Emmy Predictions: Best Comedy Series

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Tuesday, July 13th. As always, chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dead to Me, The Good Place, Insecure, The Kominsky Method, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Schitt’s Creek, What We Do in the Shadows

The competition: I wrote about this category for The Film Experience about six weeks ago. Since then, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist got cancelled – during voting – and I had the chance to watch Master of None, which didn’t enthrall me as much as I had anticipated. It’s probably safe to bump Girls5eva up to the top eight, but I’m still not confident about endorsing Mythic Quest or Cobra Kai, two series I’ve never seen at all, which of course doesn’t mean they won’t score. Though it’s probably not smart, I’ll keep Zoey in there for the hell of it and hope for the best. If it was Shrill or Dickinson or Generation that scored a slot, I’d be absolutely thrilled.

The predicted nominees: Black-ish, The Flight Attendant, Girls5eva, Hacks, The Kominsky Method, Pen15, Ted Lasso, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist

The predicted winner: This has essentially already been won by Ted Lasso, right?
