This year marks the third Emmy nomination for Cumming as campaign strategist Eli Gold on the CBS legal series. His other bids were in the guest category for 2010 and in this supporting race for 2011. In this 17th episode of the sixth season, "The partners at Florrick/Agos/Lockhart argue over the future of the firm. Meanwhile, the firm becomes a victim of a cyber hack after it represents a movie producer whose work is pirated on a peer-to-peer sharing site."

Dinklage won this category on his first try in 2011 and has received Emmy nominations for all five seasons. He plays royal family member Tyrion Lannister on the HBO fantasy epic. On this eighth episode, "Jorah and Tyrion are brought before Daenerys, who asks Tyrion why he should be allowed to live. He explains the process of King's Landing politics and is allowed a role as her advisor."

We will continue to reveal all other Emmy submissions this year for the series and acting races as they are provided to us by networks, studios, or personal reps.
