    In a weak and more open field it’s always easy to assume that the show with the most visibility (i.e. Modern Family) will move up the ranks but time after time we’ve seen (particularly with the writers branch) how key passion can be.

    Whilst we still have one month of eligibility and there are one or two contenders that remain to be seen, I wanted to see how many of these performances and shows that have aired so far would you actually check off for nominations on the unlimited ballot (out of all the choices in the predictions centre)?

    I thought it might help with predictions haha. I will check in next week and tally up the results.

    Here’s what I would check off:

    Comedy Series

    – The Flight Attendant
    – Pen15
    – Ted Lasso

    Comedy Actress

    – Kaley Cuoco, The Flight Attendant
    – Maya Erskine, Pen15
    – Anna Konkle, Pen15

    Comedy Actor

    – Jason Sudeikis, Ted Lasso

    Comedy S. Actress

    – Chloe Fineman, Saturday Night Live
    – Michelle Gomez, The Flight Attendant
    – Judith Light, The Politician
    – Zosia Mamet, The Flight Attendant
    – Bette Midler, The Politician
    – Cecily Strong, Saturday Night Live
    – Juno Temple, Ted Lasso
    – Hannah Waddingham, Ted Lasso

    Comedy S. Actor

    – Michiel Huisman, The Flight Attendant
    – Malcom McDowell, Truth Seekers
    – Bowen Yang, Saturday Night Live

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    For me, I feel like most of the comedy I’ve watched has either been on in the UK and not Emmys eligible, or hasn’t been from this year. So I only have a few. I still haven’t got round to Ted Lasso as I don’t have Apple TV+ and honestly, anything about football just isn’t for me.

    I’ve just finished Superstore S5 after watching an episode a night since January, so any nods to this are more for those five than the actual eligible sixth season.

    COMEDY SERIES

    Superstore, The Flight Attendant, Search Party (more the third series than the fourth)

    ACTRESS
    Kaley Cuoco, Alia Shawkat

     

    ACTOR

    Alan Tudyk but I don’t really have a horse in this race. I can’t even say Ben Feldman because he’s outshined by the supporting cast on Superstore

     

    SUPP ACTRESS

    Lauren Ash, Kaliko Kauahi – Superstore

    Cecily Strong, Ego Nwodim, Kate McKinnon – SNL

    Zosia Mamet, Michelle Gomez – The Flight Attendant (I just finished ep7, before this I didn’t realise why Gomez was doing so well in the odds. A great showcase for her)

     

    SUPP ACTOR (and yeah, I realise these performances are all fairly similar. I like what I like!)

    Bowen Yang – SNL

    John Early – Search Party

    Nico Santos – Superstore

     

    FYC:
    Emmy: Ego Nwodim ("SNL"), Nico Santos ("Superstore"), Lolly Adefope ("Shrill"), MJ Rodriguez ("Pose")
    BAFTA: Leila Farzad ("I Hate Suzie")
