    Going with Anderson for the upset (to compliment my Black-ish prediction in Comedy Series), though Tambor’s the safe pick and Ansari shouldn’t be underestimated.

    Even though her competitors sent fine tapes, JLD is like King Kong surrounded by Keebler Elves.

    I’m hoping for an upset in the Actress category. I want Metcalf the most, but if it’s anyone else than overrated JLD, I’ll be fine.

    Will Win: Dreyfus and Tambor
    Should Win: Dreyfus and Anderson
    Could Win: N/A and Anderson
    Dark Horse Spoiler: N/A and Ansari
    Bottom line Dreyfus can’t lose, it certainly is boring watching her win every year, but at least she’s always great so I can’t get too mad. As far as Actor goes, Anderson would win by a country mile if episodes still mattered, but really anyone but Tambor should win, maybe not Aziz though, why did you submit Parents? Why?

    Of all the four acting winners from last year, Tambor IMO is the most vulnerable one. Anderson is so contagious in Black-ish that he could easily emerge as the winner.

    Is Tambor’s hype as big this year as it was last year? I could see Anderson or Aziz winning, tbh.

    Ansari should have picked “Indians on TV” or “Mornings” for his tape. I could see Anderson upsetting for sure with “Hope,” but I’m predicting Tambor until he loses.

    Dreyfus is winning, period.

    Tambor is 90% a lock, but Anderson has a lot of buzz, he’s the RU but not winning, not this year.

    I kind of think everything has come together for Anderson to win. Last year it was like okay maybe a year or two, but there is support for the show and they are watching the show, so I think he will win based on that.

    I still don’t like how Julia-Louis Dreyfus kept stealing the Emmy away from Amy Poehler in years past.

    Amy Poehler deserves to have as many Emmys as Julia-Louis Dreyfus.

    When voters watch the tapes submitted, the performances are all subjective to what the voters like. Ultimately, what one finds as funny/comedic in one episode may not seem to be that to another voter, and vice versa.

    I know JLD has this in the bag this year, for example, but I found Metcalf’s performance in her submission to be just as good, but voters watching the episodes will more than likely not agree.

    I felt that Laurie Metcalfe gave an amazing performance in her submission and would be a deserving winner for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
