Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 14th. Please refer to my Emmy musings for this category for a detailed analysis of the contenders, and, as always, chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: Julie Bowen, Jane Krakowski, Jane Lynch, Holland Taylor, Sofia Vergara, Kristen Wiig

The competition: With all six women from last year eligible, it may be as simple as swapping out the least likely candidate, occasional nominee Holland Taylor (Two and a Half Men), for a guaranteed nominee from a new show, Betty White (Hot in Cleveland). Last year’s winner Jane Lynch (Glee) will surely be back, as should Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) and Julie Bowen (Modern Family). Kristen Wiig (Modern Family) and Jane Krakowski (30 Rock) are somewhat more vulnerable, and could be left off in favor of past nominee Jenna Fischer (The Office) and a slaw of new contenders, including two-time past nominee Wendie Malick (Hot in Cleveland), Phyllis Somerville (The Big C), Tamsin Greig (Episodes), and Vanessa Williams (Desperate Housewives).

The predicted nominees: Bowen, Krakowski, Lynch, Vergara, White, Wiig

The predicted winner: White
