2017 Emmy Predictions – Best Actor (Comedy Series)

2017 EMMY PREDICTIONS: What are the chances that Jeffrey Tambor gets unseated but the slick work of Donald Glover in FX’s “Atlanta?”  We’ll see how they embrace that work.  And then there’s some dark horses that can make some noise this season like Patrick Stewart (possibly helped by “Logan”), Zach Galifianakis (many consider due for love in “Baskets”), and Thomas Middleditch (just riding the love for “Silicon Valley”).
