AFT Awards: Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

This is the sixteenth 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 Actress in a Comedy Series
Last year’s nominees: May Calamawy, Rachel Grate, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Sally Phillips, Christine Woods

Emmy nominees: Angela Bassett, Bette Midler, Maya Rudolph, Maya Rudolph, Wanda Sykes, Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Finalists: Judith Light (The Politician), Maya Rudolph (The Good Place), Bette Midler (The Politician), Tiya Sircar (The Good Place)

The nominees:

Cush Jumbo (Trying)
Imelda Staunton (Trying)
Jane Krakowski (Curb Your Enthusiasm)
Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Run)

The winner:

Kaitlin Olson (Curb Your Enthusiasm) was the rare psychological match for Larry as Becky, aware of what she wanted and didn’t but still ready to voice her own fury at the inevitable selfishness of her ex-brother-in-law.
