    I thought that we have a separate thread for the supporting categories in Comedy and Drama. I feel that the Supporting Actor Comedy and Drama have had little discussion as well as the Supporting Actress in a Comedy. Here are the nominees:

    BEST COMEDY SUPPORTING ACTOR
    Louie Anderson (“Baskets”) — “Thanksgiving”
    Alec Baldwin (“Saturday Night Live”) — “Host: Donald Glover”
    Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) — “Kimmy and the Beest”
    Brian Tyree Henry (“Atlanta”) — “Woods”
    Tony Shalhoub (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) — “Thank You and Good Night”
    Kenan Thompson (“Saturday Night Live”) — “Host: John Mulaney”
    Henry Winkler (“Barry”) — “Chapter Four: Commit… to You?”

    BEST COMEDY SUPPORTING ACTRESS
    Zazie Beetz (“Atlanta”) — “Helen”
    Alex Borstein (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) — “Doink”
    Aidy Bryant (“Saturday Night Live”) — “Host: Chadwick Boseman”
    Betty Gilpin (“GLOW”) — “Debbie Does Something”
    Leslie Jones (“Saturday Night Live”) — “Host: Donald Glover”
    Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live”) — “Host: Bill Hader”
    Laurie Metcalf (“Roseanne”) — “No Country for Old Women”
    Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace”) — “Rosario’s Quinceanera”

    BEST DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTOR
    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (“Game of Thrones”) — “The Spoils of War”
    Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) — “The Dragon and the Wolf”
    Joseph Fiennes (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) — “First Blood”
    David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) — “Will the Wise”
    Mandy Patinkin (“Homeland”) — “Species Jump”
    Matt Smith (“The Crown”) — “Mystery Man”

    BEST DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTRESS
    Alexis Bledel (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) — “Unwomen”
    Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”) — “The Pollywog”
    Ann Dowd (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) — “June”
    Lena Headey (“Game of Thrones”) — “The Dragon and the Wolf”
    Vanessa Kirby (“The Crown”) — “Beryl”
    Thandie Newton (“Westworld”) — “Akane No Mai”
    Yvonne Strahovski (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) — “Women’s Work”

    I have now seen all of the submissions in Supporting Actress in a Comedy. The submissions are all over the place.

    I will rule out Aidy Bryant and Leslie Jones from Saturday Night Live. Aidy had one sketch that was funny and she barely appeared in a few other sketches. Leslie submitted the episode with Donald Glover and Donald dominated this episode. No one else should have submitted this episode. Leslie Jones appeared in three sketches – two were brief. Her funniest moment was when she appeared on Weekend Update and sang the song about the bad men that she met.

    Next up based on submissions are Alex Borstein and Zazie Beetz. Alex is very believable in her scenes, but she is in 2 scenes and she does not appear until about 13 minutes in her episode. Zazie has a lot of screen time in her submission, but I was not impressed.

    Next, I will rule out Kate McKinnon and Laurie Metcalf based on submissions. Laurie submitted her best episode, but she was outshined by Estelle Parsons who should have nominated for Guest Actress in a Comedy.

    Based on submissions, I think that this comes down to Megan Mullally and Betty Gilpin. We should be pleased that Megan actually submitted well because she has a history of poor submissions. Betty had range in her episode.

    Based on submissions, my vote would go to Megan Mullally. I do not think that she will win because of other factors. I do not want any of the Saturday Night nominees to be anywhere near the Emmy this year. Jenifer Lewis and Rita Moreno should have been nominated instead of the Saturday Night Live nominees.

    If voters watched GLOW season 2 (which there’s obviously no way of knowing) Gilpin could totally do this, but I think it’s realistically between Borstein and McKinnon.

    Let’s not dismiss the chance of Metcalf getting a Jon Cryer win.

    This is very true. I just felt that Estelle Parsons owned the episode that Laurie Metcalfe submitted.

    Of the Drama Supporting Actor nominees, I have only seen the following submissions:

    David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) — “Will the Wise”
    Matt Smith (“The Crown”) — “Mystery Man”

    I felt David Harbour was strong in his first scene, but he disappeared quite a bit and then shows up towards the end. Matt Smith appeared to be exercising in the beginning of his submission and then appears at the end. Neither one stood out too much to me.

    Thoughts on Supporting Actor Drama?

    Does Borstein really only have two scenes in her submission? Because I feel like she was a borderline co-lead in some episodes later in the season.

    This analyse is very superficial. Maybe, you don´t watch The Crown and Stranger Things regularly. Or any TV at all, if you haven´t watched the rest. The screen time does not matter that much, especially for supporting actors. Also, this is not true for Matt Smith, he feels like co-lead in his submission, his performance is terrific. David Harbour also gave a terrific performance, he shows range, also his scenes are the strongest in the episode.

    I have watched all the submissions, Smith, Harbour, Patinkin and Waldau have the best tapes. Dinklage have one great scene, Finnes is good, but not great, since he is outshine by all the women.

    Gilpin’s tape is fabulous but I can’t picture her prevailing when Brie and Maron failed to make the cut. Likewise, hard to fathom Mullally winning when the reception for Will & Grace was so lackluster. This applies to Metcalf too – all three have strong submissions. I have a feeling, barring Atlanta or The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel absolutely romping on Emmy night, that McKinnon just repeats.

    I fear Baldwin could win too, though the love for Barry, coupled with his inexplicably not having an Emmy yet, probably puts Winkler over-the-top.

    It doesn’t matter even if she only had two scenes and you know it. That would mean Borstein has more scenes in her episode submission than Balwin had with his only scene in the cold open in his winning SNL “episode submission” last year. If Borstein loses for Family Guy only then will I predict her, because I can see her winning one but not both. I just don’t buy her being a 2-time winner this Emmy year.

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    I wish I could disagree with this. The Cryer win did come for a completely different voting system, but even under the popular and plurality systems sentiment is sentiment, and Metcalf has already won 3 times for this specific role, she was nominated for and lost 3 Emmys in a single year a couple years ago, maybe this is just her time to win again and none of us realize it. I honestly don’t know, though I won’t rule it out anymore.

    I don’t buy her being an Emmy winner at all this year.

    I think McKinnon and Glover could be the only repeats this year. I can see Rhys and Russell winning in Lead more clearly than ever before for some weird reason. Buzz, passion, obviously sentiment for the show in spite of the Emmerich snub? Kirby I’m working up the nerve to switch to, but haven’t gotten there quite yet. Right now McKinnon and especially Glover feel like the most likely repeats, but we’ll have to wait and see how well Maisel does at Creative Arts in general.

    For supporting actress drama, I could still not decide. I feel like Kirby, Dowd, Bledel, Strahovski, Headey, and Newton all submitted their best episode and absolutely kill it. I am guessing Kirby would win on a panel vote, just because the entire episode is about her, because she has extremely baity material, and because she’s phenomenal. Strahovski, Bledel and Headey are mostly subtle in their submitted episodes, which for some odd and stupid reason doesn’t always resonate with people. Newton speaks Japanese, has flashbacks, initiates a Samurai massacre, so there’s that. And then there is Dowd, who is a huge presence in the first 25 minutes. I think if they only showed her scenes, she would win.

    But this isn’t a panel vote. I am still predicting Headey, I don’t need to explain why anymore as I have done so very often now. If THT wins this, then it’s winning series IMO.

    I am not gonna even talk about Brown. She has a chance of course, but I have no idea what she’s doing in this category. But I have hated on her enough now.
