Can Jeffrey Tambor make it three-for-three at this year’s Emmys?
When TV’s highest honors are handed out on Sunday, Sept. 17, the Transparent star will be looking to collect his third straight Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for playing transgender parent Maura Pfefferman on Amazon’s bittersweet family comedy. But five other very funny leading men will be vying for the big prize, too.
That includes two first-time nominees from FX: Donald Glover is a strong contender for playing hustling hip-hop manager Earn on the freshman critical fave Atlanta, and Zach Galifianakis scored a nod for his work as Baskets‘ aspiring clown Chip Baskets (not to mention Chip’s twin brother, Dale). Plus, previous nominees Aziz Ansari (Master of None), Anthony Anderson (black-ish) and William H. Macy (Shameless) are back for another shot at Emmy gold, though none of them have claimed the trophy in this category… yet.
