For the first time since 2006, every Emmy nominee in the race for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy hails from a different series. (In the interim, there’ve been at least two nominees each year from Entourage, 30 Rock or Modern Family.)
The unexpected “spread the wealth” approach to this year’s nominations means two newcomers have a shot at the statuette in 2015: Key & Peele‘s Keegan-Michael Key (whose sole prior nomination came for writing) and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s Tituss Burgess (a first-time nominee).
On the flip side, the battle for Emmy glory will also include 2013 winner Tony Hale (Veep) and two-time champ Ty Burrell (Modern Family), looking for a repeat after going to the podium in 2011 and 2014.
Rounding out the field are Girls‘ Adam Driver (nominated for the third consecutive year) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Andre Braugher (who’s got nine nods and two prior wins to his credit — for his work in Homicide: Life on the Street and Thief).
