Emmy Nominees: Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 4/6, picking Ellie Kemper and Gina Rodriguez over Schumer and Tomlin

I'm very disappointed about the two snubs in this category. “Jane the Virgin” managed just one nomination – an enormously deserved bid for a category I didn't know existed, Best Narrator – despite being the most charming show on television. “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” was recognized for Best Comedy Series and in all five other eligible acting categories, despite the fact that Kemper is its most endearing part. I do think that Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie) serving as the sole representative for her show is fine since she is its most entertaining player. I've never seen Amy Schumer (Inside Amy Schumer) on her show, though I do think it's strange that she can compete her and then her show places elsewhere in separate variety categories. I correctly called Lisa Kudrow (The Comeback) being included, joining two actresses on departing shows, Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie) and Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), and one on a red-hot series that could last forever, Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep).

Who should win? Poehler, naturally, or Louis-Dreyfus
Who will win? I think that Poehler can pull it off unless Louis-Dreyfus triumphs again
