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.

  3. Sheryl Lee Ralph for ABC's Abbott Elementary
  4. Janelle James for ABC's Abbott Elementary
  5. Liza Colón-Zayas for FX's The Bear
  6. Abby Elliott for FX's The Bear
  7. Allison Janney for AppleTV+'s Palm Royale
Serious threats that could break through:

  8. Kristen Schaal for FX's What We Do In the Shadows
  9. Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis, Sarita Choudhury and Nicole Ari Parker for Max's And Just Like That
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. Michaela Jaé Rodriguez for AppleTV+'s Loot

  3. Zooey Deschanel for AppleTV+'s Physical
