Mark Margolis appeared in five of 10 episodes of “Better Call Saul” this season (including Monday’s Season 3 finale), which makes him ineligible for guest star status. Tom is alerting the TV academy now and is asking whether Margolis will be allowed to switch over to the supporting race or if he’ll just be removed from Emmy contention completely. Stay tuned.
Margolis earned a guest star nomination for this same role of Tio Salamanca for “Breaking Bad” in 2012. He appeared in these five episodes of “Better Call Saul” Season 3:
#306 “Off Brand”
#310 “Lantern”June 19, 2017 at 5:00 pm #1202126501
Saw this coming after he was in promos at the end of last weeks episode. How do they mess up submissions like that?June 19, 2017 at 5:17 pm #1202126512
Given that Margolis submitted supporting last year when he appeared as a guest in five out of ten, I assumed that his guest submission this year meant that he would only appear in four (and eventually that the finale trailer was wrong), so this is extra strange.June 19, 2017 at 5:24 pm #1202126518
In addition to the trailer, there are two photos on the AMC press site featuring Margolis in tonight’s finale — one standing/pointing at someone and one in the driver’s seat of a car. I guess we’ll see whether those scenes are used in the episode in a few hours! If he filmed the scenes, but they end up on the cutting room floor, he’ll still be eligible for guest.June 19, 2017 at 7:35 pm #1202126653
Just saw Mark Margolis on Better Call Saul so he is ineligible.June 19, 2017 at 7:52 pm #1202126661
Thanks for confirming Hunterbergfeld. We are waiting to hear back from AMC and the TV academy.June 20, 2017 at 3:51 pm #1202127684
We should see “v4” of the public-facing Performers ballot uploaded soon on the Emmy website. I have “v1” saved on my computer, so I will try to go through tonight and see what else has changed, aside from Gerald McRaney.June 20, 2017 at 4:02 pm #1202127688
Good job, Marcus: http://www.goldderby.com/article/2017/mark-margolis-better-call-saul-emmys-2017-amc-news We should see “v4” of the public-facing Performers ballot uploaded soon on the Emmy website.

please check if J Cameron Smith is still on their twice (once Under C and once under S) . I’m too lazy.June 22, 2017 at 1:02 am #1202129565
What is the Gerald McRaney ballot issue you’re referring to, Riley?June 22, 2017 at 8:40 am #1202129796
I wonder if there will be another case like this. My gut is telling me that there is another one somewhere.
