Kate McKinnon, Saturday Night Live

Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) is the only other past nominee still eligible other than those listed above or in the poll. All other past nominees’ shows have ended or the nominees have switched categories.April 25, 2017 at 10:42 am #1202076029
Janney? Did she switch to Lead?
WOW, she did. Just saw that.April 25, 2017 at 10:46 am #1202076033
What do you think of Kathryn Hahn’s chance for Transparent? It was the first season she had her own storyline, and appeared in all of the episodes.April 25, 2017 at 10:51 am #1202076034
I’m guessing Krakowski comes back, and probably Rita Moreno will take the last spot. Hoffmann could still potentially be dropped. I think Bowen could make a comeback but I think Bialik is done. There aren’t many new contenders besides Moreno that I think are big threats to be nominated. Maybe Andrea Martin if anyone watches Great News.April 25, 2017 at 10:52 am #1202076039
1) Judith Light
2) Kate McKinnon
3) Anna Chlumpsky
6) I am debating between Moreno and Krakowski but I will go with Krakowski for now
Alternate: Rita Moreno ms Gabby Hoffman
In a perfect world: Allison Williams, Yvonne Orji and Donna Lynne Chanplin

Everybody is predicting Jane Krakowski to come back and the sparseness of the category makes it hard not to, but I am hesitant. I certainly do not agree with her ranking ahead of Gaby Hoffmann. Why was Krakowski snubbed last year? Her show added a lead nomination and she would go on to win Critics’ Choice for the same season.
What makes Krakowski even more likely than Mayim Bialik or Julie Bowen? They were dropped at the same time as Krakowski, they have better track records in this category and their shows got SAG ensemble nominations. Getting nominated for a first season, then never again is not that unusual (Betty White, Max Greenfield, Kelly Macdonald, Michelle Forbes). The list of people who got snubbed for the second season, then brought back for the the third pretty much begins and ends with Jon Voight. Two things brought Voight back. One was Ray Donovan rising at the Emmys; Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is falling. The other is the ballot change in which half of voters got theirs reverse-alphabetically, which does not help Krakowski. Something that further complicates matters is that we do not even know if Krakowski was in the top six when she was nominated because there were eight nominees. Krakowski being in the top six for the first time for the third season of a show that the Emmys only kind of like is a weird proposition.April 25, 2017 at 10:54 am #1202076046
-Krakowski has recent history of being snubbed and then returning the following year, so wouldn’t be surprised to see her back.
-Modern Family is having a pretty rough season, I don’t see how Bowen comes back.April 25, 2017 at 10:55 am #1202076048
I’m starting to think Allison Williams could really suprise. She has a final season bump of a great season tht they are at least familiar with, she had a great season, and she has a lot of buzz from Get Out which might (I said might I didn’t say it will) turn into awards buzz depending on the strength of Get Out later in the year.April 25, 2017 at 10:59 am #1202076050
Krakowski was only brought back previously for a final season, which brings with it a marked increase in buzz and nostalgia. I am not even sure if Emmy voters will have time to watch this season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
I do have her in sixth at this point. I might go back to Molly Shannon. I thought that she made sense because she has goodwill, is a recent nominee for a niche HBO comedy and you would think that the new ones would get something, but I have heard that she did not have much to do. I have only seen the pilot; I should go back and finish Divorce to assess things better. (Note that I do not consider Sarah Jessica Parker a factor.)April 25, 2017 at 11:08 am #1202076061
Prayer circles for Sherri Shepherd, Yvonne Orji, and Allison Williams!
Most likely Jane Krakowski returns if “UKS” wows this season. But someone has to get Niecy Nash’s slot as well as La Janney’s.
Moreno and Lewis aren’t getting in. Bialik seems to be done. Vergara is already done. Double nods for the “Transparent” ladies, McKinnon, Chlumsky, and … Bowen??? That doesn’t seem right to me. “Modern Family” needs to be cancelled already. I think we’re getting some new nominees this year!April 25, 2017 at 11:17 am #1202076075
I agree with atypical for the most part about the new set of nominees. I think we will get some real suprises as none of the nominees seem like essential staples to the category. I disagree with him about Moreno and Lewis though.April 25, 2017 at 11:27 am #1202076089
I am pretty sure we will have many surprises this year. Such as:
Yvonne Orji, Carol Kane, Amy Landecker, Kathryn Hahn, Andrea Martin, Allison Williams, Jenifer Lewis, Olivia Colman.April 25, 2017 at 11:39 am #1202076104
In a perfect world Mikey Madison would get a nomination for her astonishing work in Better Things, specifically in the episode “Future Fever”.
My personal line up (of what has aired so no UKS ladies) in no particular order would be:
Donna Lynne Chanplin
yes, I know my lineup is super long but this category is stacked with great performances that will go ignored. It’s a shame really because this category has some of the best contenders but they will probably be ignored.
Also, even though it isn’t eligible, Shola Adewusi gives On of the best performances of the year in Chewing Gum, it’s a shame it can’t compete.April 25, 2017 at 11:46 am #1202076115
I would have said a year ago that Leslie Jones would easily slide in, but she has seemingly had no part in the politics-based resurgence of Saturday Night Live, so the timing seems off.
One Day at a Time is not a thing.
There is a chance that one of the Girls gets in, as there is a history of people finally getting in for final seasons (Laurie Metcalf, Kristin Davis, Matthew Fox and so on), but I think that it hurts that they were overshadowed by Adam Driver.
I would not be too surprised if one or both of the Transparent actresses were dropped. Serialized dramedies never last long at the Emmys. And nominations can come out of nowhere. Niecy Nash defied logic. FYC: character actress Kristen Schaal
