    Guest acting categories tend to be so wide open, with a very different set of contenders every year, which is probably why the nominees default to respected names the voters recognize, whether they really did anything or not. But every once in a while a name slips in that couldn’t have been a name-check: character actors like Christian Clemenson, Michael Emerson (pre-“Lost”), Glynn Turman, Reg E. Cathey, and Joe Morton. Jason Ritter managed to get in despite the TV academy’s complete “Parenthood”-blindness.

    Who among this year’s guest acting contenders have the best chance of being nominated — or even winning — even though they’re not particularly well-known?

    Those are all big names. She won a damn Oscar this year.

    When you think about who’s voting from the industry, guys like Turman, Cathey, and Morton are longtime respected names in Hollywood circles. Turman was almost Han Solo. But I get what you mean.

    If we’re talking about great character actors like those guys who just aren’t household names, consider Mimi Rogers, Matt Frewer, Tom Noonan, Mykelti Williamson, Ciaran Hinds, Mark Moses, H. Richard Greene, Jon Glaser, and Jeff Fahey as potential surprises. It sort of depends which shows are getting love en masse.

    If we’re talking about actual relative unknowns/more recent supporting successes in the acting world, Michaela Watkins, Ian Harvie, Mel Rodriguez, Kerry Condon, Aaron Staton, Warner Miller, and many more could latch onto a wave of support for their respective shows.

    Bruce Greenwood would be a logical choice here if he had been in fewer than 4 episodes.

    This year, with the number of great shows out there, there will certainly be some surprises.

    Lars Mikkelsen made a pretty strong impression in a few episodes of House of Cards, and I could see him getting in. He has had previous tv appearances in The Killing, and Sherlock, but definitely hasn’t had the same success as his brother Mads. I could see him getting a nomination if the voters really like House of Cards.

    Lars Mikkelsen was EXCELLENT on HoC – I would love to see him get a nom.

    Kelly Ripa on Broad City would make my year. Yes, she just parodied an extreme version of herself, but if we don’t get a Susie Essman nomination for Broad City (probably its only chance for a nom this year sadly), then I fully support Ms. Ripa!!!

    I also support Jamie Lee Curtis on New Girl – not sure if she was submitted, but she as an excellent tape with the “Oregon” episode. She’s always been consistently great as Jess’ mom.

    If HBO really pushed Getting On enough, June Squibb “Getting On” would be a sure fire spot. 
    Seth Rogan could pop up if The Comeback overperforms
    Dean Norris and Richard Kind for Unbreakable Kimmy Schimdt
    If he is in guest, Richard Kind for Gotham and Carol Kane for Gotham

    I’m personally rooting for Jenifer Lewis. She’s kind of in the same tier as Loretta Devine, but Loretta has a longer list of credits. I would compared Jenifer’s potential nomination to her, but I don’t think she’s as well known as Loretta. Her category is such a shit show, so if she manages to get in she should easily win. Her challenger should be Susie Essman. Just started the recent season of “Broad City” and she killt as Ilana’s mom. Oh and Rhea Pearlman too! Ideally, that category should have those three locked up and then the others. That would be a mother of a competition.

    Agree with June Squibb although I think what hurt her last year was how many shows she was submitted for. Speaking of “Getting On” Laurie Metcalf for Best Actress in a Comedy if that happens the series finale would be a winning tape!

    It should have been Christian Camargo from “House of Cards” winning the Emmy outright, but Netflix didn’t even submit him on the ballot. :-/

    Maybe Rachel Brosnahan? Gordon Clapp? Scott Glenn would make a fine nominee if voters have any sort of affection for “The Leftovers.”

    I’m rooting hard for Julia Duffy in “Looking” and Jon Glaser from “Girls” on the comedy side.
