Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series

Just like yesterday, the winner of this category has already been announced. However, lucky for you, I was voted “Most Talkative” in middle AND high school which means that I never shut up, even when there is nothing to say.

So, here are the nominees:

  • Rupert Friend as Peter Quinn, Homeland
  • Robert Morse as Bertram Cooper, Mad Men
  • Michael J. Fox as Louis Canning, The Good Wife
  • Harry Hamlin as Jim Cutler, Mad Men
  • Dan Bucatinsky as James Novack, Scandal
  • Nathan Lane as Clarke HaydenThe Good Wife

I watch none of these shows but I like some of these actors, so clearly I have a very informed opinion and you should listen to it.

For example, Rupert is a British actor who dated actress Keira Knightley for five years. That must have been fun!

Looks like a bobblehead, but I shouldn't body snark.

However, he has terrible taste in shirts, as evidenced above. He can’t win.

Robert Morse is 82 and from Massachusetts, just like I am! (I mean, from MA, I’m not 82. DUH.) Normally I’d advocate for him getting the senior vote, but Mad Men is so blah. I am totally correct even if I have not watched the show since the first season.

I’m a HUGE fan of Michael J. Fox ever since I bought this poster of him in second grade.

I seriously stared at this poster every night with intense longing.

But Fox was nominated for this same role last year. Doesn’t that make him more than a guest?

Harry Hamlin will always be “Lisa Rinna’s husband” to me, so I’m afraid he’s been typecast. No Emmy!

I had never heard of Mr. Bucatinsky before, but upon googling him I saw that he’s married to Don Roos, who wrote and directed one of my favorite movies of the 1990s, The Opposite of Sex.

What HAPPENED to Ivan Sergei? He was so hot!

And then there’s Nathan Lane, who will be amazing in absolutely any role ever.

But the Birdcage will always be my favorite!

Verdict time:

Who I Want to Win: Nathan Lane

Who Will Win: This guy (he already won)
