Best Comedy Series: Critically and qualitatively it was not a great year for "Seinfeld." However, the fact that it's won only once for Best Comedy is shocking. It should win just because it was the most groundbreaking sitcom of the '90s.
Best Actress in a Comedy: It's great that Jenna Elfman and Calista Flockhart are in there because they're both newcomers and both terrific. It will be interesting to see if voters stick with the old school. Helen Hunt just won an Oscar, and they're going to lean toward her for credibility.
Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy: Phil Hartman probably got nominated because he died, which is a shame: He deserved it while he was alive. He was very subtle, a comedian's comedian, but he was probably too quiet for the nominating committee. I have a funny feeling they'll give it to him this year, although it would be nice if Jason Alexander got it. With six nominations, he's never won, which is mind-boggling.
