AFT Awards: Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

This is the twelfth category of the 12th Annual AFT Television Awards, my personal choices for the best in television during the 2017-2018 season. This year, I’m including a shorter list, with just nominees and a few finalists, if applicable. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them.

Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

Last year’s nominees: Jane Adams, Laura Benanti, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Britt Robertson, Portia de Rossi

Emmy nominees: Tina Fey, Tiffany Haddish, Jane Lynch, Maya Rudolph, Molly Shannon, Wanda Sykes

Finalists: Andrea Savage (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Samara Weaving (SMILF), Maggie Lawson (Santa Clarita Diet), Alysia Reiner (Orange is the New Black), Rosario Dawson (Jane the Virgin)

The nominees:

Maya Rudolph (The Good Place)
Becki Newton (Divorce)
Tiya Sircar (The Good Place)
Andrea Savage (Episodes)

The winner:

Nasim Pedrad (Curb Your Enthusiasm) was perfectly in her element as a bride who wasn’t about to let typical gender roles or physical expectations – or a nosy bald man – do anything to get in the way of her special day.
