AFT Awards: Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

This is the third category of the 13th Annual AFT Television Awards, my personal choices for the best in television during the 2018-2019 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 Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

Last year’s nominees: Ted Danson, Keir Gilchrist, Bill Hader, Alex Lawther, Timothy Olyphant

Emmy nominees: Anthony Anderson, Ted Danson, Don Cheadle, Michael Douglas, Bill Hader, Eugene Levy

Finalists: Don Cheadle (Black Monday)

The nominees:
Hank Azaria (Brockmire)
Ted Danson (The Good Place)
Bill Hader (Barry)
Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method)

The winner:

Ramy Youssef (Ramy) was real, human, and relatable in his portrayal of a moderately observant Muslim man living in a secular modernity.

*Note: two of last year’s nominees, Keir Gilchrist and Timothy Olyphant, aren’t here because I still haven’t finished the most recent seasons of their show. I wish I had, but I’ll look forward to enjoying them down the road when I have time to catch up on all the streaming shows I need to marathon.
