Emmy Predictions: Can Donald Glover Defend Comedy Series Actor Crown Against Veterans In Their Return?

Emmy Predictions: Can Donald Glover Defend Comedy Series Actor Crown Against Veterans In Their Return?
Deadline Awards Columnist and Chief Film Critic Pete Hammond gives his take on the top acting contenders for the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards. Here, he breaks down the categories of Outstanding Lead and Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

Three newcomers to this category add some fresh blood to make it just a bit more interesting. One is a multiple former Emmy winner—decades ago, in the same category—and a beloved TV star; another returns after an extended hiatus from production and the Emmy Race, while the third is a major SNL star who struck out on his own and created, stars in, writes and directs the darkest entry by far. On the other end of the equation are returnees Anthony Anderson of Black-ish, 14-time nominee William H. Macy, and last year’s winner Donald Glover. The latter probably holds the title of frontrunner,

Henry Winkler (‘Barry’) admits ‘it would be thrilling’ to finally win his first Primetime Emmy at age 72 [Exclusive Video Interview)
“You know what? It would be thrilling,” admits Henry Winkler in our exclusive interview about what it would mean to finally win his first Primetime Emmy. The 72-year-old is nominated as Best Comedy Supporting Actor for HBO’s “Barry” in the stand-out role of Gene Cousineau, an acting coach to a hit man (Bill Hader) who desires to be a thespian. Winkler is now a six-time Emmy nominee after previously being recognized for “Happy Days” (1976-78), “Who Are the DeBolts?” (1979) and “The Practice” (2000), so might this finally be his year? “I’m old enough to know you win you don’t win. My life is blessed.” Watch our exclusive video interview above.

Anonymous Emmy Ballot: Actress Finds ‘Atlanta’ Unsettling, Says Stephen Colbert Has ‘Elevated the Game’

Anonymous Emmy Ballot: Actress Finds ‘Atlanta’ Unsettling, Says Stephen Colbert Has ‘Elevated the Game’
This year’s Primetime Emmy campaign moves into its next stage on Monday, as voting begins to select this year’s winners. This year’s race may be a bit of a nailbiter, as both the outstanding drama and comedy Emmy awards are in play. In the drama race, two-time winner “Game of Thrones” is back, after sitting last year out — which means it will face 2017’s winner, “The Handmaid’s Tale.” And in comedy, incumbent winner “Veep” is out of the race this year, which means frontrunners “Atlanta” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” will duke it out for the top prize.

IndieWire reached out to creatives across the industry this year to share their own Emmy ballots, anonymously, and explain why they made their choices. Performers, writers, producers, publicists, executives, and craftspeople from across the industry offered up their answers, and IndieWire will post some of those ballots in the coming days.

Can Cameron Britton (‘Mindhunter’) make Emmy history? It’s rare to win for guest acting on your show’s only nomination

Can Cameron Britton (‘Mindhunter’) make Emmy history? It’s rare to win for guest acting on your show’s only nomination
According to hundreds of Gold Derby users currently predicting the Creative Arts Emmys, Cameron Britton (“Mindhunter”) is the front-runner to win Best Drama Guest Actor for his role as real-life serial killer Ed Kemper. But on paper that might seem unlikely. “Mindhunter” got no other nominations, so can he really take down actors from Best Drama Series contenders like “This is Us” (Gerald McRaney and Ron Cephas Jones), “The Crown” (Matthew Goode) and “Westworld” (Jimmi Simpson)? To win under those circumstances is somewhat rare, but not unprecedented.

The Emmys introduced guest-acting categories in 1986, and since then eight people have won on their shows’ only nomination. It happened three times in Best Comedy Guest Actor: Cleavon Little, Tim Conway and Peter Scolari.

It happened three times in Best Drama Guest Actress: Viveca Landfors, Amanda Plummer and Cloris Leachman.

Emmy episode analysis: Cameron Britton (‘Mindhunter’) sends chills down our spine as talkative serial killer

Emmy episode analysis: Cameron Britton (‘Mindhunter’) sends chills down our spine as talkative serial killer
One of the year’s breakout stars at the Emmys was Cameron Britton, who made a memorable appearance as a talkative serial killer in Netflix’s “Mindhunter.” Britton reaped his career-first Emmy nomination as Best Drama Guest Actor for the series.

In “Episode 2,” Britton makes his first appearance as the imposing, hyper-intelligent serial killer Edmund Kemper, who agrees to sit down for a wide-ranging interview with two FBI agents (Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany) hoping to pick his brain. Though the agents come away with some useful research for their study on the psychology of real-life monsters, their visit to Kemper nevertheless angers the suits at the Bureau.
