For the first time this decade, we’re guaranteed a new winner in the Best Actress in a Comedy Series category. As Julia Louis-Dreyfus continues the road back to the screen and full health, there are potential first-time winners and Emmys mainstays who could assume the category crown.
With voting just on the horizon, we thought we’d take a look at which actresses are in a position to vie for a spot on the nominations list this year. We’ve put together our lists of the dark horses, those on the bubble, and the performers who are near-guaranteed locks to be in the crowd on the night of September 17. For each actress, we’ve also listed whether or not it’s likely they’ll be eligible for next year’s ceremony as well.
