    Giancarlo (‘Gus’) Esposito will be appearing live on “Derby Talk” on Monday 12-1 pm
    Pacific/ 3-4 pm Eastern — right on the Gold Derby home page. He’ll be interviewed by Gold Derby editors me and Rob Licuria, who consider Esposito to be one of the frontrunners in the Emmy
    race for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Viewers can join in the
    conversation by Tweeting comments and questions during the webcast “@goldderby” – “Derby Talk” is produced in
    partnership with Ustream, sponsored by Sony Pictures Television.

    If nominated, submit in “Hermanos” and you are a guaranteed
    lock in your category. It is an episode that basically delves into Gus’ backstory and centers around the characrer for about 90% of the episode. You have
    everything in that episode: Emotional range, impact, anxiety, and, most of all, empathy. That’s crucial. The Academy is suckers for that and they love giving away Emmys to supporting
    actors/actresses, who are only on their show for at least one or two seasons with
    a big, dark secret and/or past, who usually die in a brutal and/or shocking way;
    if it’s either murder or suicide. Others winners in the past with the same
    character traits, personality, and fate as Gus Fring have been: Joe Pantoliano
    (“The Sopranos”), Drea de Matteo (“The Sopranos”), Željko
    Ivanek (“Damages”), John Lithgow (“Dexter”), and, most
    recently, Margo Martindale (“Justified”). Gus Fring is basically the
    male version of Mags Bennett and almost as evil and creepy as Arthur Mitchell.
    Plus, there are no re-runs in this category, and Aaron Paul and Peter Dinklage
    already got their Emmys. Plus, whatever Aaron Paul submits, that episode will
    count for you as well. If Paul submits in “End Times”, which he should, then you are
    an even a bigger lock in your category since Gus has some excellent scenes in that episode as well. I know I’m right.

    Hundreds of others have already recommended he submit that episode, so that is already a done deal. His biggest chore in a very crowded field is getting the actual nomination.

    ^I’m keeping my fingers crossed that season four is the “breakout season” for the drama at the Emmys. How odd to say that when it’s three-peated in Lead Actor and also taken Supporting Actor and two wins in Single-Camera Editing…All deserved. What I’m referring to is nominations for other players besides Cranston and Paul.

    There’s no reason why Giancarlo Esposito and Anna Gunn should be snubbed of nominations in Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress. Neither have ever been nominated but after the season they’ve had, I’m hopeful they’ll finally get in. Also, Breaking Bad has only one (one!) Directing nomination (2008, Vince Gilligan, “Pilot”; lost to Greg Yaitanes for House, episode “House’s Head”) and ZERO Writing nominations. I find all four deserving of the wins, but to think of the series not landing these four nominations already has me fuming.

    Back on topic. I’m fine with a category giving a repeat win if it’s deserved, but I really can’t rank anyone #1 except Esposito. It’ll be one of the most disappointing snubs of the day if he doesn’t even land the nomination. I think it’ll happen. This is the #1 category of the Primetime Emmys that usaually always seems to get it right in both nominations and wins (Peter Dinklage! Aaron Paul! Zeljko Ivanek!). Here’s hoping the trend continues.

    Excellent. Two of the best chats so far this season.
