I’m happy for all the nominations, but I have to say I’m especially happy that Jenna was nominated. Pam had quite the journey in Season 3, evolving from the mousy receptionist to Fancy New Beesly without her best friend to support her for most of the season, and Jenna was pitch perfect playing this small town girl who still thinks leaving her hair down or wearing lipstick is a big deal. I don’t know if it will be enough for her to win, but I’m still thrilled she was recognized for her work this season.
The Primetime Emmy Awards are on Sunday, September 16th. Will The Office get an awesome Season 4 lead-in with back-to-back best comedy wins? We’ll see soon enough.
