2021 Emmy Predictions

OUTSTANDING ACTOR, COMEDY

Updated August 30, 2021

Ted Lasso (Apple TV+)

In our discussions about the Outstanding Actor in a Comedy category, there was one name that topped everyone’s lists, Jason Sudeikis. His work as the title character is spot on likable and funny. He is the hands on favorite to take home the Emmy.

But, like in sports, overconfidence can hurt. Is it possible that voters will shift their votes to an underdog taking away what looks like a shoo-in W? We don’t think so, but as they say ‘on any given Sunday!’ Oh wait, that’s the other football.

1. Jason Sudeikis "Ted Lasso"

2. Michael Douglas, “The Kominsky Method”

3. Anthony Anderson, “black-ish”

4. William H. Macy "Shameless"

5. Kenan Thompson "Kenan"
