Episode 75: We welcome a special guest to take a look at the 2016 Comedy Emmy race
On this week’s Water Cooler Podcast, the Cooler gang welcomes fellow AwardsDaily TV contributor Jalal Haddad as we dive into the main categories in the 2016 Comedy Emmy race. Since many of last year’s nominees aren’t eligible this year, there are several slots to fill in most categories. We take a look at who stands to benefit most from these vacancies and what wild cards could pop up this year. Think Niecy Nash, last year’s surprise nominee in the Supporting Actress category.
We also discuss a recent rule change in the way nominees are displayed in each category. Jalal is a bit of an expert in this one, so he leads the discussion as we explore the change and ask what impact it will have on the final ballot.
As always, we close with our TV Flash Forward.
