Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actress 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: Mayim Bialik, Julie Bowen, Anna Chlumsky, Gaby Hoffmann, Allison Janney, Jane Krakowski, Kate McKinnon, Niecy Nash

The competition: There were a staggering eight nominees last year, and every single one of them is eligible again this year. I feel like it’s somewhat arbitrary to pick who will be left out since I can’t imagine we’ll have eight nominees again, but I’m betting that, at the very least, Nash was a fluke. Bialik and Bowen may not be the smartest ones to cast aside, but that’s what I’m predicting. I think that Hoffman’s costar Judith Light (Transparent) will be included after being snubbed last year, and I’m not sure she has much competition. Past nominee Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) could show up again, but I doubt it, and awards favorite Dianne Wiest (Life in Pieces) could be nominated too. And it’s always possible that Melanie Lynskey (Togetherness) could score a nomination even though she’s improperly categorized here.

The predicted nominees: Anna Chlumsky, Gaby Hoffmann, Allison Janney, Jane Krakowski, Judith Light, Kate McKinnon

The predicted winner: Light
