    I think Anthony Anderson could have won under the old system because he was a pretty good submitter. Wise choice for him to select “Purple Rain” as his submission because this has more laughs than his previous submissions.

    Rachel BrosnaQUEEN laughing because she fully nailed her submission and because she knows that whatever happens, she is the deserving winner.

    I’m pretty sure Julia Louis-Dreyfus is winning, but Phoebe Waller-Bridge has a shot. Bill Hader is a total lock.

    I watched Christina Applegate’s submission for Dead to Me and it is pretty good.

    I also saw Natasha Lyonne’s submission for Russian Doll and it was okay. I have only seen her submission which is the pilot for Russian doll. Was this the best that Natasha had?

    Saw Michael Douglas’ submission for The Kominsky Method. I find it interesting that there are two shows about acting in this category. Douglas does have a lot of screen time in his submission. He and Alan Arkin do have a funny back and forth early in the episode, but this submission does not feel like a winning submission.

    She could have submitted any episode and would be a SERVE to the queen in her breakthrough (justice for “Look She Made a Hat” cause nobody remembers it and its one of my favorites of the season)

    She’s pretty consistent throughout the whole season imo. Always good but never great.

    Anyone thinking Michael Douglas might win? He’s a respected veteran and won the Golden Globe. There are other places to award Hader.

    Outside of being the previous winner, Barry grew in popularity/quality in it’s second season, Hader is still incredibly win-worthy, and the competition just simply isn’t there. He’s one of the biggest locks of the night, but in the incredibly unlikely case of an upset, it would definitely be Levy.

    I don’t see Douglas winning because there seems to be very little passion for the show.

    Haven’t seen half of the Actor submissions so let me just say what a great job I think all the Actress contenders did with their submissions.

    It won’t change the outcome but goes to show what a stacked category it is. In another year (and under the old system) almost any of them would be easy winners for me.

    Bill Hader’s huge right now I don’t see him losing.
