Emmy Predictions: Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 13th. Chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: Mahershala Ali (House of Cards), Hank Azaria (Ray Donovan), Reg E. Cathey (House of Cards), Michael J. Fox (The Good Wife), Paul Sparks (House of Cards), Max von Sydow (Game of Thrones)

The competition: Sparks has been upgraded to supporting, and the only possible returning nominee here is last year’s winner Hank Azaria (Ray Donovan), who is likely to be back again. Gerald McRaney (This Is Us) and Denis O’Hare (This Is Us) both seem like good sentimental bets to join the race. I’m pretty sure that the rest of the category will be made up by past nominees, like Beau Bridges (Masters of Sex), last year’s Best Supporting Actor winner Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline), and two actors nominated for the same roles on other shows, Dylan Baker (The Good Fight) and Mark Margolis (Better Call Saul). Other possibilities include Brian Tyree Henry (This Is Us), David Strathairn (Billions), BD Wong (Mr. Robot), and Lars Mikkelsen (House of Cards). I’m sure we’ll have a surprise or two here also.

The predicted nominees: Azaria, Bridges, Margolis, McRaney, Mendelsohn, O’Hare

The predicted winner: Azaria
