UPDATED: June 2, 2022



The (current) other half of Kim Kardashian, Pete Davidson, bid farewell to “Saturday Night Live” in its 47th season, giving a heartfelt goodbye during the final Weekend Update segment of the season. But, coming up short last year, while two of his co-stars made the Emmy lineup, could he get a send-off Emmy nomination after his tenure on the Lorne Michaels stapled series? He’ll have plenty of internal competition, including another departed cast member Kyle Mooney.

The longest-tenured member in “SNL” history, Kenan Thompson, continues to be a driving force behind the NBC sketch series. Coming off a double nom last year, along with his sitcom “Kenan,” he’s back for another attempt at the Emmy statuette. Already an Emmy winner in 2018 for penning the original song “Come Back, Barack,” his acting work has yet to be recognized.

Bowen Yang, the first Chinese American on “SNL” made history last year, becoming the first featured player ever to receive an Emmy nomination. His loss may have been caused by vote-splitting with his co-star, but now, he could finally break the glass ceiling for AAPI performers in this category with another standout season.

A two-time Emmy nominee – guest actor in a drama series for “This Is Us” and for his beloved ‘Paper Boi’ Miles in the FX series “Atlanta” – Brian Tyree Henry is back again for the third and final season. It’s still unclear how the long hiatus for the comedy show will affect Emmy’s chances, but he remains heavy in the discussion for another chance with the TV Academy.

Coming off his voice work in the sequel to “Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” Ben Schwartz’s Yasper offered some of the biggest laughs of Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s whodunit series. Specifically, his singing and dancing musical episode, arguably the highlight of the entire season, features a hit original song that will also be in the conversation and showcases all his best acting moments. It’d be criminal to ignore.

This is not the complete list of submitted contenders. Additions are added (and updated) every Thursday.
