Emmy Nominees: Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 1/6, picking only Bridges

Here it is – my official worst category! Objectively, Sam Shepard and Robert Morse made sense as choices based on the popularity of their shows and their reputations, and Oliver Platt and David Hyde Pierce were solid bets too. Instead, we got three returning nominees - Beau Bridges (Masters of Sex), as expected, Michael J. Fox (The Good Wife), and Reg E. Cathey (House of Cards) – and two historical awards favorites, F. Murray Abraham (Homeland), and Alan Alda (The Blacklist). It's also interesting to see Pablo Schreiber (Orange is the New Black) recognized for a much zanier and less controlled guest appearance in season two when he probably should have been honored instead for season one. This is a fine list, I suppose, but it doesn't look anything like mine.

Who should win? Cathey or Fox?
Who will win? I think Bridges will take it again.
