Bill Hader won Best Comedy Series Actor in each of the past two years at the Emmys for his HBO show “Barry.” But with season 3 delayed, Hader isn’t eligible to compete at the upcoming 72nd annual Emmy Awards. However, his five rival nominees in the 2019 Emmy race for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series are all back in contention: Anthony Anderson (“Black-ish”), Don Cheadle (“Black Monday “), Ted Danson (“The Good Place ), Michael Douglas (“The Kominsky Method “) and Eugene Levy (Schitt’s Creek “).
Scroll through our photo gallery of 2020 Emmy predictions for Best Comedy Series Actor. With at least two slots to fill, look for perennial also-ran Larry David to contend again for the 10th season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm”. He could be the sentimental favorite as he’s lost all six of his previous bids.
