Emmy predictions: Upset looming in Comedy Actress race? (Editors’ slugfest)

Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep“) has the best odds to win Best Comedy Actress (1/4), according to Gold Derby’s prediction center. In our video prediction slugfest, Paul Sheehan, Chris Beachum and I agree that she’s out front, but we’re leery of Melissa McCarthy (“Mike and Molly”), who could easily pull off an upset based upon the strength of the episode she submitted to Emmy judges.

Here’s the list of episode entries. Refer to it while watching our video below.

Lena Dunham, “Girls”
Episode: “Beach House”
Edie Falco, “Nurse Jackie”
