I keep reading and hearing about how Amy Schumer is going to be nominated for an emmy this year, but I’m having a hard time beliving that will happen. Now somebody correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think that someone coming from a variety show has been nomiated in the best comedy actor/actress categories. If she was competing in the supporting category then I would nominate her in a instant. I understand that she is the star on the rise, but I feel like the voters will go for someone that actually plays a single character and they develop that character. If anybody can give me reasons why she’ll be nominated please reply, I would love to hear why I’m wrong.
Before I hit post, I am going for Josh Charles in the guest comedy category. The guest categories are always the hardest to predict and sometimes going for a left field choice is right way to go.
This is actually the first year that variety performers are allowed to submit as comedy leads.
