Actor, comedy series
Should win: William H. Macy, “Shameless.” Must Macy’s damaged, erratic patriarch Frank Gallagher clean up his act or die for Macy to get the award he so richly deserves, and has been denied him four times? Is that a rhetorical question?
Will win: Donald Glover, “Atlanta.” He’s a master of performance, as well as seriocomic storytelling, bringing his searching young character to life with nuance and without cliche. Give the man a second Emmy.
Should win: Agreed. Glover. Macy’s a worthy competitor, but Bill Hader is too much of a dark horse.
Will win: Glover. Totally.
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” a comedy drama, stars Alex Borstein, left, and Rachel Brosnahan.
