Emmy Predictions: Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 10th. 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: Bob Newhart, Louis C.K., Bobby Cannavale, Will Forte, Nathan Lane, Justin Timberlake

The competition: At the head of the race are last year’s nominees Louis C.K. (Saturday Night Live), Nathan Lane (Modern Family), and Bob Newhart (The Big Bang Theory), all of who could easily repeat. Past winner Jimmy Fallon (Saturday Night Live) will probably be back too, though he’ll have competition from fellow hosts Jonah Hill (Saturday Night Live) and Andy Samberg (Saturday Night Live). Also in the running are veterans James Earl Jones (The Big Bang Theory), Carl Reiner (Two and a Half Men), and Henry Winkler (Parks and Recreation), as well as a trio of fresher faces: Gary Cole (Veep), Stephen Merchant (Modern Family), and Pablo Schreiber (Orange is the New Black).

The predicted nominees: Louis C.K., Gary Cole, Jimmy Fallon, Nathan Lane, Bob Newhart, Andy Samberg

The predicted winner: Samberg
