    As we all know, the Emmys made up a new rule last year where an actor/actress who is billed as a guest star, but still appears in 50% or more of the episodes, is put into the supporting categories instead of the guest categories. This was most likely done to avoid category frauds like the did the year before (OITNB ladies, Joe Morton). 

    For the past two years Beau Bridges has been nominated for the Best Guest Actor category for his role of Barton Scully in Masters of Sex. In the third season Bridges is in 6 out of the 12th episodes, forcing him into the supporting categories. 

    Do you guys think Bridges will make it in? Is he well liked enough in the industry to do it? Or will 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?

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    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.

    Voters will just give Janney a perennial nom a la Martindale.

    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.

    A lot of critics on Twitter were making fun of it, but there wernt any major articles (except for Emmy recaps) that were criticizing the win. It wasnt as big as Ellen Burstyn when she got nominated for Mrs. Harris

    It isnt a very crowded category, so he could pop up based off name recognition alone

    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.

    I used to think he’d be nominated until Horace and Pete officially became a drama, now I think Alan Alda will take his spot. I’d be surprised if both of them got in.

    I meant acclaim wise, nobody is praising Jim Carter or Michael Kelly’s performances in their respective seasons. There aren’t a lot of strong performances that the Emmy voters feel like they would have to nominate
