    My rankings (7/28/15)
    1.Tituss Burgess
    2. Tony Hale
    3.Andre Braugher
    4.Ty Burrell
    5.Adam Driver
    6.Keegan-Micheal Key

    This is a race between Burgess and Hale. I cant really see anyone else winning. Burrell submitted horribly, 4.5 minutes of screentime out of a 21 minute show. He has no real laugh out loud moments, and most of his screen time is just him talking really loud in the backround while his daughters are talking. Unfortunately, he could win with this new system. Andre Braugher has a good submission, but he plays it straight the whole time and doesnt really show range. If Driver wins, its because the Emmy voters wanted to recognize an up and coming star. Key doesnt stand a chance

    It’s just so sad that Nick Offerman isn’t here. To see a showdown of Offerman (“Leslie and Ron”), Burgess, and Hale would have been as thrilling as seeing Michael Kelly/Jonathan Banks/Ben Mendelsohn in Drama. 

    If Hale wins, that means that the same three actors have dominated the last six years:
    – 2010: Eric Stonestreet
    – 2011: Ty Burrell
    – 2012: Eric Stonestreet
    – 2013: Tony Hale
    – 2014: Ty Burrell
    – 2015:

    Please let it go to Burgess.

    I don’t know what Burrell was thinking with that submission I was surprised Adam Driver was even  nominated considering the uneven season of GIRLS where he didn’t appear in a few episodes. Key surprised me because I didn’t know he was on their radar and he has no chance of winning because the best scene in his episode is the Anger translator I don’t remember if I saw Braugher’s episode but I doubt he can win then there is Tony Hale who could win again with a very compelling scene of VEEP where he impactfully tells Selina he does not feel appreciated then there is Titus Burgess who I predicted to win as soon as I finished watching Kimmy S. Burgess and Hale both have great chances but I pick Burgess to win as I feel sad for the snub of Nick Offerman.

    Braugher does have a lot of screen time in his episode for a supporting role (10.5 minutes out of 21). I havent seen Key’s episode yet, but I’m assuming he is in almost all of it. Maybe the amount of screen time they both have will help them

    Key – Don’t watch. Can’t be bothered to watch his submission either.

    Driver – I like him and I wanted him to win a few years ago, but this year he didn’t have a lot to do.

    Burell –  Loved his first win, but after 6 years of the same thing I’m over his performance. It’s shtick-y now, and it will be disappointing if they lazily pick him again. He shouldn’t have won last year.

    Hale – he yells at Selina and that’s pretty much all I remember. Nothing about his performance makes me think “he deserves an Emmy”, but he won with a middling tape last time, so I have to put my personal opinion aside and acknowledge that he could win again.

    Braugher – such a great performance. He was robbed of the Emmy last year. His monologue in this episode is hilarious. I love his deadpan delivery. If it weren’t for Tituss, I’d want him to win.

    Burgess – What is there to say that hasn’t already been said? He deserves to win this. His submission is excellent, as was his season-long performance too. I’m scared the popularity factor will win out and Burell will win, though.

    personal preference based on performance:
    1. Tituss Burgess
    2. Andre Braugher
    3. Adam Driver
    4. Tony Hale
    5. Ty Burell
    6. Keegan-Michael Key (don’t watch)

    prediction
    1. Ty Burell
    2. Tony Hale
    3. Tituss Burgess
    4. Andre Braugher
    5. Keegan-Michael Key
    6. Adam Driver

     I was surprised Adam Driver was even  nominated considering the uneven season of GIRLS where he didn’t appear in a few episodes.  

    IMO the only reason Driver got in was because he is a huge up and coming star (he will be the new Star Wars villian) and he seems to have a lot of buzz in the industry

    Ty Burell’s submission is very interesting as he does not appear very much, however it tuggs at the main emotions present in ‘Spring-a-Ding-Fling’, as it once again focuses on his daughters. This combined with the physical comedy in the eppisode could very well lead to a 3rd win for Ty Burell.

    But the thing about Burrell’s submission last year vs. this year is that the focus on his daughter was him and his daughter (last year) versus his oldest daughter and his youngest daughter (this year). He’s out of the equation of the heartwarming relationship we’re supposed to care about in this episode. All he does is interact with Luke and make the girls remember why they love each other. So it doesn’t really have a lot to do with him, so much as it’s just Hyland and Winter carrying the story. Additionally, you see the physical comedy, but it’s not like we even see him performing it because he’s illuminated behind a screen. The tape is not really that strong. I would be disappointed to see Burrell win again (as I was last season, although he deserved more than one Emmy for the first few seasons of the show).

    His final quote however ‘I made that’ i think will really stick in the minds of emmy voters. He also has a very emmy friendly role in which voters could use as a cop out choice.

    Andre Braugher

    It was a decent episode where he was one of the main focus.
    He is the straight man and the comedy is suppose to be not laugh out loud.
    While he is good in the role and where he calls out Kyra Sedgwick towards the
    end was my favorite part, it did not scream Emmy. I wanted more fireworks.

    Tituss Burgess

    This very much reminds me of the finale episode of 30 Rock
    that Jane Krakowski submitted and lost for. The performance was remembers
    because of the song. And re-watching this episode, there is not much more than
    this song which is just all pieced together with good editing. It certainly is
    a memorable performance and really the thing that I remembered the most from
    the entire season.

    Ty Burrell

    I can see why he submitted this episode because of the
    classic behind the screen physical comedy. This was a weak episode in general
    for Modern Family and I know he had better this season. 

    Adam Driver

    Now I will admit, I hate this show. I have watched his
    previous submissions and wondered why he submitted for lack of screentime or
    impact. Now this episode, his perfomance has really stuck with me. I watched
    all these episodes back to back a few days ago and his remains BUT he is not
    funny. I have a hard time voting for COMEDY SUPPORTING ACTOR for this role.

    Tony Hale

    I thought this was a great performance by Hale. It has his
    classic performance but that speech at the end finally gave his character some
    depth. I could support another win with this episode but don’t see this as a 2
    time winning character.

    Keegan-Michael Key

    Still cannot find this episode to watch.

     

    Overall I was not blown away by anyone in this category. No
    one made me scream give him the Emmy now!

    If I was a voter, I’d rank:

    1-   
    Tony Hale

    2-   
    Adam Driver

    3-   
    Tituss Burgess

    4-   
    Andre Braugher

    5-   
    Ty Burrell

     

    Predictions

    1-   
    Tony Hale

    2-   
    Tituss Burgess

    3-   
    Andre Braugher

    4-   
    Ty Burrell

    5-   
    Adam Driver

    Driver is great but he is never funny. He’s one of the more dramatic characters of the show that I consider a Dramady anyways 

    All of the episodes with Braugher head to head with Sedgwick were amazing I’m still bumbed she didn’t get into guest

    Hale of course did great and I could see him winning

    Burgess is beyond great and hilarious. Between the song, “I’ll give you 50 bugs”, and “Lillian, that dog looks nothing like me!”, he is a powerhouse in this episode.
     
    I haven’t watched Key’s episode in a while so I can’t really remember all that happened

    I don’t care about Modern Family so I haven’t seen Burrell’s

    If Burgess doesn’t win I’m going to cry.
