Eye on Emmy: Adam Scott Breaks Down the Art of Parks and Rec Romance, Ben’s Geek Affinity
YES YES YES YES! I would be SOOO happy to see Parks nominated in a new category, especially for acting. This is one of the most consistently funny shows on TV, and it doesn’t often receive the credit it’s due.

From saying “I do” to taking on Washington D.C. to adoring Game of Thrones above (almost) all else, Parks and Recreation‘s Ben Wyatt did it all in Season 5. And it was his portrayer Adam Scott who brought to life each of those moments with an impressive seamlessness.
Since joining the acclaimed NBC comedy at the end of its second season, the actor — whose lengthy list of previous credits includes TV’s Party Down and Tell Me You Love Me, as well as big-screen offerings Step Brothers and Piranha — has stood out among one of television’s most talented ensembles (which includes Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, to name a few). And yet still his endearingly nerdy, heartwarmingly romantic alter ego has gone unnoticed by Emmy voters. Will this be the year his award-worthy performance garners some long-overdue recognition?
