Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 4/6, missing Carrigan and Root

I’m really happy that voters are watching one HBO show and paying attention to the value of all the supporting players, though I wish that was true for another HBO show too. I loved Anthony Carrigan (Barry) so much in season one, and I’ll take the makeup nomination now, and I’m glad that the eternally underappreciated Stephen Root (Barry) is here along with last year’s winner Henry Winkler (Barry). I’m disappointed, however, that only two-time winner Tony Hale (Veep) made the cut for his show instead of the truly deserving Timothy Simons or Sam Richardson. So much for Tituss Burgess getting recognized for the final season of his series, and, not that it was likely, but Tony Shalhoub (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) wasn’t joined by any other cast members from his show. Though his series majorly underperformed, Alan Arkin (The Kominsky Method) still made the cut.

Who should win? I’d probably vote for Shalhoub, Root, or Arkin based on their work this season, but I’m fine with anyone other than Hale again.
Who will win? It will probably be Hale.
