Up against a strong array of contenders, Jeffrey Tambor is looking to reclaim the title for a third year in a row.

The resident funny guys of television are brought together once again to face off in this year's category for best actor in a comedy series.

The nominations list boasts a strong array of contenders, as two-time winner Jeffrey Tambor is looking to take the title for a third year in a row. Nominated for his performance in Amazon Studios' Transparent, Tambor plays Morton Pfefferman (turned Maura Pfefferman), a retired college professor who comes out to his family as a transgender woman. 

Coming off a win last year for best writing in a comedy series, Master of None creator and star Aziz Ansari is back in the hopes of scoring another Emmy winged woman. In addition, William H. Macy receives his fourth consecutive nomination for his acclaimed performance as Frank Gallagher, an alcoholic father of six, in Showtime series Shameless.

Also nominated for a third time is Black-ish's Anthony Anderson. Anderson portrays Andre Johnson, an advertising exec struggling to hold onto his cultural roots while raising his family in a predominantly white, upper-middle-class neighborhood. 

Rounding out the nominations pool are category newcomers Zack Galifianakis and Donald Glover. Although Galifianakis already has two Emmys under his belt for Funny or Die talk show Between Two Ferns with Zack Galifianakis, the Hangover star is nominated for his performance on FX black comedy Baskets. On the show, Galifianakis portrays twin brothers Chip and Dale, one of whom is an aspiring clown. Glover is another first-timer for best comedy actor, and also happened to receive five other noms this year for his newest hit comedy Atlanta
