SNL had a strong season, and it had a lot to do with the hosts. I think Hanks is a shoo-in. Everyone loves him, and his crazy Pumpkins skit is still memorable. Also, loved his Black Jeopardy skit too. I’d bet on at least one other nomination for SNL. Veep is beloved, and probably both Laurie and MacNicol will get in. That leaves someone from Girls, or Daveed Diggs.

My Predictions: Hanks, Miranda, Laurie, MacNicol, Rhys

Guest Actress:
THE CONTENDERS:
Melissa McCarthy (SNL)
Kristin Wiig (SNL)
Carrie Fisher (Catastrophe)
Angela Bassett (Master Of None)
Christine Baranski (The Big Bang Theory)
Laurie Metcalf (The Big Bang Theory)
Jane Adams (Atlanta)
Patti LuPone (Crazy Ex Girlfriend)
Natalie Portman (Angie Tribeca)
Becky Ann Baker (Girls)

SHOULDA BEEN CONTENDERS:
Maya Rudolph (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt)
Wanda Sykes (Black-ish)
Rashida Jones (Black-isH)
Julianne Moore (Difficult People)
Tina Fey (Difficult People)

You can bet Carrie Fisher is a lock for a posthumous nomination. I’d also lay solid bets on both Baranski and Metcalf. I think that leaves room for one SNL girl. Let’s be honest, it’s McCarthy for her ongoing Sean Spicer impersonation. That means one more random from the list gets a nomination.

My Predictions: Fisher, Baranski, Metcalf, McCarthy, Bassett
