    Melissa McCarthy (won the Emmy for Mike & Molly thanks to Bridesmaids); Kate McKinnon (won for SNL, was helped out by a breakout role in Ghostbusters); Amy Schumer (won Emmys for Inside Amy Schumer after Trainwreck).

    All were helped out to varying degrees by their film roles (McKinnon had other pluses like it being an election year, playing a candidate etc.)

    So who could be next at this year’s Emmys?

    Viola Davis won an Oscar but I highly doubt she’ll win. Taraji had hidden figures but I think she’ll be dropped this year anyways. I don’t think anyone else has had a big movie recently

    Taraji & Viola will return, but neither will win. They’re the only two people I can think of at the top of my head.

    Maybe Keith Stanfield could happen for Atlanta fresh off the success of “Get Out”.

    Also Mahershala Ali could happen for Luke Cage following his win

    Hopefully Mahershala Ali for Luke Cage from his Moonlight win. Maybe La La Land could help to get John Legend a nomination for Underground.

    Like fellow forty-something actor Mahershala Ali, Michael Stuhlbarg has Oscar buzz as the father (figure) in an acclaimed gay coming-of-age film, so he could be on his way to his first Emmy nomination, for Fargo.

    Allison Williams will be helped from Get Out buzz

    Maybe Gael Garcia Bernal for Desierto

    Chris Pratt on Mom has GotG 2

    Molly Shannon has Other People

    Kathryn Hahn has Bad Moms (Not  a great movie but she gave an oscar worthy performance)

    Eva Green has Mr. Pregrines (not a good movie)

    Dan Stevens has Beauty and the Beast

    Vera Farmiga has the conjouring 2

    Ben Mendelsohn has ROgue One and upcoming Churchill movie

    Nicole Kidman has Lion

    Viola Davis has fences

    MahershALA aLI HAS mOONLIGHT

    Riz Ahmed has Rogue One

    Jude Law has King Arthour (I have a feeling that will hurt more than it will help)

    Idris Elba has Thor Ragnarok

    It’s really unfortunate that this plays a role in the Emmy voting process (Kevin James getting in for of The King of Queens–a series and performance the Academy had been happy to ignore for seven seasons–after the success of Hitch has to be one of the most egregious cases). The sooner TV gets over its inferiority complex, the better.

    Hitch came out in February 2005 while Kevin James got his first Emmy nom in 2006. This was probably a result of the panel system, which produced a weird set of nominees that year.

    Will Michael Stuhlbarg get helped by Call Me By Your Name? The film gets early Oscar buzz, but it won’t be released until November. He could get in based on his work anyway.

    If we could blame both, that would be great.

    I hated the panel system.

    Kevin Spacey is in Baby Driver. Not sure if he has a big role in it, if the film will be as big as I hope, or if two time Academy Award winner Spacey needs a movie to be seen as a big deal now. But the release date is June 30, so it would come out around the right time for him to get a bump in visibility.

    Not that it plays as big a role as a movie but he’s also hosting the Tonys in June!

    Wouldn’t it be funny if that’s what finally wins him an emmy

    Tom Hardy has Dunkirk if he somehow manages to get in, the film might push him forward with no real frontrunner in the competition.

    We have seen the same thing happen the other way around. True Detective is oubviously what pushed Mcconaughey to his win.
