Emmy Nominees: Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 4/6, picking Michael C. Hall and Peter Mullan over Abraham and Britton

My inkling that “The Good Fight” wouldn’t factor into the main Emmy races was correct, and the result is a very interesting list here. Last year’s winner in this category Gerald McRaney (This Is Us) and last year’s supporting nominee Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us) are the sentimental favorites. F. Murray Abraham (Homeland) is a strong actor on an ailing show whose episode I didn’t see. Matthew Goode (The Crown) was a memorable presence in a recurring role in his show, and I’m thrilled that Jimmi Simpson (Westworld), who should have earned a supporting nomination last year, finally landed some awards attention. His show didn’t manage a single other nomination, but Cameron Britton (Mindhunter) clearly made an impression as a serial killer who really liked to talk.

Who should win? Without having seen Abraham’s episode, I’d probably pick Britton. Who will win? It could be McRaney again, but I think Britton takes it.
