Emmy Predictions 2021 - Who Will Likely Be Nominated for Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series?

From June 17-28, 2021, voting is taking place for The 73rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. As such, it's fun to look at which actors and shows have the best chances of actually being nominated this year. So, these are my predictions for who will be nominated for Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

For Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, 171 actors were submitted for consideration. That will result in seven nominees in this category when the nominations are announced on Tuesday, July 13.

Actors most likely to be nominated:
  1. Kenan Thompson for NBC's Saturday Night Live
  2. Brett Goldstein for AppleTV+'s Ted Lasso
  3. Brendan Hunt for AppleTV+'s Ted Lasso
  4. Nick Mohammed for AppleTV+'s Ted Lasso
  5. Bowen Yang for NBC's Saturday Night Live
  6. Ray Romano for HBO Max's Made for Love
  7. Paul Reiser for Netflix's The Kominsky Method
Serious threats that could break through:
  1. Jeremy Swift, Phil Dunster and Toheeb Jimoh for AppleTV+'s Ted Lasso
  2. Michiel Huisman, T.R. Knight, Griffin Matthews, Colin Woodell and Nolan Gerard Funk for HBO Max's The Flight Attendant
  3. Martin Kove for Netflix's Cobra Kai
  4. Beck Bennett, Michael Che, Pete Davidson, Mikey Day, Alex Moffat, Kyle Mooney, Chris Redd, Colin Jost and Andrew Dismukes for NBC's Saturday Night Live
  5. F. Murray Abraham, Danny Pudi and David Hornsby for AppleTV+'s Mythic Quest
  6. Carl Clemons-Hopkins, Christopher McDonald and Paul W. Downs for HBO Max's Hacks
  7. Michael Greyeyes and Dustin Milligan for Peacock's Rutherford Falls
  8. Alex Newell, Skylar Astin and John Clarence Stewart for NBC's Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist
  9. Dan Bakkedahl and Billy Magnussen for HBO Max's Made for Love
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. Bobby Moynihan and Mike Cabellon for NBC's Mr. Mayor
  2. Don Johnson and Chris Redd for NBC's Kenan
  3. Laurence Fishburne for ABC's Black-ish
  4. Haley Joel Osment for Netflix's The Kominsky Method
  5. Jay R. Ferguson and Michael Fishman for ABC's The Conners
  6. Jimmy Tatro for ABC's Home Economics
  7. Max Jenkins for Netflix's Special
  8. Toby Huss, Adrian Blake Enscoe and Finn Jones for AppleTV+'s Dickinson
  9. Cole Escola, John Early and John Reynolds for HBO Max's Search Party
  10. Dwayne Johnson, Randall Park, Bradley Constant, Adrian Groulx and Uli Latukefu for NBC's Young Rock
Colorful oddities who still have an outside chance:
  1. Justice Smith for HBO Max's Generation
  2. Daniel Breaker and Jonathan Hadary for Peacock's Girls5Eva
  3. James Martinez, Nick Robinson, George Sear and Anthony Turpel for Hulu's Love, Victor
  4. Leslie Jordan for FOX's Call Me Kat
  5. Patton Oswalt for Peacock's A.P. Bio
  6. William Fichtner for CBS' Mom
  7. John Cameron Mitchell and Cameron Britton for Hulu's Shrill
