Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting 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: Andre Braugher, Tituss Burgess, Ty Burrell, Adam Driver, Tony Hale, Keagan Michael-Key

The competition: All six of last year’s nominees are in the running again. I don’t think the lineup will change too much, though Michael-Key is definitely the most vulnerable. My prediction is that Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) will benefit from positive Broadway buzz and return to the race again, and costars Ed O’Neill (Modern Family) and Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family) could also be back too. Louie Anderson (Baskets) seems to be high on a lot of people’s prediction lists, but I don’t think it will happen. They could have been nominated last year, but maybe this is when Laurence Fishburne (Black-ish) and Jaime Camil (Jane the Virgin) will sneak into the race. Or is there someone else altogether that we’re underestimating?
