State of the species

Last year, there was a question of how “Ted Lasso” star Jason Sudeikis would fare against Emmy winners Bill Hader (Barry) and Donald Glover (Atlanta) after he was never nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. in front of them. The question this year is how well the Apple TV+ comedy star will fare against newcomer Jeremy Allen White, who swept the winter awards season with his performance in Hulu’s summer hit, FX’s “The Bear.”

But that’s just getting into the already tested shows. “Beef” star Steven Yeun and “Shrinking” star Jason Segel are set to headline two of the biggest shows this spring. Both “Lucky Hank” star Bob Odenkirk and “Party Down” star Adam Scott, who starred in the drama last year (and again this year in the case of the former), entered a new category.

“Only Murders in the Building” may have had a bit of a sophomore slump, but the awards show hasn’t lost its momentum. The third season, starring Meryl Streep (!!!), will be released in the middle of the Emmy campaign, so there will still be a lot of TV academies on stars Steve Martin and Martin Short. Fellow Hulu show “The Great” also returned a bit earlier, but still late in the Emmy eligibility period, to keep star Nicholas Hoult in the lead and secure his second consecutive nomination in the category.

“Mo” star Mohammed Amer and “Ramy” star Ramy Youssef are in each other’s series, so it could be a “rising tide lifts all boats” situation here. With fellow “No Jailbreak” star Delroy Lindo back in his first major role since leaving “Da 5 Bloods” and “The Good Fight,” Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series has especially more exciting contenders than six can fit. nomination slots are usually offered by the Emmy Awards.
