Emmy Nominees: Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 4/6, missing Angarano and Turman

I did pretty well here, though I picked the wrong version of a “This Is Us” character in Griffin Dunne when Nicky’s younger portrayer Michael Angarno (This Is Us) got nominated instead alongside last year’s winner Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us). I’m all for the makeup nomination received by Michael McKean (Better Call Saul). I’m also happy about Bradley Whitford (The Handmaid’s Tale), and I couldn’t be more ecstatic that Kumail Nanjiani (The Twilight Zone) made the cut, apparently the only recognition for the new anthology reboot. Knowing that he was on the ballot, I should have expected that past winner Glynn Turman (How to Get Away with Murder) would be nominated, and I’ll have to check out his performance on a show I don’t usually like.

Who should win? I need to watch Turman’s work, but otherwise I’d probably vote for Nanjiani with Whitford and McKean as close runners-up.
Who will win? I think Whitford wins unless Turman does.
