Emmy Talk with JWalk: Possible Lead Actor in Comedy Series Nominees

All but one actor from last years Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series category is out of contention for this years award (Donald Glover, Atlanta), but that doesn’t mean all actors are set to return.

This will be a very interesting category I’m interested in breaking for over the coming weeks because there’s likely to be a big shake up in this category. Past winners may return (Jim Parsons), new actors from first-year series may enter the category (Don Cheadle, Jim Carrey), and the possibility of a surprise nominee (Eugene Levy).

Here are my early predictions for Lead Actor in Comedy Series:

  • Anthony Anderson (black-ish)
  • Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method)
  • Bill Hader (Barry)
  • Ted Danson (The Good Place)
  • Jim Carrey (Kidding)
  • William H. Macy¬†(Shameless)
  • John Goodman (The Conners)
  • Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm)
  • Eugene Levy (Schitt’s Creek)
  • Don Cheadle (Black Monday)
  • Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory)

Are any of these comedy actors on your Emmys radar? Did I forget any?

2019 Emmy nominations will be announced Tuesday, July 16th, get ready for a lot of coverage leading to the final day as potential nominees heat up or cool off.
