Well, in an impossible to predict frontrunner status, some combination of the Modern Family team will inevitably get nominations. Ty Burrell, Ed O’Neill, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Eric Stonestreet. They should get 2-3 nominations out of that group.
Another frontrunner is Tony Hale for Veep. Definitely getting nominated. Beyond Hale, it gets a little murkier. Andre Braugher should be considered a contender for Brooklyn Nine Nine, and Adam Driver could end up with a nomination for Girls.
As longshots, Chris Colfer had a strong episode of Glee where he suffered a beating, and Kevin Dunn could be Veep’s 2nd nomination in the category. Or they could go with Reid Scott from Veep. Neil Patrick Harris is a possibility for the final season of How I Met Your Mother.
Critics choice nominees Albert Tsai for Trophy Wife, Keith David for Enlisted, and Christopher Evan Welch for Silicon Valley, are all longshots. As are the underappreciated supporting casts of Parks and Recreation and Community.
I would bet on three Modern Family nominees, Hale, Braugher, and either Driver or Harris.
Personally, I’d vote for Burrell, O’Neill, Danny Pudi for Community, Jim Rash for Community, Chris Pratt for Parks and Recreation, and Adam Pally for The Mindy Project.
