Will and Grace might not make the Emmy cut — as in the characters. In a recent poll asking how many stars of “Will & Grace” will receive nominations for the revival, 36 percent of our readers think only two of them will hear their names announced on July 12.
All four stars, Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, won Emmys during the show’s original run, making the sitcom one of three shows, after “All in the Family” and “The Golden Girls,” whose whole regular cast won Emmys. Mullally and Hayes were nominated the most — seven times each — and the former is the only one of the cast to win twice. Based on that history, you could presume that they would be the ones to make it if only two get shortlisted. Mullally is in third place in our odds; Hayes, first.
But 29 percent of voters believe all four will get in. Messing has been nominated five times and McCormack is the least nominated of the quartet, with only four mentions. Messing is in the sixth and final spot in our predictions, while McCormack is in fifth.
Meanwhile, 21 percent think only three of them will make the cut, while five percent say none of them will. If only one gets in, 6 percent are confident it would be Mullally, with 2 percent picking just Hayes, 1 percent selecting McCormack and 0 percent picking Messing.
