    We’ll call it “Riley’s Peter MacNicol rule.” Who among TV’s current crop of guest stars is NOT eligible at the Emmys for Best Guest Actor/Actress? As a reminder, the current rule states that if you are in 50% or more of the eligible season’s episodes, you cannot submit as a guest star. People like Alec Baldwin (“Saturday Night Live”) should pay close attention to this rule to avoid their potential Emmy submissions being disqualified. Who else needs to watch out?

    Baldwin (and McCarthy) could go supporting regardless of the rules and still take home the Emmy.

    Jared Harris- The Crown (IMDB says 5/10 but I’m pretty sure he was in the last episode so 6/10)

    Craig Robinson- Mr. Robot  (7/12 episodes)

    Martin Wallstrom- Mr.Robot (8/12 episodes)

    Tessa Thompson-Westworld (5/10 episodes)

    Clifton Collins Jr.- Westworld (5/10 episodes)

    Simon Quarterman-Westworld (5/10 episodes)

    Lori Petty- Orange is the New Black (8/13)

    Eileen Atkins- The Crown (5/10 episodes)

    Rosario Dawson- Luke Cage (8/13 episodes)

    Kieth Stanfield- Atlanta (7/10 episodes)

    Zazie Beets- Atlanta (6/10 episodes)

    I thought this applied to Mahershala Ali, Bub apparently he was in 6/13 episodes, so he seems like a good bet for guest actor.

    Anjelica Huston and Cherry Jones were both in 5 out of 10 episodes of Transparent season 3, making them ineligible.

    And not that it matters, but June Squibb was in 7 out of 12 episodes of Shameless.

    Jared Harris and Eileen Atkins for The Crown

    Louis Herthum for Westworld

    All of them are credited in exactly 5/10 episodes so if they change it to 50% or less all of them would be competitive but can’t see them being competitive in Supporting races.
