Emmy Predictions: Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 12th. As always, chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: Becky Ann Baker, Angela Bassett, Carrie Fisher, Melissa McCarthy, Wanda Sykes, Kristen Wiig

The competition: Just one of these women is on the ballot again, and that’s Wanda Sykes (Black-ish), who is hardly a lock but could easily return. Two nominees from two years ago, both of whom are also starring in popular shows, Christine Baranski (The Big Bang Theory) and Laurie Metcalf (The Big Bang Theory), are eligible again, as is previous winner Tina Fey (Saturday Night Live) and previous nominee Blythe Danner (Will and Grace), whose show just returned after more than a decade off the air. 90-year-old Oscar winner Estelle Parsons (Roseanne) could land her first Emmy nomination, as could Lauren Graham (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Tiffany Haddish (Saturday Night Live). Other possibilities include a host of former nominees eligible for different series, including Elizabeth Banks (Curb Your Enthusaism), Minnie Driver (Will and Grace), Jane Lynch (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Jane Lynch (Will and Grace), Elizabeth Perkins (Curb Your Enthusiasm), and Molly Shannon (Will and Grace).

The predicted nominees: Danner, Fey, Graham, Haddish, Lynch, Parsons

The predicted winner: I think Parsons wins if she gets nominated.
