Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 5/8, missing Clifford, Colman, and Goldberg

For the second year in a row, this category has eight nominees, though only four of them are the same even though just one of the eight wasn’t eligible. Last year’s winner Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) got joined by Marin Hinkle (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), which is marvelous indeed. I should have predicted Sarah Goldberg (Barry), and I’m happy that she’s here. I really have to watch the second season of a show whose first year I loved, and so I’ll have more to say about Sian Clifford (Fleabag) and Oscar winner Olivia Colman (Fleabag) after I do. Though I don’t watch her show, I’m happy that Betty Gilpin (GLOW) made the cut again as her show got dropped from the top race. Expectedly, we have perennial nominees Anna Chlumsky (Veep) for the last time and Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) representing her show solo for the first time in three years. It’s a shame that nominations announcer D’Arcy Carden didn’t get nominated for “The Good Place” even though the episode she would have submitted did for its writing.

Who should win? I haven’t seen a lot of these nominees, so I’ll hold off judgment until then.
Who will win? It’s hard to say without having seen so much, but I’ll pick Colman for now.
