Commentary - If black-ish can rake up the buttload of nominations it deserves, then Anthony Anderson could challenge the front runner Jeffrey Tambor. Will Forte probably can't win if he couldn't get in for the pilot, and Aziz Ansari, while great, probably doesn't have the episode. William H. Macy, Don Cheadle, and The Big Bang Theory guys are the old stalwarts holding out for nostalgic votes. Gael Garcia Bernal hopes to ride the wave after his Globe win, and his fellow streaming stars including Tommy Dewey, Rob Delaney, Paul Rust, Greg Poehler, and Ashton Kutcher are hoping binge-watching turns into Emmy voters. Chris Geere is brilliant, Stamos, Savage, and Lowe are hoping for nostalgia as well, Samberg has been ignored for too long, Stewart is the only reason to watch Blunt Talk, Galifianakis is weird, Campbell is great, Leary is blazing, Carmichael goes for the hard issues, and Randall Park is a rock along with his co-star Constance Wu. As always, we'll have to wait and see...
