We might actually get a few new names here in this category. Definitely Aziz Ansari, whose Master Of None looks to put him as a lock. It’s one of the few times where a new nominee would be considered a lock, he has that much support. Tambor and Ansari lock in two of the spots. Then, you have to look at the wildcards, where it’s likely four of those guys will be nominated.
WILL BE NOMINATED: Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent), Aziz Ansari (Master Of None)
WILD CARDS: Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Will Forte (The Last Man On Earth), William H Macy (Shameless), Gael Garcia Bernal (Mozart In The Jungle), Don Cheadle (House Of Lies), Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Patrick Stewart (Blunt Talk)
DARK HORSES: Rob Lowe (The Grinder), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Fred Armisen (Portlandia), Zach Galafanakis (Baskets), Billy Eichner (Difficult People), Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show), Rob Delaney (Catastrophe)
SHOULDA BEEN A CONTENDER: Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine Nine), Randall Park (Fresh Off The Boat), Bruce Campbell (Ash Vs The Evil Dead), Fred Savage (The Grinder), Dwayne Johnson (Ballers)
If it were my votes, I’d definitely be nominating Ansari, Tambor, Forte, Lowe, Samberg, and Savage. Those would be my top six. I’m betting that the Emmy voters will go with Tambor, Ansari, Bernal, Stewart, Parsons, and Macy. I think those are the six. It’d be nice to see Lowe’s name announced, since his show got cancelled. It’s be a sweet middle finger to FOX for not sticking with the show.
