2020 Emmy Predictions: Best Comedy Actress

The 2019 Best Comedy Series Actress winner was Phoebe Waller-Bridge for the second and final season of “Fleabag.” As such, she won’t number among the nominees for the upcoming 72nd annual Emmy Awards. Also out of contention are two of her rivals for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series — six-time champ Julia Louis Dreyfus (“Veep” signed off after seven seasons) and”Russian Doll” leading lady Natasha Lyonne. Scroll through our photo gallery of 2020 Emmy predictions for Best Comedy Series Actress to see who is likely to fill the seven slots.

Among those looking to return to the line-up are 2018 winner Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) as well as 2019 nominees Christina Applegate (“Dead to Me”) and Catherine O’Hara (“Schitt’s Creek”), and past nominees Pamela Adlon (“Better Things”), Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”) and “Grace and Frankie” stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda.
