I have absolutely hated the Emmy nominee list the past couple years. It seems as though they just watch the same shows, and nominate the same people over and over. It takes a lot to break through into a category, and I’m giving up on the Emmy voters shocking me with nominations.
WILL BE NOMINATED: Allison Janney (Mom), Anna Chlumsky (Veep), Kate McKinnon (SNL), Judith Light (Transparent)
WILD CARDS: Jane Krakowski (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Gaby Hoffman (Transparent)
DARK HORSES: Niecy Nash (Getting On), Bernadette Peters (Mozart In The Jungle), Sofia Vergara (Modern Family)
SHOULDA BEEN A CONTENDER: Loretta DeVine (The Carmichael Show), Mary Steenburgen (The Last Man On Earth), Niecy Nash (Scream Queens), Lea Michele (Scream Queens), Carol Kane (The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt)
It’s hard to say who is leading to win this year, though my odds are almost always on Janney. If I was voting, I would give it to Nash for Scream Queens. I don’t think another actress made me laugh as hard as she did on Scream Queens. She’s far and away the MVP of that show, and did some truly hilarious work. Denise Hemphill is life.
