Emmys Lead Actor Comedy

Emmys 2017: Lead Actor in a Comedy — Our 6 Dream Nominees

Jeffrey Tambor has taken home the Emmy for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series two years running, and it’s entirely possible (even likely?) the Transparent star will pick up a third-consecutive statue this September.

One thing we know for certain: Tambor will absolutely, without question occupy one of the six lead-actor slots when nominations are announced on July 13. We can also confirm right here, right now that the acting vet — spoiler alert! — once again made TVLine’s Dream Emmy roster. 

But who else scored a coveted spot on our Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series short list? Flip through the gallery to the right — or click here for direct access — to view out picks, and then weigh in with your own nominations below.

For the record, voting for the 2017 Emmy nominations is underway and will wrap up on June 26. Meanwhile, the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony, hosted by Late Show frontman Stephen Colbert, is set to air on Sunday, Sept. 17 on CBS.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    🙌🙌🙌 BILL HADER FTW 🙌🙌🙌
    He’s freakishly brilliant; his impression of Dateline journalist Keith Morrison was one of my top laughs of my entire life 😆😆😆😆

    Hope Bill, Ted, & Tommy will get nominated. I’m sure Donald will get nominated.

    Dewey can lay down some dramatic scenes too.

    I love Atlanta so much, but Hank Azaria is tremendous in Brockmire. He was made for that role and gives it a level of nuance and heart that keeps it from playing too over the top. He has to win!

    Props for giving props to Tommy Dewey! He’s the reason I enjoy Casual. Although his best scene was at the end of Season 1. He captured such desperation so vividly.

  6. Aziz Ansari for Master of None season 2

    my dream is Timothy Olyphant for Santa Clarita Diet. He was undernominated on Justified and he doesn’t get credit for how hilarious he is doing comedy.
