    It could’ve been Comedy Actress – Lead, if they would stop being lazy.

    Constance Wu – FOTB

    Traci Ellis Ross – Blackish

    Gina Rodriguez – Jane the Virgin

    Julia Louis Dreyfus – Veep

    Ellie Kemper – forgot the name of this show

    Melissa McCarthy – Mike and Molly

    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

    That does seem like a believable lineup this year, actually.

    I hope Martha Plimpton returns to the Lead Actress Comedy category.

    I think that the comedy acting categories could have the most diversity. Followed by the Limited Series/Movie acting categories

    Comedy Actress: Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat), Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish), Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin, the show is on the CW and may not be taken seriously by some Emmy voters) and Rashida Jones (Angie Tribeca, like the CW, TBS is not really a network taken seriously with some Emmy voters) are all possibilities and could make history.

    Comedy Actor: Anthony Anderson (Black-ish) and Don Cheadle fro House of Lies final season are possibilities of return, in addition to Aziz Ansari (Master of None) and Gael Garcia Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle) are possibilities to get nominated as well and they could all make history. I know this might be outside the box and the Emmys like to throw some unexpected turns, however, I’m thinking Dwayne Jonhson from Ballers could get a nomination.

    Comedy Supporting Actor: Tituss Burgess (UKS) and Andre Braugher (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) are possibilities of being nominated again, Key could return as well and maybe nominated in the same category as his partner Peele.

    Limited Series/Movie

    From American Crime Story, Courtney B. Vance and Sterling K. Brown are strong possibilities of getting nominated, in addition to Idris Elba for Luther, who is a past nominee and I think the #OscarsSoWhite situation could help him, in addition to Oscar Isaac being a possible nominee for Show Me a Hero with a rising profile.

    For the women, Kerry Washington is a strong possibility for Confirmation and Audra McDonald could surprise for Lady Day, in addition to some of the actresses in the Roots remake, Anika Noni Rose is a possibility as her performance was widely regarded and Regina King could get nominated again for American Crime or maybe she can surprise in the Supporting Actress Drama for The Leftovers.

    Also, I would look out for Saints and Strangers as it has Native American actors as the center point of the story.

    Long post, these are just my predictions, I hope that they come true on July 14.
