Emmy Predictions 2024 - Who Will Likely Be Nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series?

From June 13 to 24, 2024, voting is taking place for The 76th 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 which performers will be nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series.

Performers most likely to be nominated:
  1. Ryan Gosling for NBC's Saturday Night Live
  2. Jon Bernthal for FX's The Bear
  3. Bob Odenkirk for FX's The Bear
  4. John Mulaney for FX's The Bear
  5. Bradley Cooper for ABC's Abbott Elementary
  6. Will Poulter for FX's The Bear
Serious threats that could break through:
  1. Jerry Seinfeld, Vince Vaughn, Ted Danson, Steve Buscemi, Sean Hayes, Conan O'Brien, Greg Kinnear and Bruce Springsteen for HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm
  2. Timothée Chalamet, Jake Gyllenhaal, Adam Driver, Pete Davidson, Jacob Elordi, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin and Ramy Youssef for NBC's Saturday Night Live
  3. Christopher McDonald, Christopher Lloyd, Hal Linden, Tony Goldwyn and Tim Bagley for Max's Hacks
  4. Matthew Broderick, Mel Brooks and James Caverly for Hulu's Only Murders in the Building
  5. Bruce Dern for AppleTV+'s Palm Royale
  6. Keegan-Michael Key and Zack Fox for ABC's Abbott Elementary
  7. Chris Witaske for FX's The Bear
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. Zahn McClarnon, Wes Studi and Graham Greene for FX's Reservation Dogs
  2. Shea Whigham, Stephen Dorff and Sturgill Simpson for HBO's The Righteous Gemstones
  3. Adam Scott and Benjamin Bratt for AppleTV+'s Loot
  4. Max Beesley and Guz Khan for Netflix's The Gentlemen
  5. Doug Jones for FX's What We Do In the Shadows
  6. Jensen Ackles, Clancy Brown and Jason Ritter for Amazon's Gen V
  7. John Corbett for Max's And Just Like That
  8. Wallace Shawn for CBS' Young Sheldon
Colorful oddities that still have an outside chance:
  1. Will Ferrell and Andy Samberg for Netflix's John Mulaney Presents: Everybody's in L.A.
  2. Elijah Wood for Amazon's I'm a Virgo
  3. Jason Mantzoukas for Peacock's Twisted Metal
  4. Nick Offerman for ABC's The Conners
  5. Lamorne Morris for CBS' Ghosts
  6. Kunal Nayyar for NBC's Night Court
  7. Charlie Sheen and Rob Corddry for Max's Bookie
  8. James Adomian for ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!
