COM­EDY SE­RIES

Los Angeles Times - - THE ENVELOPE -

“At­lanta” “black-ish” “Mas­ter of None” “Mod­ern Fam­ily” “Sil­i­con Val­ley” “Un­break­able Kimmy Sch­midt” “Veep”

Win­ner: “Veep”

Analysis: I’d vote for the ground­break­ing “At­lanta,” which could still very well de­throne “Veep,” which has won this Emmy two years run­ning. Don­ald Glover’s se­ries shifted be­tween se­ri­ous­ness and slap­stick, bril­liantly ex­am­in­ing is­sues such as iden­tity and ap­pro­pri­a­tion. But “At­lanta” earned six nom­i­na­tions; “Veep” pulled in 17, earn­ing ev­ery one of them with its sharp po­lit­i­cal satire. Based on its con­tin­ued ex­cel­lence and the num­bers, it’s hard to go against it.

“VEEP” and Ju­lia Louis-Drey­fus, seated, are likely to win with Emmy vot­ers.
