2021 Emmy Predictions

OUTSTANDING ACTRESS, COMEDY

Updated August 30, 2021

Jean Smart has been having quite a couple of great years. The veteran actress was a stand out in HBO’s Emmy-winning “Watchmen,” only to follow that up with her nominated work on “Hacks” and “Mare of Easttown.” (Whatever magic spell she has conjured with HBO, we want some.)

No one would be surprised if Smart walked away with the trophy, but at the same time another sitcom mainstay, Kaley Cuoco is hoping to prepare for landing the Emmy herself after her impressive work as the reckless alcoholic flight attendant on the aptly named, “The Flight Attendant.”


For now, we are sticking with the Smart choice.

1. Jean Smart "Hacks"

2. Kaley Cuoco "The Flight Attendant"

3. Allison Janey "Mom"

4. Tracee Ellis Ross, “black-ish”

5. Aidy Bryant "Shrill"
