Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 3/6, picking only Burrell, Burgess, and Braugher

I'm not sure how to react to this category. It's strange to me that Adam Driver (Girls) is still here when his show was virtually ignored elsewhere, and while I appreciate Tony Hale (Veep) so much, there are so many incredible male supporting players on that show that they could easily fill one if not two categories. Ty Burrell (Modern Family) is officially the only member of his cast to appear here, joined just by Julie Bowen and guest star Elizabeth Banks in the lowest-ever haul for the show. While I don't always love Titus Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), I won't protest his nomination. Ditto Andre Braugher (Brooklyn Nine-Nine). And I'll note that I predicted Keegan Michael-Key (Key and Peele) last year, though I've never seen his show. I'm sad that Jaime Camil isn't here, but “Jane the Virgin” didn't merit any real mention anywhere. This isn't a bad list, just a bit of a random one.

Who should win? I don't watch two of the shows, but I'd pick Hale or Burrell
Who will win? My guess right now is that Burgess and Pinot Noir can bring it home, but it may be Burrell again.
