Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 3/6, missing Bayer, Jones, and Hahn

Well, talk about enthusiasm for the late-night show that spends most of its time lampooning our current president. After Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) won last year, she’s back with both Vanessa Bayer (Saturday Night Live) and Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live) in a strong showing of industry support for the sketch series. Gaby Hoffmann, who was the only actress from her show nominated in its first year, is out in favor of season standout Judith Light (Transparent), back for her second nod, and Kathryn Hahn (Transparent), finally earning some awards recognition for a pretty solid if mostly tangential role. Rounding out the list is returning nominee Anna Chlumsky (Veep), who found out about being included in a supremely awkward way while she was announcing the nominees.

Who should win? I don’t watch SNL regularly, so I’m not sure, but out of the rest, I’m not sure I could pick – they’re all great.
Who will win?: I would have though Light, but now I think McKinnon will repeat.
