Emmy Predictions: Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 14th. As always, chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: Anthony Anderson, Louis C.K., Don Cheadle, Will Forte, Matt LeBlanc, William H. Macy, Jeffrey Tambor

The competition: There were seven nominees last year, and two – C.K. and won’t be back for sure since their series, not yet cancelled, didn’t air last season. I suspect the rest will be back, although it’s far from guaranteed for anyone except Tambor. The two top contenders to score slot number six are Aziz Ansari (Master of None) and Gael Garcia Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle), and it’s also possible that two Golden Globe nominees whose shows have since been cancelled, Rob Lowe (The Grinder) and Patrick Stewart (Blunt Talk), could squeeze in. Zach Galifianakis (Baskets) is a contender, as Rob Delaney (Catastrophe) could be, as well a near-nominee who has been on the cusp of a nomination for two years now, Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), and past nominee Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory).

The predicted nominees: Anthony Anderson, Aziz Ansari, Don Cheadle, Will Forte, William H. Macy, Jeffrey Tambor

The predicted winner: Tambor
