Saturday Night Live and This Is Us dominated last year’s Drama and Comedy categories, so are they still strong this year? Here are a few contenders.
Drama Guest Actor
Michael C. Hall, The Crown
Matthew Goode, The Crown
Ron Cephas Jones, This Is Us
Hall is probably the safest among these and I doubt that Netflix would campaign Goode. This Is Us had three nominations last year and they’re having a ghost just to grab another award, Jones should be safe. And since they are having a ghost, they’ll probably have McRaney by the end of the season. I think he appeared briefly at the start of the second season, but it isn’t listed on iMDB. Can someone confirm if he was in the second season?
Drama Guest Actress
Diana Rigg, Game of Thrones
Cicely Tyson, How to Get Away With Murder
Marisa Tomei, The Handmaid’s Tale
Cherry Jones, The Handmaid’s Tale
Kate Burton, This Is Us
Alison Wright, The Americans
I wouldn’t be surprised if this is how the category actually looks, but it’s way too early to predict it. Rigg is safe, Tyson probably too. If The Handmaid’s Tale is still big in its second season, then they’ll probably get both Tomei and Jones nominated. Burton was previously nominated for guest starring in Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal and she was in a big episode of This Is Us. Wright was nominated last year and I don’t think they’ll have her in supporting this year.
Comedy Guest Actor
Kumail Nanjiani, Saturday Night Live
Larry David, Saturday Night Live
Chance the Rapper, Saturday Night Live
Will Ferrell, Saturday Night Live
Alec Baldwin, Saturday Night Live
This looks terrible, but I can’t think of another contender who wasn’t on SNL. I think Nanjiani and Ferrell are getting in and Baldwin if he’s actually a guest. David got some backlash about the episode, so not really sure about him.
Comedy Guest Actress
Tiffany Haddish, Saturday Night Live
Tina Fey, Great News
Maya Rudolph, The Good Place
I think all three can be snubbed, can’t think of someone else. Maybe Kudrow for Grace and Frankie? Both Rudolph and Fey couldn’t get in for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a more popular show at the Emmys.

So sorry. I couldn’t find it. Can someone merge them?
I would love for Cicely to get in again, and actually win. 4.01 was her best performance on HTGAWM. I also think Viola should submit for her Scandal episode, she could easily make it in. And look out for Indira Varma for 7×03 of GoT
