Emmy Nominees: Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 2/6

This wasn’t quite what I was expecting, though I suppose it makes some sense. Though their shows were absent elsewhere, Andrew Scott (Black Mirror) and Jason Bateman (The Outsider) got in, along with Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian), representing his show’s only major nomination outside of Best Drama Series. Only past winner Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us) scored for his show, and an expected nominee last year, James Cromwell (Succession), made the cut this time. Rounding out the list is Martin Short (The Morning Show), a terrific choice who I actually suspected might crack the lineup.

Who should win? I haven’t seen Scott and Esposito in their shows, so more commentary after that. For now, I’d choose Cromwell or Short.
Who will win? I think Cephas Jones wins again.
