    We are starting to build our predictions center for the 2017 Emmys (launching in late February). Help us compile lists for the comedy categories of all the eligible/worthy contenders. Studios and networks will not be able to confirm genre and acting placements (lead/supporting) until the spring, but we need to take our best educated guesses in the short term.

    I would argue that Ted Danson is supporting and William Jackson Harper is lead.

    Atlanta won the PGA: who thinks it will win the Emmy. I have a hard time seeing the academy going for this.

    Boring as it sounds, I suspect Veep and Jeffrey Tambor are repeating. I bet, however, Atlanta scores Writing and/or Directing.

    I think Glover has a strong chance of taking down Tambor – he will benefit from the new voting system as I suspect a lot of people will have him as their #1. His winning would feel similar to Rami and Tatiana.

    Not saying they are by any means frontrunners but most contenders up to this point have already been mentioned so I will just point out High Maintenance on HBO, Easy on Netflix, and Younger on TVLand as three shows with some potential.
