2015 Emmy Predictions – Best Supporting Actor (TV Movie or Mini-Series)

billmurray_olivekitteridgeFINAL EMMY PREDICTIONS: This is one of those categories that doesn’t have an obvious frontrunner.  Stephen Rea could ride the coattails of co-star Maggie Gyllenhaal as can Bill Murray with co-star Frances McDormand.  “American Horror Story” manages nominations and wins in these categories which could bode well for Michael Chiklis and co..  We have a lot of diversity with choices like Louis Gossett, Jr., Mike Epps, and Michael Kenneth Williams.  Being famous also helps which could push someone like Ralph Fiennes, Nick Nolte, or Christopher Walken over the finish line.
