2019 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

Will Win - Olivia Colman "Fleabag"

Could Win - Alex Borstein "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" or Anna Chlumsky "Veep"

Should Win - Colman, Borstein, or Chlumsky

Commentary - Alex Borstein could easily walk away with a second Emmy in this category for her incredible turn on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. But this year, the competition is stiff. Fleabag is clearly on the rise, and Olivia Colman just charmed the world with a brilliant Oscar speech. Oscar winners do well in Emmy categories, as do genuine movie stars. I think that her star power, plus Fleabag's rise will put her over Borstein this year. I could also see Anna Chlumsky pull an upset. She has never won for Veep, and this is the last time voters have to honor her. She also had a pregnancy story line this season, which often plays well with actors in the Television Academy. I still think its Colman versus Borstein, but I think there is a dark horse lurking.
