Are you scratching your head over who to predict in this year’s Emmy race for Best Comedy Supporting Actor? Well, you’re in good company. This is turning out to be one of the most divisive Emmy races of the year, as many of our odds-makers are predicting a different funnyman to win.
But, wait — two-time champ Ty Burrell (“Modern Family”) is still in this race, too, as he’s the second-place pick of the Editors and Top 24 Users.
What to do with all of this conflicting information? Let’s take a look at Gold Derby’s exclusive graph that combines the racetrack odds of every group to see which actor has the highest support overall:
As you can see in the chart above, Burgess is the combined favorite to win the Emmy for Best Comedy Supporting Actor with leading 47% support (10/9 odds).
Hale is in second place to win with 29% (12/5 odds), with Burrell in third place at 16% (11/2 odds), Andre Braugher (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) in fourth place at 5% (20/1 odds), Keegan Michael Key (“Key & Peele”) in fifth place at 2% (50/1 odds) and Adam Driver (“Girls”) in last place at 1% (100/1 odds).

Last year, our Experts had an accuracy rate of 58.62% when it came to predicting the Emmy winners. That score tied them with both Gold Derby’s Editors and the Top 24 Users (those two dozen folks who did the best at predicting last year’s Emmys). Our Users scored 51.72% (Click on any of these groups to see what they got right and wrong last year.)
