    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:
    1. JLD
    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!

    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.

    GoldDerby is trying Emmy Rossum’s nomination to happen for half a decade now and it just won’t.

    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.

    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.

    I am fairly confident Pamela Adalon will get in. In fact, I’m not so confident Lilly Tomlin will stay in.

    Also there is no way in hell SJP is getting in.

    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.

    I’m thinking Louis-Dreyfus, Ross, Rae, Kemper, Tomlin and Parker, in that order. Hoping for Fonda, though.

    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.

    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.

    Insecure was one of the best shows of 2016 with some of the best performance of 2016 by Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji.

    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.

    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!
