Does Tony Hale have a repeat Emmy win in the bag?
Veep‘s resident bagman is hoping for his second consecutive win (and third overall) in the race for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, but this time the Arrested Development fave will have to compete with co-star Matt Walsh, a first time nominee.
A bigger threat for Hale is Louie Anderson. The comedian has garnered widespread acclaim — and his first nod — for the role his gender-bending role as Zach Galifianakis’ mother on Baskets. Meanwhile, Keegan-Michael Key — who is also up for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance, Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series and Outstanding Variety Sketch Series — is hoping he’ll be acknowledged for the final season of Key & Peele. He is joined by fellow returning nominees Tituss Burgess (of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Andre Braugher (of Brooklyn Nine-Nine).
Last but not least is two-time champ Ty Burrell, who returns to the field with his seventh consecutive nomination.
