Not sure why, but this is my most anticipated category of the night…each one of the nominees would be deserving winners.August 19, 2014 at 12:09 pm #327349
Anybody else get a little thrown off with the use of “MM” haha? Keep mixing up “Mad Men” and Matthew McConaughey…August 19, 2014 at 12:06 pm #327975
Frances Conroy winning would be fabulous!August 17, 2014 at 7:23 pm #327727
Shirley Knight won two Emmy’s in 1995 (guest and supporting mini/TV movie). Her perfomance in the “Indictment” movie (for which she tied with Judy Davis) was haunting.August 12, 2014 at 9:29 pm #327216
Christine Baranski had her best year of material to work with in Season 5, but can she win against Anna Gunn?
I think Anna Gunn is the biggest Actress lock of the night, and second biggest overall behind Matt Bomer. Of course, never ever ever count out Maggie Smith in an Emmy category.
Supporting Actress drama (well, I guess comedy too) have had their fair share of suprise winners (i.e., Archie Panjabi, Cherry Jones, Katherine Heigl). Gunn is stellar though, I will give her that. I just hope Baranski will win an Emmy for this role.August 12, 2014 at 5:25 pm #327209

I could see Jim Parsons for “The Normal Heart”….I thought he was very good (not as good as Bomer, but Parsons is definitely up there).
Also, Angela Basset or Frances Conroy (Conroy…who is way overdue for an Emmy).August 12, 2014 at 4:18 pm #326998
I don’t know if she would be a lock. She was kicked
out of the group after one nomination. Don’t get me wrong I LOVED Laura
Linney on The Big C but I don’t think she would have found her way back
Yeah, I don’t think she would have been nominated for
Season 4…way too dramatic. Linney was brillant (throughout the run,
but particularly in those last four episodes), so I’m happy she won for
the role, but she, nor the series, wouldn’t have fared well in the
comedy categories.August 10, 2014 at 3:08 pm #326957
An age old debate, but I dislike SNL performers in the comedy categories.August 9, 2014 at 8:45 pm #326858
I love Ellen Burstyn (“Same Time Next Year” is one of my favorite movies), but I would be angry if she wins again this year. Even though she was good in “Political Animals,” Sarah Paulson should have that Emmy. Now this year, any of the five woman besides Burstyn would be deserving winners (hoping for Conroy, but we’ll see).August 8, 2014 at 5:54 pm #326817
haven’t seen the miniseries/movies in this category, but it’s
interesting that Donald Sutherland wasn’t even nominated for the Emmy
(while Baldwin was).
Very much like Jacqueline Bisset this year.August 6, 2014 at 9:43 pm #325614
Season 6 of “Nurse Jackie” was excellent, but Edie Falco had way better episodes to choose from. The one she picked, “Super Greens” seemed like filler during the season.August 3, 2014 at 1:44 pm #326246
A Melissa McCarthy win would be amazing. It would be so nice to see the “uncool” contender beat the “cool” one who has been overpraised (legendary, unstoppable, titan, it gets to be too much). In the end though, we have to be realistic and predict Julia Louis-Dreyfus again
Funny how JLD was maybe considered “uncool” in the comedy lead actress during her nominations in “Old Christine” a few years ago. JLD was brillant in “Old Christine” (should have won for season 3), and she’s still doing amazing work in “Veep.”
Though I would never have voted for McCarthy in her win…that should be Laura Linney’s (or Martha Plimpton) Emmy.August 2, 2014 at 11:08 pm #326077
The most recent performer tie I could find was in 1995; Judy Davis and Shirley Knight tied for Supporting Miniseries/Movie Actress.
Both good performances, but I’d easily pick Shirley Knight…that scene where she entered the prison and had to remove her clothing was haunting.August 1, 2014 at 10:12 pm #325398
Has any actor or actress ever won a main acting award and a guest acting award in the same year? I ask this as it appears Allison Janney has a legitimate chance to do so this year. She appears to be the overwhelming favorite in guest actress in a drama and a very strong contender (if not the outright favorite) in supporting actress in a comedy series.
I know it is not uncommon for someone to be double nominees in any given year (I believe Louis C.K. has been such the past two years). I cannot recall anyone actually winning both categories in the same year though.
Of course she could lose both categories and go home empty handed, but I get the feeling she will be rewarded with at least her fifth, if not sixth Emmy award this year.
Not exactly guest wins, but Stockard Channing won two supporting (drama and miniseries/TV movie) Emmy’s in 2001. Blythe Danner was also nominated for three (lead miniseries/TV movie, supporting drama, guest comedy) Emmy’s in 2005, and won one. I’m sure there are other cases of people who recieved mutliple acting nominations in one year, and won at least one Emmy in that year.
