Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 6/8, missing Nash and Hoffman

I'd like to note that I technically got 100% in this category; they just tacked on two other nominees. Niecy Nash (Getting On) definitely fits that bill, recognized for a show that wasn't honored in any other race. I've never seen it, and I'm perplexed to say the least. I'm very happy for Gaby Hoffmann (Transparent), an unexpected double nominee this year. She was great, even if I might have recognized costar Amy Landecker ahead of her. Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory) is the lone defender of her show, which was snubbed elsewhere, and she's joined here by two other series representatives, Allison Janney (Mom) and Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live). Also here are Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Anna Chlumsky (Veep), and Jane Krakowski (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt).

Who should win? Chlumsky or Hoffmann, though I don't watch four of these shows so that's not quite fair to say.
Who will win? It will probably be Janney again, but I'll bet on Chlumsky based on her episode submission.
