    Comedy Actor

    Will Win/Should Win:
    Jeffrey Tambor, Transparent

    Could
    Win: William H. Macy, Shameless

    Possible Surprise: Will
    Forte, The Last Man on Earth

    Biggest Snub: Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory

    ·       Riding on a cultural wave,
    long overdue perenial favorite Jeffrey Tambor could finally find himself on the
    winner’s stage, and as a Lead Actor nonetheless. Whowouldathought?! While not
    necessarily outright funny, there moments that are light-hearted and touching.
    To those ignorant fools out there, comedy cannot and shall not be defined by
    rigid margins. His biggest competition is by fellow Emmy darling William H.
    Macy, fresh off a SAG win for his role on the drama-turned-comedy Shameless. Blue-collar dads are split
    even in this category – Carroll O’Connor is amongst the most winning performers
    for his work on All in the Family,
    while John Goodman and Tim Allen just could never catch a break with the Emmys,
    despite each winning Golden Globes for their shows in the ‘90s. What does Macy
    have that those two do not? An Oscar nomination. That’s right – if all else
    fails, resort to bragging. Just do anything to win that most coveted trophy.
    Another of my personal favorites is Will Forte. While I appreciated his work as
    MacGruber, amongst a stable of other likeable characters, in Saturday Night Live, I first really
    “noticed” him on his Emmy-nominated turn in 30
    Rock
    , which hit just the right notes. Then came the Oscar snub for his
    brilliant, low-key turn in Alexander Payne’s Nebraska. I must confess that I had no idea this show even existed
    until well into it’s run. For that, I will forever be sorry. Though the show
    lost some momentum half-way through it’s premiere season, those first few
    episodes in which he is pretty much the only character, are great work. The
    fact that he has to carry the show on his shoulder’s alone for so long is
    remarkable and well worth a trophy on his mantle. Need I say anything about Jim
    Parson’s shocking snub, throwing his temporarily out of competition for “Most
    Honored Comedy Actor?” Nope. Good 
    riddance.

    Comedy Actress

    Will Win: Julia
    Louis-Dreyfus, Veep

    Could Win: Amy Poehler,
    Parks & Recreation

    Should Win: Lisa
    Kudrow, The Comeback

    Possible Surprise: Amy
    Schumer, Inside Amy Schumer

    Biggest Snub: Jane Fonda, Grace and Frankie

    ·       How can the Emmys sleep
    at night when they nominate Emmy favorite Lily Tomlin and not Oscar favorite
    Jane Fonda for their two-some work on Grace
    and Frankie
    ? Tomlin is an Emmys darling and plays the oddball character,
    but Fonda’s work in the pilot is absolutely hilarious and is the best she’s
    been in a long while. Oh well, she’ll be just fine in the end, I suppose.
    Speaking of Emmy darlings, Louis-Dreyfus is poised to take home her 6th
    Emmy, her fourth for this series and fifth in this category, for a surprisingly
    lackluster season 4 of the political comedy Veep.
    Could it be swelling momentum for anything, and I mean anything, to take down awards juggernaut Modern Family? Perhaps. Or maybe, in the words of Sally Field, they
    like her, they really like her. My personal favorite is Lisa Kudrow, back for
    the first time in nearly a decade, discounting a pair of producing nominations
    in 2012. There’s something about her performance that is so present in the
    television industry today. We are so quick to pick our favorites, only to
    discount them in what feels like moments later. Utterly brilliant is how I
    would describe her work. Utterly brilliant. This brings us to the two Amys: one
    is long overdue for a win for her career-making character, and the other is
    riding a wave of goodwill for her breakout film. Will elderly, out-of-touch
    Emmy voters get confused on whom is whom? Perhaps. If they do, I can only 
    hope they can mark off Kudrow’s name instead.

    Comedy Supporting Actor

    Will Win: Titus Burgess,
    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

    Could Win: Ty Burrell,
    Modern Family

    Should Win:
    Keegan-Michael Key, Key & Peele

    Possible Surprise: Tony
    Hale, Veep

    Biggest Snub: T.J. Miller, Silicon Valley

    ·       After being discovered
    in a small part on 30 Rock, Burgess
    is this year’s best breakout star for a role in 30 Rock creator Tina Fey’s follow-up series, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It may be telling that despite four
    acting nominations and a comedy series nomination, the show didn’t pick up
    writing and directing nods, nor a Lead Actress nod for series star Ellie
    Kemper. He is bold, brash, and unforgiving, and too irresistible to ignore.
    Former winners Burrell and Hale are seaking to return to the podium; and while Veep is coming on strong this year, Hale
    faces formidable competition from the star of slacking champion Modern Family, who is one of only two
    (the other being Julie Bowen) who remains a constant presence come Emmy night.
    While no Saturday Night Live (nor any
    other variety-sketch performer) has yet to win an Emmy outside of Guest Acting
    and the now-extinct Varierty Performer categories, Keegan-Michael Key turns in
    the best work of his career. One of my long-shot nods until I nervously
    abandoned him just weeks ago, my successful prediction would have been a proud
    moment for me. He does just as good work as Amy Schumer and any 
    SNL star
    combined. Special shout-out to my personal favorite, frat-boy jokestar T.J.
    Miller, this season’s VIP.

    Best
    Comedy Supporting Actress

    Will Win: Allison
    Janney, Mom

    Could Win: Julie Bowen,
    Modern Family

    Should Win: Niecy Nash,
    Getting On

    Possible Surprise: Anna
    Chlumsky, Veep

    Biggest Snub: Emily Bergl, Shameless

    ·       That’s right, my
    favorite nominee in the category is the candidate who is probably in dead last.
    Feels terrible. Niecy Nash has been doing solid work for more than a decade now
    in both comedy (Reno 911!, The Soul Man) and drama (Selma, ER). In Getting On, one
    of HBO’s criminally underrated series, she is able to bring the two genres together
    in a way that is so satisfying, that it is difficult not to appreciate what she
    is doing on the series, in which she plays nurse in a hospital for the aging.
    It’s dark material with a comic touch to it. I’m just sad that her co-stars,
    Alex Borstein and Laurie Metcalf, didn’t come along for the ride. Another
    favorite is two-time nominee Gaby Hoffman, who outshined her co-stars (Critics
    Choice-nominee Judith Light, included) to earn that nomination in a crowded
    field. An awkward woman confused on what to do with her life is the perfect
    role for Hoffman, who shines just as brightly in her work on HBO’s Girls. This brings us to Emmy
    juggernauts Allison Janney and Julie Bowen, whose work speaks for itself, but
    is the kind of material that leaves Emmy voters drooling. Personally, I’m ready
    for fresh blood here. Said fresh blood COULD have been Emily Bergl, who managed
    to walk the line of annoyance so finely on Shameless
    that her work is 
    actually better upon second viewing. What a
    wacky, trippy character she was this season!

    Comedy Guest Actor

    Will Win/Should Win:
    Bradley Whitford, Transparent

    Could Win: Jon Hamm,
    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

    Possible Surprise: Mel
    Brooks, The Comedians

    Biggest Snub: Dwayne Johnson, Saturday Night Live

    ·       Mel Brooks is one of
    those guys whom you can always rely on to give you a good laugh. Known
    initially as a filmmaker and stand-up comic, Brooks made a name for himself (as
    an actor) when he gave himself a dual role in a dual role as a racist governor
    and a Native American chief in the comedy classic, Blazing Saddles. Since then, this actor has earned a pair of Golden
    Globe nominations for his following two on-screen outings, Silent Movie and High Anxiety,
    as well as being the all-time champion of this category, winning 3 consecutive
    times in the late ‘90s in the role of Paul Reiser’s kooky uncle Phil in Mad About You. Aside from the occasional
    voice-over job here and there, he’s been mostly absent from the screen over the
    past decade or so, with his last big on-screen gig being an Emmy-snubbed turn
    as himself on Curb Your Enthusiasm in
    2004. In this episode, he gives us a few chuckles and we move on. What more do
    we need from our Comedy Guest Actor winner? How about some tears? If that’s
    what you’re looking for, in addition to some laughs, then look no further than
    former winner Bradley Whitford (The West
    Wing
    ) for his cross-dressing turn in Transparent.
    If he win’s, he’d join the ranks of such heavy-weights as Carroll O’Connor,
    Edie Falco and Edward Asner to win in both comedy AND drama. This is also the
    category that could win Jon Hamm his first trophy, ironically away from the big
    show. There’s some hamminess (no pun intended) to his performance, as well as
    some dramatic touches, which were missing from his Emmy-nominated turn on Tina
    Fey’s other show, 30 Rock. Just watch
    out for Emmy snubee Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (aka “The Rock Obama”) who turned
    in his best work ever 
    on this season, and was perhaps among the best
    guests of the season as well.

    Could Win: Tina Fey, Unbreakable
    Kimmy Schmidt

    Should Win: Gaby
    Hoffman, Girls

    Possible Surprise: Christine Baranski, The Big Bang Theory

    Biggest Snubs: Chloe Webb, Bojana Novakovic and Sasha
    Alexander, Shameless

    ·       Both Cusack and
    Baranski are long over-due for their work in their respective comedy shows.
    Either would make a worthy winner. My personal favorite is Gaby Hoffman in,
    well, anything she does. There’s a nice comedic consistency between her work
    here and her work in Transparent.
    She’s equally deserving for both performances. Of course, the Academy could go
    bleh… and just vote for TV Academy favorite Tina Fey in her latest TV venture.
    I am particularly sad to see that Shameless
    guest stars Chloe Webb (dramatic and uncomfortably funny), Sasha Alexander
    (sexy and alluring) and Bojana Novakovic (sweet and heart-breaking) couldn’t
    crack the top 6 candidates in this category. It’s 
    even more of a pity that Bojana wasn’t even
    submitted for nomination consideration.

I don’t want repeat wins, so I hope to see either Burgess, Driver or Key go at it. WHERE IS PEELE AND IS PARKS AND REC OVER WITH OFFERMAN GETTING NOTHING FOR BEING GREAT?!?!?!?!?!

    Tambor really deserves to win, but if JLD seems too popular to miss out. But
    they want to go for a truly comedic Kudrow apparently has an outstanding tape.
    performance, then this has to be Macy’s Falco is better than ever in the final season of
    award to lose.  Nurse Jackie, and hope she wins. Kemper was
    quite unlucky to miss out.

    Yeah, so MF may be waining in popularity, This is probably the one Comedy acting gong I
    but Burrell is still the best thing about the am most confident in predicting. Janney is
    show. Voters love him, and he was brilliant fantastic both comedically and dramatically
    this last year. Burgess was a revelation though, in Mom. Bowen could do well with voters if
    and Pinot Noir could push him to a win. she submits a funnier tape. Weedman is so
      deserving of a nod for Looking, and it’s a shame
    nothing has been rewarded for this gem of a show.

    Jon Hamm should go 2 for 2 with his acting Tina Fey is loved by the TV Academy.
    nods this year, and deservedly so. He just She is constantly working, and could
    shows how good an actor he can be, to be benefit from relatively weak competition
    Don Draper for so long, then to change it up this year. There is no single stand out
    in brilliant fashion in UKS. Bill Hader may here. Cusack has to win at some point
    benefit from Trainwreck and the SNL 40th though given all her nominations in this
    to edge him ahead. Billy Bob deserves to role. 
    be here to with a great performance in
    Big Bang Theory this year.

    Actor
    Will Win: Jeffrey Tambor, Transparent
    Could Win: Louis C.K., Louie 
    Should Win: Will Forte, The Last Man on Earth
    Biggest Snub: Thomas Middleditch, Silicon Valley (in terms of surprise, Jim Parsons)

    Now that Tambor’s main competition isn’t even nominated, it looks like this Emmy loser will finally become an Emmy winner. Louis C.K. is loved by the academy and could possibly upset, or even William H. Macy. However, Will Forte was absolutely phenomenal especially in the first few episodes of The Last Man on Earty, whether he was by himself or playing off of Kristen Schaal. And with 7 nominees they couldn’t find room for Thomas Middleditch?

    Actress
    Will Win: Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation
    Could Win: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
    Should Win: Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation
    Biggest Snub: Ellie Kemper and Gina Rodriguez

    AMY POEHLER NEEDS AN EMMY. The voters obviously want to give a goodbye hug to Parks and Rec since it got a series nomination, and hopefully this wave of adoration helps Poehler. She was better in “Leslie and Ron” than JLD was in “Election Night” in my opinion. Lisa Kudrow was also amazing but she can win next year.

    Supporting Actor
    Will Win: Tony Hale, Veep
    Could Win: Ty Burrell, Modern Family
    Should Win: Tituss Burgess, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Biggest Snub: Nick Offerman and Chris Pratt, Parks and Recreation

    Tony Hale is Veep’s best shot of winning an acting Emmy after JLD, and with his fight scene with Selina he could very well take this Emmy. His competition will be Ty Burrell who was the standout of this season of Modern Family as usual. Burgess definitely deserves the award though.

    Supporting Actress
    Will WIn: Allison Janney, Mom
    Could WIn: Anna Chlumsky, Veep
    Should WIn: Jane Krakowski, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Biggest Snub: Audrey Plaza and Retta, Parks and Recreation

    The queen of the modern day Emmys will most likely not be dethroned in this category this year. But, if anyone were to beat her, it would be Anna Chlumsky who was brilliant this season of Veep. The only person I liked more was Jane Krakowski, who was basically a more intense version of Jenna Maroney and I loved it. 

    Guest Actor
    Will Win: Jon Hamm, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Could Win: Louis C.K., Saturday Night Live
    Should WIn: Bill Hader, Saturday Night Live
    Biggest Snub: Josh Charles, Inside Amy Schumer

    If the voters want to give Jon Hamm an Emmy, he has his best chance here. As I said before, the Emmys love Louis C.K. so he could possibly upset Jon Hamm. If an SNL host were to win though, I would want it to be Bill Hader. He’s one of the funniest nwe actors and I find him hilarious in everything he’s in.
    Why did Paul Giamatti get the Inside Amy Schumer nod over Josh Charles…

    Guest Actress
    Will Win: Joan Cusack, Shameless
    Could Win: Tina Fey, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Should Win: Elizabeth Banks, Modern Family
    Biggest Snub: Laurie Metcalf, The Big Bang Theory

    This should finally be Joan’s year in a category with weaker contenders than usual. Tina is an Emmys favorite so she certainly might be able to win. I would prefer Elizabeth Banks win since she has yet to win an Emmy as well and was a highlight of this season of MF. Also, if Christine Baranski can get nominated, why can’t Laurie Metcalf? The episode they both submitted had them playing off each other the entire episode, so why should one get nominated and not the other?

    Should Win: Will Forte, The Last Man on Earth
    Biggest Snub: Adam Scott, Parks and Recreation

    Jeffrey Tambor looks like the clear and out favorite now that Jim Parsons was snubbed. William H. Macy could possibly pull it off but it doesn’t seem like the Emmys are that big on Shameless. Will Forte would by my vote but I don’t feel very passionate about this category as a whole. I know it was never happening, but in my eyes Adam Scott deserved to get in for some of his best work yet in Season 7 of Parks and Recreation.

    Comedy Actress
    Will Win: Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation
    Could Win: Lisa Kudrow, The Comeback
    Should Win: Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation
    Biggest Snub: Ellie Kemper, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

    I need Amy Poehler to have an Emmy and I need it to be for playing Leslie Knope. I also need Parks and Recreation to win an Emmy somewhere, and I feel this is the most likely unless they decide they love its sound mixing. I could see Lisa Kudrow winning (or even Julia Louis-Dreyfus again or Amy Schumer), but I feel like Poehler’s last-chance narrative will help her prevail. This is a strong category though, anything could happen. I’m a little surprised Ellie Kemper was snubbed, but as long as Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt turns in a solid second season, I think she’ll break through next year with several open spots.

    Comedy Supporting Actor
    Will Win: Tituss Burgess, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Could Win: Tony Hale, Veep
    Should Win: Tituss Burgess, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Biggest Snub: Nick Offerman, Parks and Recreation

    Tituss Burgess was the best thing about a great show. He delivered one of the most hilarious performances of the year in any category, and for that I think he will be rewarded and deservedly so. I think Tony Hale is definitely in the running, as well as Ty Burrell, but both have won before. That doesn’t necessarily mean anything. Hale looks to be Burgess’ strongest competition, as the Academy appears to be tiring of Modern Family but loves Veep. It is a travesty that Nick Offerman never got so much as a nomination for creating one of the most iconic characters of comedy television ever. In my eyes, he should have two or three trophies for giving us Ron Swanson.

    Comedy Supporting Actress
    Will Win: Anna Chlumsky, Veep
    Could Win: Allison Janney, Mom
    Should Win: Anna Chlumsky, Veep
    Biggest Snub: Eden Sher, The Middle

    I expect Veep to win an acting award, and I think this is where it will happen. Chlumsky received raves for this season of Veep and I really think this is where the Emmys should definitely award the show. Allison Janney is a threat to win again though, they love her. Eden Sher’s snub in this category proves that they have never watched so much as an episode of The Middle.

    Comedy Guest Actor
    Will Win: Jon Hamm, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Could Win: Bill Hader, Saturday Night Live
    Should Win: Jon Hamm, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Biggest Snub: Ben Schwartz, Parks and Recreation

    Jon Hamm should have an Emmy for his contributions to television, and this seems to be the easier route than Drama Lead Actor. Plus he’s deserving, he was fantastic on the show. I could see Bill Hader winning, they love SNL hosts in this category as well as past cast members, and he’s both. It was a long shot for sure, but Ben Schwartz was worthy of a nomination for the hilarious Jean-Ralphio. Give him some love, I mean technically he’s homeless.

    Comedy Guest Actress
    Will Win: Joan Cusack, Shameless
    Could Win: Tina Fey, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Should Win: Tina Fey, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Biggest Snub: Megan Mullally, Parks and Recreation

    I think this is where the Emmys finally award Shameless. Cusack has been the most consistent nominee for the show, and it seems to be her time. Tina Fey could take it though, the Emmys love her. I would not mind seeing her win it either. I find it bizarre that Megan Mullally never got nominated for Parks and Recreation. They will sometimes nominate actors they love in shows they don’t in the guest categories, and while they loved Mullally on Will and Grace it apparently wasn’t enough to translate into a nomination here.

    Comedy Actor:
    Will Win/Should Win: Jeffrey Tambor-Transparent
    Could Win: Louis C.K.-Louie
    Biggest Snub: Thomas Middleditch-Silicon Valley

    Tambor is probably the one lock of all the comedy categories if not all categories. He is a TV icon who has never won who is giving the performance of his career in a TV show that overperformed in nominations that deals with being transgender which is a huge topic now.
    The weak competition also helps him, but if it is not Tambor, it is C.K. who the TV academy loves
     

    Comedy Actress:
    Will win/Should win:Amy Poehler-Parks and Rec
    Could win:JLD-Veep
    Biggest Snub: Gina Rodriguez-Jane the Virgin

    With the overdue factor, a killer episode, and the fact that Poehler is as popular as ever, I think she could win this. Of course, she has to beat Emmy-darling JLD, who has a killer episode, but I think Poehler will win. But its a tight race

    Comedy Supporting Actor:
    Will Win:Tony Hale-Veep
    Could/Should Win:Tituss Burgess-Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Biggest Snub: Nick Offerman-Parks and Rec

    Veep is as popular as ever, and Hale has his best submission. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt breakout star Tituss Burgess could upset if he submits the Pinot Nior episode. And where the hell is Nick Offerman!?!?

    Comedy Supporting Actress:
    Will Win: Alison Janney-Mom
    Could/Should win: Anna Chlumsky-Veep
    Biggest Snub: Kaitlin Olsen-It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

    Janney could win if she submits the episode where Alvin dies, but even thought Mom is at the height of its popularity/acclaim. Janney is Mom’s only nominee. Even Octavia Spencer and Anna Faris who could have been simple name checks didn’t get in. Chlumsky could upset if she submits the episode, Convention.

    Comedy Guest Actor:
    Will Win: Jon Hamm
    Could/Should Win: Bradley Whitford
    Biggest Snub: Michael Rappaport-Louie

    Hamm has a great tape, but could win on the overdue factor alone. I would kind of find it dissapointing if he would win his first for this instead of his iconic role as Don Draper, but it wouldnt be undeserved. Whitford blew my mind away with this role, he could upset if the nominations are true and that the voters love Transparent.

    Will/Should win: Joan Cusak
    Could Win: Tina Fey
    Biggest Snub: Megan Mullaly-Parks and Rec

    Cusak is overdue for the role, she has a great tape and is one of the funnier parts of the show. Fey could get extra points for being a co-creator of Kimmy Schmidt
