Emmy Nominees: Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 3/6

It makes complete sense that a highly popular, relatively new comedienne, Tiffany Haddish (Saturday Night Live), would join the ever-popular Tina Fey (Saturday Night Live) as representative nominees of the late-night variety series. I don’t think that either Jane Lynch (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) or Molly Shannon (Will and Grace) did their best work this year, but I’ll allow both because they’re great actresses and were decently funny. Wanda Sykes (Black-ish) didn’t strike me as a necessary returning nominee after her work last year, but I’ll have to see her submitted episode to judge. I could not be more ecstatic about the inclusion of Maya Rudolph (The Good Place), who proved to be more essential than any burrito could have been.

Who should win? I’ve only seen half these, but it’s Rudolph in a heartbeat.
Who will win? I’ll go with Haddish over Fey.
