Emmys: Best Guest Actress – Drama

masters-of-sex-1-06-margaret-in-blueBest Guest Actress – Drama

Allison Janney, Masters of Sex
Jane Fonda, The Newsroom
Margo Martindale, The Americans
Diana Rigg, Game of Thrones
Kate Mara, House of Cards
Kate Burton, Scandal

Last Update: 07/12/14

Allison Janney just gives a damn near perfect performance in “Masters of Sex.” It’s possible though that she is snubbed and replaced with anyone else in the category, watch out for Jane Fonda in “The Newsroom,” a show voters seem to have some love for apparently.

Emmys: Best Guest Actor – Drama

Robert-Morse-Mad-Men-season-7-episode-6-Bert-Cooper-Robert-MorseBest Guest Actor – Drama

Robert Morse, Mad Men
Beau Bridges, Masters of Sex
Paul Giamatti, Downton Abbey
Dylan Baker, The Good Wife
Reg E. Cathey, House of Cards
Joe Morton, Scandal

Last Update: 07/12/14

The guest categories can always be tricky. This is the last chance though that voters can give this one to Robert Morse in “Mad Men.” I believe that he’ll edge out critical favorite Beau Bridges for the statue.

With many new spectacular shows, and many great shows returning, you can easily find yourself speechless in a conversation about the best of 2014. Now that arguably one of the greatest shows of all-time is finished – “Breaking Bad.” Who will take the throne?
