Emmys: Will a show sweep the comedy lead races for the first time in 10 years?

Emmys: Will a show sweep the comedy lead races for the first time in 10 years?

No series has won the Best Comedy Actor and Best Comedy Actress Emmys in the same year since “30 Rock” pulled it off for Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey in 2008. That’s partly due to people like Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”) and Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”) dominating without co-stars in the corresponding category. But Louis-Dreyfus is out this year, the Emmys haven’t nominated Parsons since 2014, and we have a few his-and-her contenders in the mix who could bring home double gold.

Black-ish” is the safest bet for lead nominations for Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross; it would be the fourth for the former and the third for the latter. Though Donald Glover (“Atlanta”) and Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) are the odds-on favorites, Anderson is in second place and Ross is in third (behind “Mom”’s Allison Janney) — and they both have backers for the win.
