Jen Smart, who won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, is likely to miss out on this year’s Emmys as she recovers from heart surgery and returns to filming Season 3 of “Hackers,” sparking a lot of controversy. Likelihood about who can do it. Win without her.

The easiest assumption is Quinta Brunson, the creator and star of “Abbott Elementary,” which won several awards this year, including a Golden Globe. Some other contenders to consider are former champion Rachel Brosnahan, who last competed as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini are also on the farewell tour for Netflix’s “I’m Dead,” both of whom have previously been nominated in this category. Despite the higher risk of post-diagnosis of Applegate multiple sclerosis. The actress said this could be her last awards season as she finds her health is returning to normal.
The last nominee to actually return was Elle Fanning, who was in contention for Season 3 of Hulu’s historical comedy “The Great,” but there were a handful of actresses who were on the cusp last year, and their second Returning stronger seasons like Devery Jacobs (“Retained Dogs”), Selena Gomez (“Murder in the Building”) and Bridget Everett (“Someone, Somewhere”) this time around.
Ana Gasteyer (“American Auto”) and Rose McIver (“Ghosts”) are two other examples that could be added to that list, but unlike the others, they are the stars of network sitcoms. An interesting question to ponder this Emmy season is whether “Abbott Elementary” is an outlier, or whether TV Academy voters have generally warmed to primetime TV comedies this year overall.
As for the contenders who are wrapping up their first season, the most likely nominees are “Wednesday” star Jenna Ortega and “Poker Face” creator/star Natasha Lyonne, whose streaming series has managed to grab Lives up to the zeitgeist, but it would be unwise to reduce it to the Emmy prospects of “No Prison” star Kerry Washington and “Boots of War” star Maya Rudolph, two actresses who are popular at the TV Academy.

Last year’s winners: Jean Smart, “Hackers”
Still eligible: No.
Consecutive scoring: With Smart out of the way, there aren’t any major prospects for a winning streak of any kind. Even with network “hacks” going live, HBO Max has few prospects in that category this year.
Notable ineligible series: Jean Smart, “Hacks” (Unqualified Season 3); Tracee Ellis Ross, “Black-ish” (Completed)
