Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series
What a great group of ladies!!!
Aside from Laurie Metcalf, I’m very familiar with all these performances and they’re great!
Let me start by saying I don’t understand Glow. I like it but I don’t get it. Alex Bornstein was amazing on The Marvelous Mrs Maisel and Megan Mullally is a legend.
The three SNL ladies are brilliant but my pick is Kate.
Kate McKinnon had a fantastic season on SNL and she can literally play any person. She has no limitation.
2017 Winner: Kate McKinnon, SNL
My Winner: Kate McKinnon, SNL
Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series
I don’t know Louie Anderson and I don’t even know Baskets. Sorry.
But I do know the other actors and their performances!
Alec Baldwin’s Trump impersonation has become iconic and, speaking of SNL, YAY Kenan Thompson! His first nomination!
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s season 4 is mind-blowing! So good! Tituss Burgess’ performance was so funny! I loved him! Brian Tyree Henry was also unbelievable on Atlanta‘s “Barbershop”! It was so funny!
I can’t decide between Henry Winkler and Tony Shalhoub. They were so unique on their own show and they were both amazing.
I just can’t…
Also, where is Andre Braugher? Where is his nomination? He needs it. He deserves it.
on top of that… WHAT ABOUT ZACH WOODS? He killed it as Jared Dunn! I’m so pissed about this.
2017 Winner: Alec Baldwin, SNL
My Winner: Henry Winkler / Tony Shalhoub
Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series
I don’t get “Moms” and I don’t get “Grace and Frankie”. Sorry Allison Janney and Lily Tomlin. I’m just putting it out there.
I loved Pamela Adlon on Better Things. The show is great, so different and a comedy but not really. It deals with intense things.
Tracee Ellis Ross. I love her. I love her. So much. She is such an interesting person and her portrayal of Dr. Bow Johnson was so good. I need to mention the post-partum depression episode. She was magnificent.
My pick for the Emmy has to be Rachel Brosnahan. I fell in love with her and “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel”. She was incredible on the show and she deserves it.
2017 Winner: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
My Winner: Rachel Brosnahan, “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel”
Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series
I do not watch Shameless (yet) and I don’t like Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. I don’t want a Bernie Sander’s lookalike to yell at me for 30 minutes.
And now it gets tough. Anthony Anderson has been amazing as Dre Johnson but I feel like we need to concentrate on Donald, Bill and Ted.
Season 2 of Altanta was so weird, so strange and so amazing. Ted Danson as Michael on The Good Place was iconic and he gave such a terrific performance.
And Bill Hader. Wow. Barry sounds like it shouldn’t work but it super does. It’s genius.
2017 Winner: Donald Glover, Altanta
My Winner: Bill Hader / Ted Danson (Sorry Donald).
Outstanding Comedy Series
I don’t get Curb Your Enthusiasm and Glow. I will watch season 2 of Glow but I think it is not for me.
Now, how can I choose between these? Silicon Valley was hilarious and Blackish talked about so many important and socially relevent topics.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was so incredibly funny this season! I was not that into it in the past but WOW!
Atlanta killed it. It was so weird and so innovative. So NEW.
The Marvelous Mrs Maisel was a breath of fresh air in an otherwise quite dark comedy environment. It was so bright, fun and hilarious.
And now onto Barry. A show about a sniper who wants to become an actor. How can it work?, you ask. It can, it does and it’s magnificent.
2017 Winner: Veep (HBO)
My Winner: The Marvelous Mrs Maisel / Barry
