grammys comedy album jimmy fallon tenacious d kathy griffin jim gaffigan margaret cho lewis black

At the Grammys on Sunday, February 10, Jimmy Fallon will complete half an EGOT according to our predictions. The Emmy-winning comic and talk show host is the frontrunner to win Best Comedy Album for "Blow Your Pants Off," getting 12/5 odds.

But not everyone agrees. Though he's the overwhelming favorite of users, our editors are split, with two backing Fallon and three favoring the Jack Black/Kyle Gass music duo Tenacious D for their collection "Rize of the Fenix." They're currently in second place with 10/3 odds.

In third place with 11/2 odds is Lewis Black for "In God We Rust." Unlike Fallon and Tenacious D, Black is a previous winner, with Grammys in 2006 for "The Carnegie Hall Performance" and 2010 for "Stark Raving Black."

Following in fourth place is Margaret Cho. "Cho Dependent," her first music album, gets 13/2 odds.

"Seaman 1st Class" is the fifth consecutive nomination in this category for Kathy Griffin. She has yet to win, and most of our predictors expect that streak to continue. She is ranked fifth with 15/2 odds.

In last place with 10/1 odds is Jim Gaffigan's eighth comedy album, "Mr. Universe."
