Emmy Experts: Drama Guest Actor will be Beau Bridges (‘Masters of Sex’) or Robert Morse (‘Mad Men’)

The Creative Arts Emmys take place this Saturday (Aug. 16) giving you precious little time to make or change your predictions in the race for Best Drama Guest Actor. Gold Derby polled 13 Emmy Experts and the consensus amongst our gurus is that Beau Bridges (“Masters of Sex“) or Robert Morse (“Mad Men“) will reign supreme on Emmy night. Do you agree with these findings?

Below, we break down who each of our Experts are predicting to claim Emmy glory, and we reveal the one Expert brave enough to go his own way and cast his vote for Joe Morton (“Scandal“) instead.

Dylan Baker | Beau Bridges | Reg E. Cathey

Eight of the 13 Experts think the Emmy will go to Bridges: Robert Bianco (USA Today), Joyce Eng (TV Guide), Matthew Jacobs (HuffPo), Lynette Rice (People), Matt Roush (TV Guide), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood) and Ken Tucker (freelance).

And four Experts declare the winner to be Morse: Mike Cidoni (Associated Press), Lynn Elber (Associated Press), Scott Feinberg (Hollywood Reporter) and Steve Pond (The Wrap).

The lone holdout is Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), who dares to cast his vote for Morton. None of the other Experts even have Morton amongst their Top 2 choices.

Reg E. Cathey (“House of Cards“), Paul Giamatti (“Downton Abbey“) and Dylan Baker (“The Good Wife“) receive no first-place votes from our our baker’s dozen Emmyologists, although Cathey does score a second-place prediction from Jacobs.
