2019 Emmy nominations list: The contenders in all 27 categories handed out on September 22

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards take place on Sunday, September 22 and will air live coast-to-coast on Fox. The network has opted to follow the lead of the Oscars and go without a host. That should speed up the proceedings. Over the course of a jam-packed three hours, 27 awards will be handed out.

While that is three more awards than either the Oscars or Tonys, it represents only about a fifth of the 123 categories at the Emmys. The bulk of these — 96 in all — were bestowed at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremonies on the weekend of September 14 and 15.

Last year’s big Emmy winners were HBO’s “Game of Thrones” for Best Drama Series and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. MaiseL” for Best Comedy Series. Will both shows repeat this year? “Game of Thrones,” which signed off earlier this year, is predicted to win the top trophy on the drama side for a fourth time.

Alex Borstein has best odds at the Emmys, but Experts say Olivia Colman will be the surprise ‘Favourite’ yet again

Alex Borstein has best odds at the Emmys, but Experts say Olivia Colman will be the surprise ‘Favourite’ yet again
Alex Borstein (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) is the defending Emmy champion for Best Comedy Supporting Actress for her role as brash comedy manager Susie Myerson. Emmy voters love repeat winners in this race, Borstein plays the kind of scene-stealing role that often wins multiple comedy Emmys, and “Maisel” is the top laffer this year with 20 nominations. So she’ll definitely win again, right? Not so fast.

As of this writing Borstein is the front-runner to win with leading odds of 9/2 based on the combined predictions of thousands of Gold Derby users. But the Expert journalists we’ve surveyed from top media outlets give the slight edge to her rival Olivia Colman (“Fleabag”). That would be familiar territory for Colman, who pulled off another stunning upset earlier this year when the “Favourite” star beat Glenn Close (“The Wife”) for the Best Actress Oscar.

Official 2019 Emmy odds in all 7 comedy categories: ‘Barry’ and ‘Maisel’ will win at least 2, but top prize is Still up for grabs
You might be feeling good about your Emmy predictions for Best Drama Series, where “Game of Thrones” is the overwhelming favorite. But Best Comedy Series is another story. According to our official forecasts, the television academy will spread the wealth among this year’s laffers, but who will take the top award is still too close to call. Scroll down to see our complete predictions in all seven comedy races, listed in order of their racetrack odds.

As of this writing “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is the front-runner to win Best Comedy Series, but only by the slimmest of margins since it’s numerically tied with “Veep” and “Fleabag.” Based on the combined predictions of thousands of Gold Derby users, all three shows get leading odds of 11/2. But we are a little more confident about two other “Maisel” victories. We think Alex Borstein will repeat as Best Comedy Supporting Actress,

Emmy episode analysis: Tony Hale got thrown under the bus on ‘Veep,’ but is it enough for a third win?

Emmy episode analysis: Tony Hale got thrown under the bus on ‘Veep,’ but is it enough for a third win?
Tony Hale is on his sixth Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy nomination for playing Gary Walsh on “Veep,” the loyal bag man to Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus). Hale hopes to win his third Emmy for the role, and this year has submitted the series finale, aptly called “Veep.”

The episode largely takes place at the Democratic National Convention, where Selina is trying to garner enough delegates to become her party’s presidential nominee. The beginning of the episode sees a lot of meetings and negotiations. For most of those scenes, Gary is in the background, reacting to the developments and offering snarky remarks; he says Amy (Anna Chlumsky) reminds him “more of a childless aunt” to Selina.

In a low moment, Gary offers to help Selina, who screams at him, and he comically collapses to the floor. When Ben (Kevin Dunn) has a heart attack, Gary rushes to help.

At the end of the episode,

Emmy episode analysis: Anna Chlumsky (‘Veep’) exercises her right to choose in ‘Pledge’
Anna Chlumsky is on her sixth Best Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy nomination for playing Amy Brookheimer, the longtime loyal aide to Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), on HBO’s “Veep.” She’s been nominated for every season since the show’s sophomore run in 2013, but has yet to win. Can she finally cross the line with her episode submission, “Pledge”?

In the beginning of the episode, Amy is seen in the background as Selina addresses a rally and deals with debate prep. Several colleagues make comments about her pregnancy showing but are also unaware of the fact that she’s scheduled to have an abortion. Her sister is supposed to be her ride, but Amy’s hungover after sleeping with Dan (Reid Scott), so he ends up taking her to the clinic. As she’s about to enter the clinic, she’s confronted by several protesters pleading for her to consider her child’s life.

So not ‘Marvelous’: Rachel Brosnahan is the least likely acting champ to defend their Emmy crown, fans say

So not ‘Marvelous’: Rachel Brosnahan is the least likely acting champ to defend their Emmy crown, fans say
Sorry, Rachel Brosnahan, but we’ve got some not-so ‘Marvelous’ news: 44 percent of our readers believe you are the least likely reigning Emmy champ to defend their crown.

The ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star is one of five 2018 regular series acting winners who could go back to back, but while her road to the Best Comedy Actress Emmy last year was bump-free, she has a lot more roadblocks this year. For one, six-time champ Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”) is back, looking to go 7 for 7 for the HBO satire. Brosnahan and Louis-Dreyfus have never competed against each other at any major awards show, so there’s no data at all. Jld is the favorite to repeat in our combined odds, with Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”) in second and Brosnahan in third. Catherine O’Hara (“Schitt’s Creek”), Natasha Lyonne (“Russian Doll”) and Christina Applegate (“Dead to Me”) round out the six. Of note: Brosnahan

Emmy episode analysis: Marin Hinkle (‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’) flees to Paris to find herself in stylish fashion
One of the many additions to “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s” Emmy nomination tally was Marin Hinkle, who earned her career-first bid in the Best Comedy Supporting Actress category. The veteran performer, who rose to prominence with a recurring role on “Two and a Half Men,” won her first Screen Actors Guild Award prize earlier this year as part of the show’s ensemble. She plays Rose Weissman, a 1950s Manhattan housewife whose daughter (Rachel Brosnahan) is trying her hand at stand-up comedy, much to her chagrin.

For her Emmy submission, Hinkle has chosen the Season 2 opener “Simone.” In this installment, an unhappy Rose abandons her home and moves to Paris, causing her daughter, Midge, and husband, Abe (Tony Shalhoub), to go find her. But she’s excited by her new bohemian lifestyle, and Abe decides to stay behind with her for an extended stay.

Emmy Handicaps 2019: Actress In A Comedy Series
In a somewhat unusual situation, there are two defending champs in the Lead Actress Comedy Series category this year since six-time winner Julie Louis-Dreyfus was not eligible last year, thus enabling Rachel Brosnahan—then a first-time nominee in this category—to take the prize. Both are now competing against each other, and that is what’s grabbing the headlines among Emmy-predicting pundits. But a dark horse could come through with a win should the frontrunners cancel each other out, and that is what makes this especially intriguing.

Christina Applegate

A past four-time nominee, Applegate was last in this category in 2009 for Samantha Who?, which earned her two nominations for its short run. She is also a previous winner in the Guest Actress Comedy category for her role in Friends—a handy feat for that show. Now she’s made an instant splash in the late-breaking Netflix entry,

Among the many surprise inclusions on Emmy nominations morning was Sian Clifford, who earned her first career bid in the Best Comedy Supporting Actress category for “Fleabag.” It was one of 11 noms the Amazon series received overall, including Best Comedy Series. Clifford contends for playing Claire, the uptight sister of Fleabag (creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge) who’s struggling with grief and man problems.

It ends in disaster when she accidentally breaks the expensive trophy meant to be presented and must find a replacement.

Emmy episode analysis: Sarah Goldberg (‘Barry’) has an emotional breakdown in ‘The Audition’
Sarah Goldberg was part of a huge increase in support for “Barry” at the Emmys this year, netting her first nomination for playing Sally in Best Comedy Supporting Actress. Her nomination should come as no surprise considering the strength of her material in Season 2 of the HBO dramedy, as Sally went about the painful process of writing and performing the story of her ex-husband abusing her, only to have the abuser come back into her life. Sally’s agent witnesses her powerful performance and wants Sally to pitch to top executives. Unfortunately, things don’t quite go as planned in the episode Goldberg has chosen to submit to Emmy voters, “The Audition.”

In “The Audition,” Sally is delighted when she is offered the opportunity to meet with a big-time producer to talk about developing her story. Meanwhile, Barry (Bill Hader) is hanging around the waiting room, where an executive likes

Emmy episode analysis: Betty Gilpin has a ‘Mother’ of a submission for ‘Glow’
Betty Gilpin wrestled through a highly competitive Best Comedy Supporting Actress field to earn her second consecutive Emmy nomination for playing Debbie Eagan on “Glow.” Even more impressively, she secured another nomination despite the series dropping from 10 nominations for Season 1 to five for Season 2. Gilpin chose “Mother of All Matches” for her submission to Emmy voters, a strong episode that gives her a lot to do as an actress.

In “Mother of All Matches,” Debbie is struggling with her personal life as her ex-husband’s secretary calls her to ask the make of the bed they shared when they were married. This lights a fire under Debbie as she proceeds to get rid of most of her household items. The only problem is she forgot to pick up her son from daycare in the process. Debbie also fights Tammé (Kia Stevens) in the ring and they bond over the pains of motherhood.

At this point, you can count Kate McKinnon getting an Emmy nomination for “Saturday Night Live” among the few things you can count on in life, along with death and taxes.
