2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

Will Win - Tituss Burgess "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"

Could Win - Tony Hale "Veep" or Ty Burrell "Modern Family" or Keegan Michael Key

Should Win - Tituss Burgess "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"

Commentary - So this one is tough. Andre Braugher is a legend, and I love him in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and would love to see him win for this under-appreciated show. But I don't see it. Keegan Michael Key is the lead of his show, and it feels like those SNL guest submissions that win Emmys. I don't think he can pull it off, but don't be surprised if he does. Adam Driver is a movie star now, with the upcoming Star Wars film. So even though his Girls role was less this season, don't discount the new popular voting system. But I think this is a three-way race. Ty Burrell has won this several times, and cannot be discounted, but with two big contenders ahead of him, and the fact that Modern Family has dropped so much in terms of overall buzz, I think he is a solid third place. A solid dark horse. Tony Hale has won before with less of an episode than he has this year. He is fantastic in his episode this year, and Veep is the leader for Best Comedy Series. But I think there is someone ahead of him. Tituss Burgess had a breakout year for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a show they clearly like. If episodes still matter, he has the best one of the bunch, and he has, I think the popularity to pull off a win.Hale could eclipse him, but it is Burgess' to lose.
