2017 Emmy Predictions: Best Guest Comedy Actress in a Comedy Series

Will Win - Melissa McCarthy "Saturday Night Live"

Could Win - Carrie Fisher "Catastrophe" or Angela Bassett "Master of None"

Should Win - Carrie Fisher "Catastrophe"

Commentary - I was hoping that Emmy voters would be sentimental this year. We lost a princess, a general, an icon. But as we have learned time and time again, that voters in these categories tend to ignore sentiment. I still think, deep down, that Carrie Fisher's name is going to be called. But history, episodes, and buzz suggest something different. Melissa McCarthy joined the five-time club this year, with another great episode. While she has never won for her SNL appearances before, this time is different. This time she has a killer episode, and has the Sean Spicer impression over the course of the season that went completely viral. That combination I think is enough to earn McCarthy a second Emmy, and a long overdue recognition for her now iconic SNL appearances.
