Emmy Nominees: Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 3/6, missing Baker, Bassett, and Sykes

I did okay here, not expecting that “The Big Bang Theory” would, for the first time ever, earn just three technical bids and zero acting nominations. The sentimental nomination for the late Carrie Fisher (Catastrophe) was expected, as were mentions for past nominees Melissa McCarthy (Saturday Night Live) and Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live). I didn’t see Wanda Sykes (Black-ish) coming, but her inclusion makes sense, as does that of Angela Bassett (Master of None). I’m most pleased to see dependable veteran actress Becky Ann Baker (Girls) honored with her first-ever Emmy nomination, which is very deserved.

Who should win? I’ve only seen two of these, so I can’t really comment just yet.
Who will win? My bet is Fisher will take it.
