2019 Emmy Nomination Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

2019 Nomination Predictions
Alan Arkin "The Kominsky Method"
Tituss Burgess "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"
Tony Hale "Veep"
Tony Shalhoub "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"
Matt Walsh "Veep"
Henry Winkler "Barry"

Other Contenders - Kenan Thompson "Saturday Night Live", Timothy Simons "Veep", Stephen Root "Barry", Reid Scott "Veep", Andrew Scott "Fleabag", Dan Levy "Schitt's Creek", Sean Hayes "Will & Grace", Alec Baldwin "Saturday Night Live", Andre Braugher "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", Marc Maron "GLOW"

Commentary - So I feel pretty comfortable about five of the six slots. Alan Arkin is sure to breakthrough and could win for The Kominksy Method.  I expect Tony Shalhoub to return, and after winning at SAG, he is also a threat to dethrone Henry Winkler, who is a lock. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is not going to do well in its final season, but I would be shocked if voters left off Tituss Burgess, who is beloved among Emmy voters. Finally, with Veep coming back you can expect multiple winner Tony Hale to make the cut once again. The final slot is tricky. Kenan Thompson and Alec Baldwin were nominated last year. I think Baldwin's lack of screen time this season will hurt him, and while Thompson is great, I think that with the return of Veep, Matt Walsh, who was nominated for the last two seasons of the show, will sneak back in. I would also watch out for Walsh's co-star Simons, Andrew Scott, Andre Braugher, Marc Maron, Stephen Root, Dan Levy, and Sean Hayes.
