Since we already have a thread for most of the other categories, I thought we could discuss this here.
So as of now, it seems like those safe to return are:
2. Tracee Ellis Ross
3. Lily Tomlin
4. Ellie Kemper
Who do we think will get in? Are any of the returning nominees not safe for a nomination?
I think some of the ladies in contention are Jane Fonda (SAG nominee), Sarah Jessica Parker (GG nominee, Emmy darling), Phoebe Waller Bridge (Critics Choice nominee), Pamela Adlon (previous nominee and respected character actress), Constance Wu (Critics Choice), and Issa Rae (GG nominee).
Looking back at a previous thread, I was surprised to see people predicting Tracy Ullmann. I didn’t even know her show was out yet!February 23, 2017 at 8:31 am #1202019621
I would look out for Emmy Rossum. That WGA nomination and Macy winning SAG gives me hope. I am also predicting Rodriguez to finally get in as of now. I do think that Constance Wu and Issa Rae are MAJOR threats. And then Phoebe Waller Bridge is a dark horse. I don’t think SJP has a chance. Sharon Horgan might be able to break through as well since she got that writing nom and I think h the show will be helped by the tragic death of Carrie Fisher.February 23, 2017 at 9:04 am #1202019658
GoldDerby is trying Emmy Rossum’s nomination to happen for half a decade now and it just won’t.February 23, 2017 at 11:18 am #1202019801
Those last two spots are definitely a conundrum (assuming the top four get in) – this category isn’t as stacked as it has been in years past.
Right now I am going with Pamela Adlon and SJP but I don’t feel especially confident in either. I am reluctant to predict stand outs from veteran shows if their show hasn’t really gained any steam since last go around (i.e. Wu, Rossum).
I think Bridge and Rae may be too niche for voters but I don’t feel that strongly at this moment.February 23, 2017 at 11:20 am #1202019803
I don’t think Sarah Jessica Parker gets in. Nobody really knows what Divorce is (not to mention it’s not good at all). And Emmy Rossum isn’t happening.February 23, 2017 at 11:22 am #1202019807
I am fairly confident Pamela Adalon will get in. In fact, I’m not so confident Lilly Tomlin will stay in.February 23, 2017 at 11:23 am #1202019809
Also there is no way in hell SJP is getting in.February 23, 2017 at 11:26 am #1202019813
Maybe Issa Rae? Was Insecure any good?February 23, 2017 at 11:32 am #1202019825
Maybe Issa Rae? Was Insecure any good?
Insecure is a great show and she’s great in it but I will be shocked if it gets any kind of major nomination. If it was a huge phenomenon like Orange is the New Black was four years ago, then I’d say it would have a good chance. But it’s not, so I doubt it.February 23, 2017 at 12:02 pm #1202019846

Issa Rae was legitimately great in Insecure, and she would have my full support for a win if nominated. I thought she had a good chance of winning the Globe, but sadly I feel like her buzz has died down too much.February 23, 2017 at 12:05 pm #1202019849

I really hope Adlon gets in. She was so good! I’m glad to see a couple people saying she has a chance and it’s not just my wishful thinking. I’m not ready to drop Tomlin yet, though. What with her SAG lifetime achievement, I feel like she’s a little more in the spotlight.February 23, 2017 at 12:41 pm #1202019868
I currently have JLD, Ross, Kemper, Tomlin, Rae and Rodriguez. I’m not confident at all in those last two, but not ready to make the argument for anyone else just yet.February 23, 2017 at 12:43 pm #1202019872
I’ve come to grips with Gina being a long-shot and Rossum an impossible-shot, so now I’m going to use all Gold Derby persuasion to make Kaitlin Olson (“The Mick”) happen – who not only deserves the nom, but the win!
