Yep, Emmy voters are still suckers for split personalities

September 20, 2009 |  6:27 pm

Just as we warned you might happen, Emmy voters are absurdly picking actors who portray split personalities: Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock") and Toni Collette ("United States of Tara"). In his sample episode submitted to Emmy judges ("Generalissimo"), Baldwin portrayed his usual character (ruthless corporate suit) plus a look-alike (star of Hispanic TV soap opera). In "Tara," Collette portrays four personalities, including a redneck man. Read more about the peculiar fondness that Hollywood awards have for such roles here.
