2016 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

Will Win - Allison Janney "Mom"

Could Win - Kate McKinnon "Saturday Night Live" or Anna Chlumsky "Veep"

Should Win - Niecy Nash "Getting On"

Commentary - I think that Niecy Nash had the most impact of any of the nominees, particularly her beautiful scene with the late, great Ann Morgan-Guilbert. But I think this race is between three people. Anna Chlumsky is a stand out on Veep, which continues to gain support from Emmy voters, after finally winning Best Comedy Series, but she had the best episode she could submit last year, and still didn't win. Kate McKinnon is a bona fide star, and her take on Hillary Clinton has been phenomenal. But no recurring SNL cast member has managed to win in a Supporting Comedy race. So once again, I think that this race comes down to the magnificent Allison Janney, who after seven seasons of The West Wing, and now three seasons of Mom, only seems to get better with age. The streak continues.
