You people all suck!! Emily all the way!!! BB Forever!!!


See, while I love Glee, Emily Deschanel's depiction of Temperance Brennan in Bones is beyond unrecognized. She is one of the best actresses. The way she portrays that character is gold and deserves to be rewarded. Need proof? Watch episodes like The Doctor In The Photo or The Boy With The Answer. Emily Deschanel is unmatched before Chris Colfer


Emily! Chris Colfer isn't that good...


Please vote for EMILY, she is the best...


Chris Colfer. He's just an amazing actor. His work on 8 was astounding.


Emily is Amazing!!!!!


Emily is the best!!!!!!!!!


my vote goes for Chris he is my favorite on glee GO CHRIS!!!!


Chris Colfer. Starring as Kurt Hummel in Glee, yes, but that isn't the only thing he's done! Not by a long shot. He has been acting since he was in school. Has now written a children's novel (which I am thoroughly enjoying right now btw!) and is writing the sequel. The Land Of Stories made him a New York Times #1 bestselling author. Has written, directed and starred in the movie Struck By Lighting. Aired at the Tribecca film-festival and will hopefully be in the theaters soon. Has written another movie and starred in a simple role. Has won a Golden Globe, is one of Time's 100 most influential people, has been nominated for Emmy's. He is 22 years old and was 19 when his journey started.
Now don't get me wrong! I love Bones and I love Emily. I just really think that Chris deserves this.


RFEW: Like I said, Chris is the best actor in Glee so of course that means he outshined everyone in there. I am just saying Emily has a stronger presence and that a large number of people watch Glee ( for the singing mainly) so people who vote here today knows of Chris more than Emily just because of targeted audiences. I mean, many people did not even know who Chris Colfer was until Glee (note that I am not saying everyone, I am saying man people)

Bones Quotes

Sometimes the best things in life happen against the odds.


Booth: I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here, look, um, hey. Do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around in this spot? It was right in the beginning before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you because you were irritating me and, uh, you chased me down, and you caught up to me and I said to you 'listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row' and you said to me--
Brennan: I can be a duck.
Booth: Yeah. You know we had been chasing each other for a long time. Chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes. And now chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy. But now, we, uh, we don't have to chase each other anymore because we caught each other.
