Chris Colfer "Glee" regains his Best Comedy Actor title that he relinquished last year to this years runner up & 2X winner (2012, 2014) Jim Parsons "The Big Bang Theory". Since the unexpected death of the shows lead male, Cory Monteith, a couple years ago, Colfer has stepped up into the lead role and grown his fan base substantially portraying the fashionable Kurt Hummel on the show. This years 1-2 finish of Colfer and Parsons ends a 3 year run of the pair finishing 1-2 in this category as Glee will not be eligible for next years awards.
Darren Criss "Glee" finished 3rd in this final year of eligibility on the show. Timothy Omundson "Galavant" was 4th and Chris Pratt "Parks And Recreation" was 5th.
Andy Samberg "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" was 6th. William H Macy "Shameless" was 7th by 1 vote over Tituss Burgess "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" in 8th. Simon Helberg "The Big Bang Theory" was 9th narrowly edging out Terry Crews "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" in 10th.
Ed O'Neill "Modern Family" 11th, Ty Burrell "Modern Family" 12th, Don Cheadle "House Of Lies" 13th, Charlie Day "Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia" 14th. Kevin Sussmann "The Big Bang Theory" 15th, were all newcomer to the finals.
