I hope Nathan Lane wins.
He has been nominated four times previously for Modern Family and The Good Wife and his work on Only Murders In The Building was incredible. It switched from sympathetic to villainous in the course of an episode.

I doubt Tina Fey gets in for Only Murders, especially with the competition

I don’t understand the confidence in Fey either. She literally missed last year for Girls5eva, playing Dolly Parton, so it’s not like her namecheck abilities are that good. And she did nothing in Only Murders. If anyone gets in for the show, that person is Jane Lynch.May 21, 2022 at 6:24 am #1204958982
I don’t get the Tina Fey predictions either. Jane Lynch was funnier and more memorable, Tina did nothing out of the ordinary. And Jane Lynch is as much of an Emmy darling as Tina, or maybe even more.

Speaking of Emmy darlings, I’m surprised Tracey Ullman isn’t getting more mentions. She was so good in her 4 ep arc on Curb.May 21, 2022 at 9:12 am #1204959099This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.May 21, 2022 at 10:41 am #1204959195
Like who? Vanessa Williams is the only guest star this season besides Brunson who you could argue deserves a nod. That’s it though.

It is inaccurate to say that Tina Fey is not an Emmy darling (never mind that she’s even less of one than someone like Jane Lynch who was dropped after 2 seasons for both of her Emmy winning performances). Fey has been nominated 7 times in this category alone (only Cloris Leachman has more with 8 nominations) and has won twice in this category. She has a further 7 acting nominations and 1 win in other categories. She missed for Girls5Eva but that was a programme that very few people outside of the prognosticating/TV lover world watched. Only Murders in the Building was a massive audience hit for Hulu and received 3 SAG nominations. In a field in which there are multiple big name contenders but none in any shows that are as widely seen as Only Murders is, the same voters who gave Claire Foy, Margo Martindale and Cherry Jones Emmy wins for cameos will probably just conflate Fey’s narrative prominence and episode count with her giving a worthy performance when they’re filling out their ballots.

I completely forgot she was in Only Murders until just this second. She seems like a safe bet to get in.May 22, 2022 at 12:18 am #1204959895
Jane Krakowksi in “Schmigadoon” literally slays all Guest Actress in a Comedy contenders…. I just hope she can actually get the nom. She was insanely brilliant in that.May 22, 2022 at 8:49 am #1204960132

I can see her happening. She is quite a familiar face to these voters and personally as someone who isn’t a viewer of Curb Your Enthusiasm I have heard a lot more chatter about her work than I have with other guests since the revival first happened.
That being said I do wonder if the fact that there are so many recognisable names in this field in shows that are on the fringes of a comedy series nomination might end up having a counter-intuitive effect and the established names in bigger series (Ted Lasso, Only Murders, Hacks) etc and the variety shows (SNL, A Black Lady Sketch Show) might benefit from the divided field.

Man, how do I love Laurie Metcalf! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bad performance of hers. Really hoping she gets the nomination. Come on Hacks, sweep and give it to Metcalf.May 23, 2022 at 4:39 pm #1204961637This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.May 23, 2022 at 7:44 pm #1204961736
A black lady sketch show had a horrible season barely any sketch worked for it to get nominated. Plus this year, there are Lenny of people to nominate. Last year, the category was basically barren for choices,Not now
