Thanks to last night’s Emmy Awards, there’s a lot of happy actresses and actors with some flashy new hardware to show off today. For you LSAT test-takers, however, there’s still a couple weeks before you can flaunt your accomplishments to Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, and E! News…or at least to your parents. Let’s take a second to see if our smug socialite counterparts over in Hollywood would still be so self-assured after a run-in with the LSAT.
Julianne Moore: Won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress on a Miniseries or Movie for HBO’s Game Change. This accomplished actress may actually be able to muster up a respectable LSAT score, but her character, Sarah Palin, wouldn’t be so fortunate. The North Idaho College grad would likely have some trouble with portions of the test relating to logic, bumping her score down to a 148.
Tom Hanks: Brought home some hardware for Outstanding Miniseries or Movie thanks to HBO’s Game Change, for which he is an executive producer. Though there’s nothing in his educational and/or medical background to indicate this, Tom Hanks is most likely a savant. As a result, you’ve got to imagine anything less than a 177 would be insulting to him.
Eric Stonestreet: This winner of the Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series award for his work on ABC’s Modern Family would likely struggle a bit on the LSAT considering that his lifelong aspiration was to become a professional clown. His character, Cameron Tucker, however, went the route of stay at home dad which would at least provide him with some quality study time. Cameron also proves to be quite witty and clever, but the antics he consistently finds himself in are concerning. In the end, Cameron is going to come home to Mitchell and Lily with a solid 160.
John Cryer: Won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series as Alan Harper in Two and a Half Men. You’ve got to believe that anybody who puts up with Charlie Sheen for multiple years must have tremendous willpower. John Cryer and his character, Alan, have done this, so there is no telling what Cryer is capable of. If he can harness this resolution throughout his LSAT prep, I can see Cryer coming in at an impressive 170.
