Will “Veep’s” Matt Walsh take home the Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series trophy at the 68th Emmy Awards?
With the good words the 51-year-old actor received about his portrayal of Communications Director Mike McLintock in the political comedy TV series’ fifth season, will he be successful in overthrowing his co-star Tony Hale in the said category this year?
It is worth noting that Hale, who gives life to the personal assistant and bag-man of Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Vice President Selina Meyer in the HBO series, emerged as the top choice for the award in 2013 and 2015.
Therefore, some might have been thinking that it would difficult for the other “Veep” star, Matt Walsh, to defeat him in the 68th Emmy Awards’ Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series award.
Aside from Hale, he is also set to fight against Louie Anderson of “Baskets,” Andre Braugher of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” Keegan-Michael Key of “Key & Peele,” Ty Burrell of “Modern Family” and Tituss Burgess of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”.
If we are to believe the predictions shared by Forbes, he will surely emerge as the top guy in the said category.
The report dished that they have anchored their list of anticipated winners on the results of the online betting games.
It noted that the “bookies” have been the ones who betted for the new set of winners at the 68th Emmy Awards, which would reportedly include the “Veep” actor Matt Walsh for the Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series category.
Accordingly, “the punters are betting big on ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson,’ ‘Veep’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ winning in both series and acting categories.”
As noted by Entertainment Tonight, this is the first Emmy nomination of the former “Dog Bites Man” comedy show.
When asked about the thing he has noticed as they reached the show’s fifth season, which ended in June this year, the actor had this to say, “One thing I’ve noticed: As each season has gone on, we all have been allowed to swim outside of Selina’s wake.”
Do you agree with the prediction that “Veep’s” Matt Walsh will be able to snatch the Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series recognition at the 68th Emmy Awards?
