AFT Awards: Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series

This is the fifteenth category of the 14th Annual AFT Television Awards, my personal choices for the best in television during the 2019-2020 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 Guest Actor in a Comedy Series
Last year’s nominees: Luis Guzman, Jake Lacy, Zachary Levi, Rufus Sewell, Tyrel Jackson Williams

Emmy nominees: Adam Driver, Luke Kirby, Eddie Murphy, Dev Patel, Brad Pitt, Fred Willard

Finalists: David Corenswet (The Politician), Griffin Gluck (Love Life), Freddie Fox (The Great), Skyler Gisondo (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Chris Williams (Upload)

The nominees:

Timothy Olyphant (Curb Your Enthusiasm)
Justin Kirk (Kidding)
Matt Lauria (Dickinson)
Zachary Levi (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)

The winner:

Jon Hamm (Curb Your Enthusiasm) managed to mock his own persona as a nice guy who enjoys overacting by becoming something else entirely, mimicking Larry to a terrifyingly accurate degree.
