It is Jeremy Allen White vs. Jason Sudeikis in the comedy actors race.


On the one hand, Jason Sudeikis is on a roll. He’s won the best actor in a comedy award two consecutive years for playing the title role in “Ted Lasso.” But can one ambitious and anxious chef topple him?

Jeremy Allen White, the star of “The Bear,” will seek to snap Sudeikis’s winning streak at the Emmys along with a group of others. He was nominated on Wednesday along with Bill Hader, Sudeikis’s former castmate at “Saturday Night Live” and a previous winner in the category, for the final season of “Barry.” Martin Short also received a nomination for the second consecutive year for “Only Murders in the Building.”

With “Hacks” and Jean Smart out of the competition this year for best actress in a comedy, award prognosticators believe that Quinta Brunson could be on a glide path to winning for “Abbott Elementary.” Brunson took writing honors at the Emmys last year for her good-natured ABC workplace comedy, and would be the first Black woman to win best actress in a comedy since Isabel Sanford won in 1981 for “The Jeffersons.”

In the comedy races, it’ll be a showdown between the two-time winner “Ted Lasso” and “The Bear” and “Abbott Elementary.” It has been nine years since a network show won best comedy at the Emmys. The old network tradition of having a chokehold on the category has since given way to cable (“Veep,” “Schitt’s Creek”) and to streaming series (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Fleabag” and “Ted Lasso”).
