Emmy Predictions: Comedy Actor/Actress

Actor:
THE CONTENDERS:
Donald Glover (Atlanta)
Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent)
Anthony Anderson (Black-ish)
Aziz Ansari (Master Of None)
William H Macy (Shameless)
Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley)
Hank Azaria (Brockmire)
Patrick Stewart (Blunt Talk)
Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory)
Thomas Haden Church (Divorce)

SHOULDA BEEN CONTENDERS:
Ted Danson (The Good Place)
Kevin Bacon (I Love Dick)
Neil Patrick Harris (A Series Of Unfortunate Events)
Zach Galafanakis (Baskets)
Nick Nolte (Graves)

Lots of big names anchoring comedies now. I think Parsons is finally out this year. I don’t think he gets a nomination. I think the category is too tight. Glover and Tambor are both locks. I think Anderson and Ansari get in. If we go with six, Azaria could sneak in. It’s tough.

My Predictions: Glover, Tambor, Anderson, Ansari, Azaria, Macy

Actress:
THE CONTENDERS:
Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep)
Issa Rae (Insecure)
Tracee Ellis Ross (Blackish)
Sarah Jessica Parker (Divorce)
Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt)
Jane Fonda (Grace and Frankie)
Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie)
Allison Janney (Mom)
Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag)
Minnie Driver (Speechless)

SHOULDA BEEN CONTENDERS:
Kathryn Hahn (I Love Dick)
Kristen Bell (The Good Place)
Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek)
Pamela Adlon (Better Things)
Tig Notaro (One Mississippi)

Well, obviously Dreyfus is in. I mean, the big question is, can she be beaten? I think Issa Rae has a very good shot. As far as nominations go beyond those two… I think Parker will sneak a nod for Divorce, along with Ross for Blackish. The final spot? Who knows…

My Predictions: Louis-Dreyfus, Rae, Ross, Parker, Bridge, Kemper
