    Don’t have a clue about Drama Guest Actor. Von Sydow seems perceived the front-runner but I can just as easily fathom Cathey repeating.

    Drama Guest Actress, on the other hand, will serve as a real indicator as to whether tapes matter. If they do, I think Metcalf prevails here. If not, and it’s all name rec, Burstyn.

    Can they resist giving legend Sydow an Emmy for playing a tree? I couldn’t.

    Will Win: Azaria and Metcalf
    Could Win: Sydow and Burstyn, but really anyone
    Should Win: Azaria and Metcalf
    Honestly, as we saw last year these categories can be a total crapshoot, but here’s my reasoning. Azaria is an emmy favorite and Ray Donovan picked up some noms so maybe enough people are watching it. I know Sydow makes sense, but I just don’t feel it so I’m going with my gut. As for Metcalf, clearly there’s a resurgence of love for her and with voters only choosing one performance she stands a much better shot because I think those who have seen her in Horace and Pete will vote for her and it will be enough to get her the win. Also, as you can see they are who I think should win so my heart might be influencing me too.

    If Reg E. Cathey wins again this year, it will be more deserving than last year

    The HoC performances sans Burstyn were not nomination worthy, especially Sparks. I loved Molly Parker in Deadwood and thought her HoC season 2/3 performances should have been recognised in supporting over someone like Emilia Clarke, but how did she get in for this season?!

    Azaria and Metcalf really should win. I hope Sydow doesn’t (based on performance rather than status within the industry).

    Max Von Sydow (“Game of Thrones”) – “The Door” does not deserve to be anywhere near the Emmy award. Standing there and looking does not warrant an Emmy.

    WE need to approach the Emmys about a percentage of appearance in an episode to determine who should be nominated.

    If Margo wins again, then the noise needs to be extremely loud about this.

    This makes no sense. She is a guest. Jane Fonda almost got Oscar nominated this year for ONE scene in Youth.

    They already have the Ellen Burstyn rule, so it is not really such a stretch. That Margo Martindale nomination makes a mockery of the Emmys, so they need to do whatever it takes.

    Too much intervention if you ask me. The reactive nature of the Emmys (embarrassing wins = new rules! New voting system!) is just the worst.

    Margo Martindale wasn’t eligible for guest in The Good Wife, which was a mistake. They should let actors appeal if they want to compete in guest or supporting categories as they do to one hour comedy series.

    And Beatrice Straight WON an Oscar for having pretty much just one scene in Network.
