2018 Emmy predictions: Best Comedy Supporting Actor is the most wide-open race with Experts split Eight ways
The Emmys usually love reruns, so it often pays to bet on repeat winners. But the problem with this year’s race for Best Comedy Supporting Actor is that there are three actors who have won this category before for their respective roles: Sean Hayes (“Will and Grace”), Louie Anderson (“Baskets”) and defending champ Alec Baldwin (“Saturday Night Live”). And those aren’t the only contenders who are keeping Emmy pundits up at night. We’ve polled 19 Expert journalists from top media outlets, and they’re split eight ways in picking the winner.

Hayes is the Experts’ top choice for resuming his role as Jack McFarland in the “Will and Grace” revival. Nine of them are predicting him to win: Debra Birnbaum (Variety), Debbie Day (Rotten Tomatoes), Eric Deggans (NPR), Lynn Elber (Associated Press), Lynette Rice (Entertainment Weekly), Robert Rorke (New York Post), Matt Roush (TV Guide Magazine), Ken Tucker
