Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 4/6, picking Andre Braugher and Timothy Simons over Burrell and Walsh

Not too many surprises here, with Alec Baldwin (Saturday Night Live) joining the lineup for an immensely popular turn on a show that earned the most nominations it ever has by a lot this year. I’m surprised that Braugher is out while Ty Burrell (Modern Family) remains in for a show I gave up on that earned just three bids this year as compared with between ten and seventeen each year over the course of its first five seasons. I would also have chosen Simons and Sam Richardson over Tony Hale (Veep) and Matt Walsh (Veep) this season, and it’s disappointing to see a show get so much love but not for the most deserving people. Last year’s winner, Louie Anderson (Baskets), is back, as is Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt).

Who should win? I didn’t see much of Baldwin and I need to watch Burrell’s episode and Anderson’s before passing judgment. At the moment, I guess I’d pick Burgess?
Who will win? I think this has to go to Baldwin.
