HIHW Awards: More On The TV

On the heels of yesterday's Coach Taylor nominees, here are a couple more TV Person categories for you:

The Sydney Bristow Trophy for Favourite TV Person (Non-Sports)
Vanessa Lengies as Sugar Motta, Glee: Everything about her is hilarious: The awful clothes. The narcissism. The fact that she's the only character on Glee who isn't even slightly capable of singing.
Casey Wilson as Penny, Happy Endings: Name me another character who sang at a boat show this season. You can't. Casey Wilson would have had a great career on SNL, but she's doing even better on her own.
Nick Offerman as Ron Swanson, Parks and Recreation: If you watch the show, I don't think you need me to explain this to you.
Megan Mullally, lots of shows: She has appeared on no less than four comedies that I watched this season, and at least two others that I don't. She may have been funniest on Up All Night, as the evil, conniving, Southern-accented rival of Maya Rudolph's character.

Zachary Levi as Chuck, Chuck: He spent five seasons with this character, and it shows. By the time the series ended, there was so much more to the awkward nerd we met in the pilot. The Chuck finale was satisfying, and yet I'd love to see just one more episode. Plus, like a lot of nerd-friendly actors, Levi loves fans and is still great to them.
Insert your favourite New Girl castmember here: All three of the guys are hilarious. But there would be no show without Jess. But then there are all the guys' love interests, and all of Jess' love interests... Who to choose?
Lena Dunham, Girls: Haters be damned. Lena Dunham will probably wake up to a few Emmy nominations in a couple of weeks. Girls is both hilarious and heartbreaking, true-to-life and surreal all at once.

The Studio 8H Trophy For Next Big SNL Star
Bobby Moynihan: I've had my eye on him since his very first show. He's weird and quirky, has great timing, and can play big or small. If Stefon weren't such a gut-busting powerhouse, Drunk Uncle would definitely be everyone's favourite Weekend Update correspondent.
Jay Pharoah: Losing Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg means that SNL will have a whole lot of airtime to fill up. It's time to give Pharoah his due. The impersonations. The faces. The fearlessness. I, for one, can't wait.
Nasim Pedrad: She could be here based on her Kim Kardashian impersonation alone, but she's got so much more than that to her. I'm still waiting for her to build a cast of characters, but what I like about her is that she could probably make anyone laugh. Drop her in any SNL cast, any time, and she's probably work.
Abby Elliott: She was born to be on SNL, and not just because her dad used to be on the show.
Taran Killam: He's already replaced Jason Sudeikis as America's Boyfriend. Not just because Sudeikis seems like he's afraid of commitment and kind of a creep, but because Killam is the perfect storm of hilarious and completely lovable. Need I remind you of the "Call Your Girlfriend" video? I would have probably asked him to marry me already if he wasn't fully committed to How I Met Your Mother's Cobie Smulders.

As usual, write-in votes, reasons, and hate are welcome in the comments section.
