    Or was the mixed reception that the third season recieved or the possibility that his nominations were always name checks in a much weaker category hurt him?

    I think none of the guest nominees last year-from both comedy and drama- wouldn’t make the top 15 in supporting categories.

    If Joe Morton couldn’t make the supporting actor drama cut post-rules change after winning the Emmy in guest actor drama, then I wouldn’t expect Beau Bridges to somehow pull off the feat instead when he hasn’t won for this role yet. He’s certainly more beloved, and he outright deserved to win last year (practically a test screen did over Reg E. Cathey). Let’s not denigrate Bridges’s work as “name-checking” when he’s been win-worthy in the past. Season 3’s critically panned season of “Masters of Sex” does Bridges no favors, and everyone nodded last year in the competitive supporting actor drama category is coming back for more this year. Hopefully some past favs (Patinkin, Voight) and newbies (Slater, Costabile, Romano) stir the pot a little here too. I’d gladly nominate Bridges again in guest actor drama with no rule changes nonsense at play.

    Morton was never going to happen with something like Scandal. And I think winning an Emmy in guest categories are like the kiss of death, as most of them were snubbed right after their win in the same category; so I wouldn’t say that was his advantage. Bridges has actually more chance than him (given his and his shows history with the Emmys) but that isn’t saying much.

    Nowhere did I say that Morton was getting in supporting actor drama or that I predicted him as such. The main point was that if one event didn’t happen for him, then a similar-ish event also wouldn’t happen for Bridges.

    Was Martindale winning for a cameo a big deal for the media and critics? Or were only GD freaking out? Maybe-a little tiny maybe- they’ll snub her. Loretta Devine and Allison Janney were the only ones in this category that weren’t snubbed after their win since 1990. But then again, I don’t know how many of those times they were using panels to select the nominees.

    I don’t think any voter really ranked Martindale first last year for The Americans. She won off being in less last places than others, because everyone likes her; and that was what Emmys all about last year: Who do you hate less. They should at least switch to the Oscars weighted system where first place votes really matters.

    Not very crowded?  We have eight people who have been nominated in this category for their roles eligible, plus Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice winner Christian Slater.
