Emmy Nominees: Best Comedy Series

My predictions: 7/8

It’s frustrating, because I had come to terms with this list, and didn’t really think that “Peacemaker” would be able to go all the way. But, after securing its two lead actors nominations, why couldn’t “The Great” have rounded out this list instead of Curb Your Enthusiasm (4 nominations), which managed no other major bids? Freshmen Abbott Elementary (7) and Only Murders in the Building (17) performed well, as did a returning show, What We Do in the Shadows. Though it held on to its major nominations, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (10) is down to its lowest nominations count, while Barry (14) split the difference between its first and second season totals a few years back. Hacks (17) upped its count while Ted Lasso (20) matched its total, positioning those two shows to once again go head-to-head in the major races.

Who should win? I need to watch “Abbott Elementary” but otherwise I think I’d choose “Hacks” or “Barry.”
Who will win? Though it will probably be “Ted Lasso,” I’ll go ahead and predict Hacks right now.
