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

From June 13 to 24, 2024, voting took 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 Actress in a Comedy Series.

Performers most likely to be nominated:
  1. Jamie Lee Curtis for FX's The Bear
  2. Olivia Colman for FX's The Bear
  3. Sarah Paulson for FX's The Bear
  4. Maya Rudolph for NBC's Saturday Night Live
  5. Kate McKinnon for NBC's Saturday Night Live
  6. J. Smith-Cameron for Max's Hacks
Serious threats that could break through:
  1. Kristen Wiig, Emma Stone, Ayo Edebiri, Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney and Dua Lipa for NBC's Saturday Night Live
  2. Jane Adams, Kaitlin Olson, Helen Hunt and Christina Hendricks for Max's Hacks
  3. Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Jane Lynch, Tina Fey, Andrea Martin, Jackie Hoffman and Jayne Houdyshell for Hulu's Only Murders in the Building
  4. Gillian Jacobs for FX's The Bear
  5. Allison Janney, Sanaa Lathan, Sienna Miller, Stephanie Styles, Ellia English, Keyla Monterroso Mejia and Lori Loughlin for HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm
  6. Lily Gladstone and Kaniehtiio Horn for FX's Reservation Dogs
  7. Cree Summer and Tatyana Ali for ABC's Abbott Elementary
  8. Vanessa Bayer for FX's What We Do In the Shadows
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. Peri Gilpin for Paramount+'s Frasier
  2. Candice Bergen for Max's And Just Like That
  3. Ana Gasteyer for AppleTV+ Loot
  4. Mayim Bialik, Octavia Spencer, Melissa Peterman and Rachel Bay Jones for CBS' Young Sheldon
  5. Claudia Doumit and Colby Minifie for Amazon's Gen V
  6. Martha Millan for Netflix's The Gentlemen
  7. Iliza Shlesinger for HBO's The Righteous Gemstones
Colorful oddities that still have an outside chance:

  2. Amy Sedaris for Hulu's Life & Beth
  3. Caroline Aaron for CBS' Ghosts
  4. Minnie Driver for Max's Our Flag Means Death
  5. Morgan Fairchild for Amazon's I'm a Virgo
  6. Chloe Fineman for Peacock's Twisted Metal
  7. Janet Varney for AppleTV+'s Platonic
