Emmy Predictions 2024 - Who Will Likely Be Nominated for Supporting 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 Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

Performers most likely to be nominated:
  1. Ebon Moss-Bachrach for FX's The Bear
  2. Tyler James Williams for ABC's Abbott Elementary
  3. Oliver Platt for FX's The Bear
  4. Paul Rudd for Hulu's Only Murders in the Building
  5. Lionel Boyce for FX's The Bear
  6. Matty Matheson for FX's The Bear
  7. Chris Perfetti for ABC's Abbott Elementary
Serious threats that could break through:
  1. Paul W. Downs and Carl Clemons-Hopkins for Max's Hacks
  2. Harvey Guillén and Mark Proksch for FX's What We Do In the Shadows
  3. Bowen Yang, Kenan Thompson, Mikey Day, Andrew Dismukes, Marcello Hernández, James Austin Johnson, Michael Longfellow, Devon Walker, Michael Che and Colin Jost for NBC's Saturday Night Live
  4. Richard Lewis, JB Smoove and Jeff Garlin for HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm
  5. William Stanford Davis for ABC's Abbott Elementary

  7. Michael Cyril Creighton and Jesse Williams for Hulu's Only Murders in the Building
  8. Giancarlo Esposito, Daniel Ings, Vinnie Jones and Ray Winstone for Netflix's The Gentlemen
  9. Lane Factor for FX's Reservation Dogs
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. Walton Goggins and Mike Epps for Amazon's I'm a Virgo
  2. Nat Faxon, Ron Funches and Joel Kim Booster for AppleTV+'s Loot
  3. Walton Goggins, Adam Devine, Steve Zahn, Skyler Gisondo and Tim Baltz for HBO's The Righteous Gemstones

  8. Asher Grodman, Brandon Scott Jones, Devan Chandler Long, Richie Moriarty and Román Zaragoza for CBS' Ghosts
  9. John Cho, Ken Jeong, Zach Woods, Paul Walter Hauser and Jack Whitehall for AppleTV+'s The Afterparty
Colorful oddities that still have an outside chance:
  1. Luke Macfarlane, Andrew Lopez and Tre Hale for AppleTV+'s Platonic
  2. Thomas Haden Church for Peacock's Twisted Metal
  3. Con O'Neill for Max's Our Flag Means Death
  4. Michael Cera for Hulu's Life & Beth
