Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

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

Last year’s nominees: Anna Chlumsky, Gaby Hoffmann, Allison Janney, Judith Light, Kate McKinnon, Niecy Nash

The competition: Count out two of last year’s nominees, since two-time winner Janney has been promoted to the lead race and Nash’s show ended. Judith Light (Transparent) is a sure thing thanks to a superb showcase this past season, and last year’s winner Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) should be a lock too considering the timing of the election and her role on the show during it. Anna Chlumsky (Veep) seems like a good bet to return also, though I’m less confident about Gaby Hoffmann (Transparent) being solid. Her costars Cherry Jones (Transparent), Anjelica Huston (Transparent), and Kathryn Hahn (Transparent) might attract more votes for this season. I don’t personally believe that Rita Moreno (One Day at a Time) will make the cut despite most predicting her but it is possible. New contenders like Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) or Molly Shannon (Divorce) could break into the race, but I think voters are likelier to go back to old staples who weren’t nominated last year like Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), Jane Krakowski (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), or Julie Bowen (Modern Family).

The predicted nominees: Chlumsky, Hoffman, Jones, Krakowski, Light, McKinnon

The predicted winner: Light
