As we count down to the 2014 Emmy Awards, Zap2it is taking a closer look at each of the lead acting nominees for comedy and drama -- and judging them not by their best work, but by some of the more dubious credits on their IMDB pages. So we ask you: Based on what you're about to see, would you give this person an Emmy?
Melissa McCarthy is one of the funniest and hardest working comedians around right now, and it's impossible to deny that her third Emmy nomination for
"Mike & Molly" is well deserved. But with an actress who is so committed to being funny, she sometimes dives a bit too deep into character for comfort (heck, she was nominated for an Oscar for having explosive diarrhea in "Bridesmaids").
With the 66th annual Emmy Awards right around the corner,
Zap2it figured it would be fun to look back at some of its Best Actor and Actress nominees in their less-loved roles and see if they'd still be as deserving of acting recognition. In McCarthy's case, that means we're checking out 2013's "Identity Thief," which was one of her
worst reviewed movies ever.
Despite its hackneyed premise and mediocre writing, McCarthy still sort of nails it as titular identity thief Diana. Do you see Emmy-worthy potential in even the worst of McCarthy's roles? Vote below:
