For the second year, all performers who appear in 50% or more of a show’s episode count must go supporting at the Emmys. This means, just like last year, we’ll be seeing a lot of folks ineligible for the guest star categories. Can you think of any guest stars who appeared in too many episodes to be considered a guest, so they’ll have to go supporting at the 2016 Emmys?December 24, 2015 at 2:18 pm #366391
Orange is the New Black: Lea DeLaria, Jackie Cruz, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Laverne Cox, Mike Birbiglia, Kimiko Glenn, Lori Petty, Ruby Rose, Annie Golden, Emma Myles, every other notable guest star (besides Matt McGorry and Mary Steenbergen).
You’re the Worst: Todd Robert Anderson, Allan MacLeod.
Sense8: Alfonso Herrera, Anupam Kher.
The Leftovers: Steven Williams, Jasmin Savoy Brown.
Mr. Robot: Frankie Shaw, Michel Gill, Sunita Mani.
Jessica Jones: Robin Weigert, Susie Abromeit.
Fargo (if somehow relevant): Cristin Milioti, Angus Sampson, Bokeem Woodbine, Jeffrey Donovan, Rachel Keller, Emily Haine, Brad Garrett, Nick Offerman.December 24, 2015 at 4:43 pm #366392
It’s crazy, almost all of the “Transparent” guest stars are ineligible, save for Anjelica Huston (2 episodes) and Bradley Whitford (3 episodes). The others are all in 5 or more.December 25, 2015 at 10:54 am #366393

Isn’t Scream Queens an anthology (or intended to be)?December 25, 2015 at 12:38 pm #366395
Isn’t Scream Queens an anthology (or intended to be)?
”The series will not be completely anthological in nature with Murphy stating, “Whoever survives—and there will be people who will survive—they will go on next season to a new location and a new terror. Unlike [Murphy and Falchuk’s other like series] American Horror Story, which completely reboots, this has some of the continuity in that some of the characters and some of the relationships continue into a new world.”
AHS:Freak Show had also some characters and relationships from previous seasons in it and that still didn’t stop them to submit as miniseries, though, so who knows what will they do with this…

You are mistaken about nearly all of those. Re-read the thread title.December 28, 2015 at 2:21 pm #366399
I just assumed that he was using this existing and related thread to size up actual guest contenders.December 29, 2015 at 8:28 am #366400
Margo Martindale in The Good Wife already appeared in 9 episodes, and she is set to appear in another 2 episodes at the very least, which brings to a total of 11 out of 22 episodes, so she must go supportring. And since she’s very popular these days, she could get in and potentially kick Christine Baranski out of the race.December 29, 2015 at 9:57 am #366401

Hmm that’s a very interesting and fairly plausible theory, but I doubt they’ll bump Baranski for Martindale. Baranski is clearly admired in this role by the Emmys as she’s the only cast member to be nominated for every season thus far. If we’re to give any credence to the alphabetical ballot theory bandied around Gold Derby every awards cycle, then Baranski will be name-checked way before they see Martindale, too. I won’t even make the argument that Baranski has two decent submissions already while Martindale hasn’t had any material that has been submission-worthy, despite her large amount of screen time, because we all saw what she won with last year…

Can we start calling her “Character Actress Margo Martindale” pretty please?January 1, 2016 at 10:51 pm #366403

Melora Hardin, Rob Huebel, Michaela Watkins, Brett Paesel, Tig Notaro, Jason Mantzoukas, Richard Masur, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Jenny O’Hara should all be fair game. That covers the bulk of the big roles (in one episode or overall) and/or big names. Most of the handful of people in too many episodes basically had regular-sized roles anyway.
