Emmy Predictions: Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 13th. Chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Tracy Morgan (Saturday Night Live), Martin Mull (Veep), Bob Newhart (The Big Bang Theory), Bradley Whitford (Transparent)

The competition: Just one of last year’s nominees, winner Peter Scolari (Girls), is eligible again this year. Peter MacNicol (Veep) was originally nominated last year but then deemed to have appeared in too many episodes, so his lone appearance in season six might net him another shot at a trophy. A few past nominees - Steve Buscemi (Portlandia), Jimmy Fallon (Saturday Night Live), Jon Hamm (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and Fred Willard (Modern Family) – could contend again, as could performers previously nominated for other roles, like Josh Charles (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Hugh Laurie (Veep). Riz Ahmed (Girls), Aziz Ansari (Saturday Night Live), and Matthew Rhys (Girls) could benefit from buzz for other roles. Additional possibilities include Usman Ally (Veep), Shoukath Ansari (Master of None), Dave Chappelle (Saturday Night Live), Tom Hanks (Saturday Night Live), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Saturday Night Live), and Peter Riegert (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt).

The predicted nominees: Ansari, Fallon, Hanks, Laurie, MacNicol, Scolari

The predicted winner: Ansari
