AFT Awards: Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series

This is the thirteenth category of the 14th Annual AFT Television Awards, my personal choices for the best in television during the 2019-2020 season. This year, I’m including a shorter list, with just nominees and a few finalists, if applicable. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them.

Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series
Last year’s nominees: Damson Idris, Kumail Nanjiani, Samuel Roukin, Jeremy Allen White, Bradley Whitford

Emmy nominees: Jason Bateman, Ron Cephas Jones, James Cromwell, Giancarlo Esposito, Andrew Scott, Martin Short

Finalists: Christopher Meloni (The Handmaid's Tale), Gil Bellows (The Handmaid's Tale), Harry Lloyd (Legion), John Ortiz (The Handmaid's Tale), Clancy Brown (The Crown), Ștefan Iancu (Killing Eve)

The nominees:

Mark Lewis Jones (The Crown)
James Cromwell (Succession)
Martin Short (The Morning Show)
Timothy Omundson (This Is Us)

The winner:

Timothy Spall (Perpetual Grace, LTD) completely nailed the notion of taking yourself far too seriously, backing up DeLoash’s no-nonsense attitude with an attitude that made his unbelievable criminal record feel all too believable.
