2015 Emmy Predictions – Best Supporting Actress (Comedy)

snl-kate-mckinnon-castcreditFINAL EMMY PREDICTIONS: With “Orange is the New Black” going to the Drama side, there aren’t a whole lot of inspired choices from the supporting ladies of comedy.  Allison Janney, who won the Critics Choice award is a no-brainer for a nomination for “Mom” but anyone else beyond that is operating on “very likely.”  With two wins, Julie Bowen will likely muscle her way in and Judith Light‘s role on “Transparent” has lots of fans.  Mayim Bialik is a default choice and Anna Chlumsky does great work on “Veep.”  I wonder if there’s room for any more SNL girls outside of Kate McKinnon?  Vanessa Bayer had a great year and Aidy Bryant continues to be a formidable member of the ensemble.

  1. Allison Janney – “Mom”
  2. Julie Bowen – “Modern Family”
  3. Kate McKinnon – “Saturday Night Live”
  4. Judith Light – “Transparent”
