    For Drama Actor I think it’s going to be Slattery vs. Cumming. Both have similar roles on their shows and both of their possible submissions deviate from their usual pattern. Still I give Slattery the edge because of Mad Men. For Actress this is all Margo Martindale’s. No question.

    I do think that Margo Martindale’s episode was a really good one, but I just finished the second season of Justified and can’t help but feel the season finale would have been a bit of a better episode. Does anyone have any thoughts on that?

    Loved Baranski in “Silver Bullet,” but I wished she had gone with “Nine Hours.”

    G’Day, it will be intersting to see ieal with Michelle Forbes can submit both of the season’s first 2 episodes since they aired on the same night. She has very baity material in both. One she has a missing daughter and 2 has her having to deal with the death of her daughter.

    I think Kelly Macdonald messed up with “Family Limitations” I can’t remember episode names, but I’m pretty sure she’s had better on the show. Then again I haven’t watched the show in a while, but I did watch her tape and there wasn’t much except for her telling off Lucy. Dinklage did well, as did Baranski (still she doesn’t have a shot).

    I could not agree with you more on this. Baranski was great in both but the passion she brought to her character in “Nine Hours” almost screams to be noticed by Emmy voters and I can’t believe that she didn’t submit that one. But “Silver Bullet” could still be a formidable contender.

    I’ve only seen the first 7 episodes of Boardwalk but I think MacDonald did in fact submit poorly (and Michael Pitt was robbed).  She had a much more prominent, showier role in Anastasia.

     

    I also think Dinklage could have submitted better with “A Golden Crown”.

     

    My guesses are Martindale/Slattery.

    Michelle Forbes had better, but I think it’s okay, I just don’t see her winning. Archie did well, I don’t know if it’s enough to repeat but I think it’s a two horse race. Martindale vs. Panjabi.

    Best Supporting Actor

     

    Will Win: Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones

    Spoiler: John Slattery, Mad Men

    Should Win: Walton Goggins, Justified

     

    This is a very wide open category.  Anyone can win.  There is a chance Cumming and Charles could benefit from appearing in two tapes because they are both on the same show (I don’t watch The Good Wife so I don’t know the screentime for them in their two episodes).  Emmy voters love Andre Braugher so he could win (although his show’s cancellation definitely doesn’t help).  Goggins appears to be the critical favorite and he will have a great episode when he finally chooses one.  Slattery is the veteran of the category (4th nomination in a row) and had his best season yet.  However, Peter Dinklage has to be the breakout star of the television year.  He has a great tape and he might be the only place to give Game of Thrones a major win.

     

    Best Supporting Actor

     

    Will Win: Margo Martindale, Justified

    Spoiler: Archie Panjabi, The Good Wife

    Should Win: Margo Martindale, Justified

     

    This is another wide open category.  I don’t think Baranski can win but everyone else can.  Forbes has a lot of respect in the industry and she has a good tape but her show and character recieved a lot of backlash.  Kelly Macdonald is a lead on her show (and her show is very respected), is a past Emmy winner, and her performance is great, but she didn’t pick the best tape.  Like the other 3 Mad Men acting nominees, Christina Hendricks can win but she has the least chance of the 4.  Panjabi is the defending champ so she definitely has to be considered.  However, it would be a shame if anyone other than Margo Martindale won this category.

    Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series Analysis

    Considering the way this category could’ve turned out (“Boardwalk Empire” vs. “The Good Wife”), this is a strong crop of nominees. Andre Braugher is one of the returning nominees from last year. His episode, like the rest of the departed “Men of a Certain Age”, will resonate with some of the older voters on the panel because of the great dynamic of the actors and the topical storyline of colonoscopy. But in this competition, it is pretty weak and doesn’t have the weight of his tape last year. Josh Charles is an actor who can be amazing and compelling to watch with the right kind of writing. Until the season two finale of “The Good Wife”, I didn’t think he got worthy material to showcase the actor he can be. He’s really impressive in his tape. The court room scenes are his strongest because he has a commanding presence. I am hoping for more material like this in season three. Walton Goggins surprise nod for “Justified” is one that I was truly stunned about. Especially considering he was never nominated or won for his work on “The Shield”. But his work as Boyd Crowder is a complete departure from Shane Vendrell, that it seems like this nomination came at the right time. The work in his submission is pretty low-key until that final scene! Since he is now on the radar, I am hoping for more accolades for this role. Peter Dinklage could be the spoiler here for his scene stealing work on “Game of Thrones”. He submitted the episode that pretty much got the series its Emmy love. The monologue about Tyrion’s history with women is powerful and heartbreaking. For those scenes alone, the show’s chances of getting a major win increased. I think the race will come down to John Slattery, the veteran here, and Alan Cumming. John Slattery’s work on “Mad Men” has been consistently strong for the last four seasons. Given that the show has a great chance of finally taking home some acting wins, he could be a part of that. However, I don’t think his episode was that strong. His storyline is the weak-link and though he has a great scene towards the end, I don’t think it will be enough. Alan Cumming is the strongest male actor on “The Good Wife” and his episode is the strongest example of great supporting acting in this field. He also has some great scenes in Josh Charles’ episode. Alan is to Archie Panjabi as Josh is to Christine Baranski. Given the acclaim and buzz the show garnered in its sophomore season, I think Alan will benefit from that since he has the flashier role of the two and, in my opinion, the best showcase nominated. The predictor in me says go with the safe bet that is John Slattery, but I am going to go with my gut and predict Alan Cumming.
