    I am really conflicted about this whole Alec Baldwin thing. It’s just that there’s no past precedent to go on. He consistently has been doing about one sketch per episode since the election but that hardly makes him a supporting actor (compounded by the fact that SNL actors’ placements are confusing to begin with). He is more like a very extended guest star? I am not sure that this is really the right category for him.

    He would win in a landslide if he qualified in guest.

    I think that fans of Atlanta are pretty split on which supporting performance stands out so I am not really sure which (if any) is ahead. Personally, I would choose Stanfield but he probably has the less prominent role overall.

    I think you have the Veep guys too low aside from Hale.

    i agree with you about Stanfield, but because Atlanta is so popular I am predicting them both to get in.

    Just let Tituss Burgess win this time please. And also, let him choose the right episode, unlike last year.

    As for Baldwin. No precedent needed to figure this out. If the show puts him here, he’s in I think. It would be weird though, since he would be nominated mainly for playing Trump, but he would of course submit his own episode where I think he played Trump for less screentime than any other sketch in which he’s played him so far.

    He can’t be submitted as guest, And I don’t think neither him or the show are going to pass on this possible nomination/win. Either way, don’t get too dramatic over this, just keep predicting him until the show makes an announcement in a couple of months.

    Wouldn’t it be more logical for Baldwin to submit the election special instead of his episode?

    I’m thinking Hale, Baldwin, Burgess, Anderson, Walsh and Burrell, in that order. This could (at last!) be the year they drop Burrell.

    1. Louie Anderson – Baskets
    2. Alec Baldwin – SNL
    3. Titus Burgess – UKS
    4. Tony Hale -Veep
    5. Matt Walsh -Veep
    6. Ty Burrel – Modern Family

    I’m pretty confident that this is the year they drop Braugher, I’m sure he was 7th last year. I’m also incredibly vary about Burrel. I know he got in at SAG, but SAG has become one of the worst predictors for Emmys so I won’t call him safe.

    I can see both the Atlanta guys getting in, but the show would have to be incredibly strong to do that.

    Baldwin’s an unprecedented situation that needs the Emmys to properly address with an eligibility rules change. Otherwise, they’re opening up the floodgates to continued and greater eligibility issues down the line.

    I am predicting both Atlanta guys to get in. If they both do, I will predict Atlanta to win.

    On another note, if Henry and Stanfield get in, which episodes should they submit.

    For Henry, B.A.N. is the first that comes to mind since he is the centerpeice, but he actually does not have much to do besides slouching and scoffing. I think the black Justin Bieber episode would be best for him.

    And for Stanfield, tht would be tough because he never has a large role. He doesn’t do much at all really but he makes such an impression whenever he’s on. I would probobly go with “The Club” but I would also consider the episode when he is at the pawn show with Earn.

    I do not understand the resistance to Alec Baldwin in this category.  The rules say that if you are in half the episodes, you are supporting.  End of story.  Peter MacNicol already showed that the Emmys have no regard for screen time within the episodes.

    I’d be willing to bet that if you added up the screentime for Alec Baldwin this season on SNL, it would be higher than some of these other contenders, especially those from shows with just 10 episodes.

    For me, Hale, Baldwin and Burgess are the three locks. It’s hard to go against Burrell with his 7 noms in a row, and Braugher who will probably get name-checked too.

    I think that last spot goes to an HBO guy, either TJ Miller or a Veep actor (maybe they switch it up and go with someone else besides Walsh).

    I’m quite skeptical about Louie Anderson getting back. I know he won, but maybe that was just a quirk for the first season. I could see him being a Merritt Wever type, winning then disappearing.

    Even though I’m certain this award belongs to Alec Baldwin, I hope Timothy Simons replaces Matt Walsh for Veep. It was a crime not to nominate him after his work in season 5.

    This category is really confusing me. Baldwin is going to get a comfortable nomination. Burrell will continue being the Modern Family flagwaver here. I think Armisen has a good shot this year because of Portlandia ending soon. The other three spots are up for grabs. Anderson, Burgess and Hale should get in, but as with all the categories this year, I am predicting at least one surprise nomination.
