cast of the show developing as an ensemble. In the series, Hale crafts this role of a personal aide with severe attachment issues (this time to the "Veep" herself, Julia Louis-Dreyfus) with much the same hilarity that embodied his "Arrested" role. If the world wasn't ready for the kind of comedy Hale brings the first time "Arrested Development” was canceled, it certainly is now. And it's a big reason why he's got a good shot to take home this year’s Emmy for Supporting Actor in a Comedy.
