You decide: Can anyone stop Jim Parsons from winning third consecutive Comedy Actor Emmy?

Reigning two-time champ Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory“) is heavily favored to win Best Comedy Actor again this year. The star of this CBS Thursday night staple is the top pick for all of our Experts, seven of our 10 Editors and the vast majority of our Users. 


Two of our Editors are predicting victory for four-time also-ran Larry David (“Curb Your Enthusiasm“) who is eligible once again with the return of long-running HBO series from hiatus.

Another foresees last year’s surprise nominee Louis C.K. winning for the second season of his FX laffer “Louie.”

There are two guaranteed openings in the category with the departure of Steve Carell (“The Office”) and the ineligibility of Matt LeBlanc (“Episodes”) due to no new episodes this season. 

While Parson’s co-star Johnny Galecki is not expected to prevail, he is predicted to contend again as is two-time champ Alec Baldwin, who headlines NBC’s “30 Rock.”

Taking the last slot is likely to be Oscar nominee Don Cheadle (“Hotel Rwanda”) for the first season of Showtime’s “House of Lies.”
