2012 Emmy Predictions: Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

Will Win/Should Win - Melissa McCarthy "Saturday Night Live"
Could Win - Maya Rudolph "Saturday Night Live"
Commentary - While many don't expect Melissa McCarthy to repeat in her Comedy Actress race, I think that she will win another Emmy this year, for her outstanding turn hosting Saturday Night Live. She was electrifying, laugh out loud funny, and proved that her sensibility for physical comedy is another attribute that makes her so talented. Her Bridesmaids co-star Maya Rudolph also had a great run as an SNL host, but I think that her episode wasn't quite as strong. Plus Melissa now has the Oscar nominee label attached to her, and with a new movie coming out this winter as well already being promoted, she is everywhere. I think she wins pretty handidly.

  1. I don't think McCarthy is that funny, but apparently the Emmys love her, so...
