Emmy Predictions: Best Guest Actress 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: Ellen Burstyn (House of Cards), Allison Janney (Masters of Sex), Margo Martindale (The Americans), Laurie Metcalf (Horace and Pete), Molly Parker (House of Cards), Carrie Preston (The Good Wife)

The competition: Martindale has been promoted to the supporting race, leaving just one contender from last year eligible here, albeit for playing the same role on another show: Carrie Preston (The Good Fight). Past nominees Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black) and Cicely Tyson (How to Get Away with Murder) are likely to join the race again, and another Emmy favorite, Jane Lynch (The Good Fight), good show up too. I’d expect Alexis Bledel (The Handmaid’s Tale), Gillian Anderson (American Gods), Cloris Leachman (American Gods), Kim Dickens (House of Cards), Ann Dowd (The Leftovers), June Squibb (Grey’s Anatomy), Alison Wright (The Americans), and Grace Gummer (Good Girls Revolt) to earn some votes.

The predicted nominees: Bledel, Cox, Dickens, Preston, Tyson, Wright

The predicted winner: Bledel
