Television’s finest will battle it out for trophies at Monday night’s Emmy awards, but a few have already earned special honors of their own.
Forget Best Actor in a Drama Series – the real prize in the Twitterverse is Most-Followed Nominee. And although he faced some stiff competition from his fellow comedians, Jimmy Fallon (@JimmyFallon) takes the top spot with a hefty 14 million followers.
The moral of the story? It’s good to be a male comic on social media – but we’ll see if those Twitter followers help sway the Emmy voters on Monday night.
