Emmy Nominees: Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 2/6

I overestimated the wrong people from a show that has historically dominated this category, with only Jerrod Carmichael (Saturday Night Live) showing up from the long-running variety series. That made room for two actors from this year’s most popular comedy series, James Lance (Ted Lasso) and Sam Richardson (Ted Lasso), and an unexpected recurring player who’s been severely underappreciated for most of his career, Christopher McDonald (Hacks). I’m happy to see Nathan Lane (Only Murders in the Building) and the great choice of Bill Hader (Curb Your Enthusiasm), his show’s only acting bid this year.

Who should win? I haven’t seen Carmichael’s episode yet, but from this list, I’d choose Hader or Lane.
Who will win? I think Lane can win this.
