Emmy Nominees: Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 5/6, missing Anderson

This is the least surprising category and also the only one where someone didn’t really get snubbed. Honestly, I have a feeling that even Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm) doesn’t care that he wasn’t nominated. Golden Globe winner Ramy Youssef (Ramy) joins last year’s five eligible nominees in returning, though sadly his show couldn’t crack the top spot, which is really a shame. Both Anthony Anderson (Black-ish) and Don Cheadle (Black Monday) held on to their spots, joining Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method) and departing nominees Ted Danson (The Good Place) and Eugene Levy (Schitt’s Creek), who will likely battle it out for the win. I half-expected to see Steve Carell here for “Space Force,” which ended up earning four technical bids.

Who should win? Youssef all the way.
Who will win? I think Levy beats Danson.
