    Emmys: 10 Actors and Actresses Worthy of First-Time Nominations

    10:42 AM PDT
    6/28/2013 by Lesley Goldberg , Michael O’Connell, Philiana Ng

    Stars
    from “House of Cards,” “Orphan Black,” “Elementary”
    and more top The Live Feed’s wish list for this year’s new blood.

    With just a few hours left before the first round of ballots are
    due for the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards, more than a few voting members of the
    Academy of Television Arts & Sciences are likely considering some new blood
    for this year’s nominations.


    Plenty of holes left by previously nominated actors and series that are no
    longer eligible mean this year’s Emmys could see stars from new series and
    previously unrecognized veterans sneak in. So ahead of Kate Mara and
    Aaron Paul‘s July 18 announcement, The Hollywood Reporter‘s The
    Live Feed team has picked 10 actors and actresses who’ve put themselves in good
    positions for first-time nominations.

    Guillermo Diaz, Scandal
Diaz is the Gladiator with perhaps the
    biggest heart on ABC’s breakout hit Scandal. In the span of a few
    months, Diaz’s Huck found out his new girlfriend set him up as the president’s
    would-be assassin, underwent heart-wrenching waterboarding and was locked
    inside a box in a storage unit. Suffering from PTSD, the killer with a
    conscience remembered his loving wife and new son were wiped away at the hands
    of a black-ops group. Never has being a killer been so conflicted — except
    maybe when his protégé develops a love for what pains him most.

    Sutton Foster, Bunheads
Foster is a force in the theater world,
    and on ABC Family’s under-the-radar ballet dramedy Bunheads, she’s no
    different. As former Las Vegas showgirl-turned-ballet teacher Michelle, the
    two-time Tony winner perfectly inhabits the neuroses of Amy
    Sherman-Palladino
    ‘s offbeat series — still awaiting renewal news.

    Tony Hale, Veep
Though a case could be
    made for Hale to score a nom for either Veep or Arrested Development,
    his second season playing Gary Walsh on the HBO comedy was a breakout. Nobody
    else in the ensemble plays off of Julia Louis-Dreyfus quite as well, and
    the hilarious glimpses into his personal life only beefed up the case for a
    nomination.


    Jake Johnson, New Girl
    
The Fox comedy has done a good job
    of highlighting all members of its ensemble — and after the freshman season’s
    Emmy love for Zooey Deschanel and Max Greenfield, the sophomore
    run belongs to Johnson. Tackling physical comedy, family struggles, romance and
    heartbreaking self-doubt, all while eliciting some of the series’ biggest
    laughs, Johnson is a heavyweight that deserves recognition.

    Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black
How
    many different characters can one woman play? Turns out quite a few, at least
    where this relative newcomer is concerned. On BBC America’s Orphan Black, Maslany
    plays nearly a dozen fully realized characters — including versions of clones
    playing other clones playing other clones. Confused? Maslany — the surprise
    Critics’ Choice Award winner — isn’t, noting she uses an “internal rhythm
    or a sense of drive” to differentiate each clone. Copy that!

    Jonny Lee Miller, Elementary
Playing an iconic character like
    Sherlock Holmes has its pressures, but Miller portrays the pseudo-investigator
    with a sharp eye. To prepare for the CBS drama, which moves the setting of the
    Holmes mysteries from period England to modern-day New York City, Miller — who
    has yet to receive Emmy recognition — went back to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle‘s
    original texts in developing his multilayered Sherlock. One of the most
    dramatic arcs of the freshman season: Sherlock’s discovery of the
    Moriarty/Irene Adler twist.

    Hayden Panettiere, Nashville
Connie
    Britton
    may be the star of ABC’s soapy musical drama, but Panettiere
    deserves recognition for her heartbreaking and compelling portrayal of country
    star Juliette Barnes. Compared to her Nashville counterparts, Juliette
    was one of the few characters that consistently evolved as the season went on
    — and it certainly helps that Panettiere can rock a tune.

    Monica Potter, Parenthood
Potter
    returns to the list for the second year after a season that started with the
    actress’ real-life cancer scare helping to inspire Kristina Braverman’s
    emotional journey on the NBC drama. Potter, it turns out, was on to something,
    as showrunner Jason Katims had just broken that same story for the
    character, who also had to balance a new baby, explaining cancer to her son
    with Asperger’s, and a revealing her diagnosis to a daughter settling into
    college life across the country. Never has she been more deserving of
    recognition for her supporting turn than this season — which ranked an 11 on
    the Kleenex scale.

    Kiernan Shipka, Mad Men
At this
    point in Mad Men’s storied history with the Emmys, not a single actor
    has taken home a trophy despite many, many nominations — though none of those
    nominations have ever gone to the 13-year-old dynamo behind Sally Draper. As
    her character has aged, Shipka’s performance has only gotten more nuanced and
    heartbreaking. She’s the AMC drama’s not-so-secret weapon, and she’s long
    overdue for some Emmy love.

    Corey Stoll, House of Cards
    The Netflix drama heads into Emmy season as one of the biggest question marks. Will voters recognize the unconventional vehicle for the critically acclaimed series? If they do, they’ll likely throw some love toward Stoll. A working actor without much of the cast’s name recognition, Stoll’s dark, devastating turn as Rep. Peter Russo was the biggest surprise ofHouse of Cards — and a worthy match for Kevin Spacey.

    I hate to be that person again with Scandal, but can someone explain to me the appeal of Guillermo Diaz? I really don’t get it.

    Ha yep! You beat me to it! As soon as I submitted it I realized there was a nomination he garnered in the 80s. Who are your top contenders who would be on their first ever Emmy nom?

    Tony Hale was not submitted for Arrested Development.

    If so, then Tony would have been fighting with Will Arnett for that Emmy because Buster is amazing in his episoded in Season 4 of Arrested Development
    .

    I will reach back 2 years and mention Sherri Shepherd for 30 Rock.  She should have been nominated for guest starring on 30 Rock in Queen Of Jordan.  Sorry, but that performance could have taken taken down Gwyneth Paltrow from Glee.

    And the sad thing is that Margaret Cho was nominated for a 1 minute performance and Sherri was not nominated for her tour de force comedic performance in 30  Rock.

    For me the list has two issues. One, no Jennifer Carpenter and two, fucking Kiernan Shipka again. And the “fucking” is not towards her, but to the tiresome Emmy comments for this girl. I love her as Sally Draper, but common, it’s not that impressive either, specially against better costars.

    I agree with everybody else except I don’t watch Bunheads and I don’t get Guillermo Diaz either, or maybe not just yet.

    This is more press for Monica Potter and Parenthood, so it’s all good. 

    And finally, to whoever mentioned Sherri Shepherd, this along with Jennifer Carpenter are some of Emmys biggest mistakes.

    People just like laundry lists. Most of those lists are never considering the fact there’s already deserving people nominated, and that there are only six slots. Most are just “I’ll list everyone I like”.
