This will be one of the hottest categories at the Emmys this year! Two former winners will go head-to-head for the first time as Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) is back to defend her Emmy crown against hot newcomer Rachel Bronsahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel). At the end of the day, no matter how many actresses are nominated in this category, this is a race between Louis Dreyfus and Brosnahan.
My early predictions for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series:
- Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep)
- Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)
- Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll)
- Tracee Ellis Ross (black-ish)
- Kristen Bell (The Good Place)
- Alison Brie (GLOW)
- Allison Janney (Mom)
- Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie)
- Regina Hall (Black Monday)
- Candice Bergen (Murphy Brown)
- Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek)
- Issa Rae (Insecure)
- Anna Konkle (Pen15)
- Maya Erskine (Pen15)
Are any of these shows on your Emmys radar? Did I forget any?
