Emmy Nominees: Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 5/6, missing Ellis Ross

After a year off, Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish) returns to the line-up, beating out Pamela Adlon (Better Things) and two choices I’m very sad didn’t make the cut, Merritt Wever (Run) and Elle Fanning (The Great). I’m relieved that Linda Cardellini (Dead to Me) wasn’t snubbed since she really was the MVP of her season, joining returning costar Christina Applegate (Dead to Me). I’m thrilled Issa Rae (Insecure) is back, along with her show in the top race, and no one is surprised by rival frontrunners Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) and Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek). I might include a few more fantastic performances from this past season, but this list features some real talent.

Who should win? Rae or Cardellini
Who will win? I think O’Hara is far ahead in this race.
