Emmy Predictions: Best Guest 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: Pamela Adlon, Elizabeth Banks, Christine Baranski, Joan Cusack, Tina Fey, Gaby Hoffmann

The competition: After finally winning last year, Cusack didn’t appear on her show at all this past year. Tina Fey (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), who has been nominated five times in the past seven years, is all but guaranteed to return, and I think that she could become part of the first nominated duo in this race, for her co-hosting of “Saturday Night Live” with Amy Poehler. It’s likely that Christine Baranski (The Big Bang Theory) will be back after three nominations, the most recent of which was last year. Amy Schumer (Saturday Night Live) and Brie Larson (Saturday Night Live) seem like good bets, while past nominee Melissa McCarthy (Saturday Night Live) might also be nominated again. Anjelica Huston (Transparent) is a probable inclusion given her reputation and her role. Ellen Burstyn (Mom), Lisa Kudrow (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Claire Danes (Master of None), June Squibb (The Big Bang Theory), Melora Hardin (Transparent) and Michaela Watkins (Transparent) are also possibilities.

The predicted nominees: Christine Baranski, Tina Fey, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Anjelica Huston, Brie Larson, Amy Schumer

The predicted winner: Fey and Poehler
