2015 Emmy Predictions – Best Supporting Actor (Comedy)

modern-familyFINAL EMMY PREDICTIONS: Last year the “Modern Family” boys didn’t dominate as they usually do as Ed O’Neill and two-time Emmy winner Eric Stonestreet sat on the sidelines.  “Veep” could dominate this year with former winner Tony Hale, Gary Cole, and Hugh Laurie lighting up the screens.  “Portlandia” did much better than anyone would have thought last year and has its vocal admirers which should help Fred Armisen.  Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie” could be a hit with vets Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen returning to compete.  Let’s wait and see.
