Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

My predictions 6/8

I would have liked to see Hiam Abbass (Ramy) nominated, but I’m pretty happy with what ended up happening here instead. Yvonne Orji (Insecure) has been doing great work on her show for four seasons now, and it’s about time she got nominated. Though I don’t watch regularly, I appreciate that there are new variety players nominated each year, with Cecily Strong (Saturday Night Live) joining past winner Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) this time. I’m not sad that an Emmy favorite who won a guest bid for the same role last year – Jane Lynch (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) – wasn’t nominated, while two of her deserving costars, two-time winner Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) and Marin Hinkle (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), were. Betty Gilpin (GLOW) is once again the only representative of her show, which is totally fine, and I look forward to watching her submitted episode. Annie Murphy (Schitt’s Creek) finally made the cut for the final season of her show, as did D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place), which is great.

Who should win? Orji
Who will win? It’s a competitive category, and I’m actually going to choose Orji over the much likelier threepeat by Borstein.
