Emmy Episode Analysis: Will SNL or Laurie Metcalf dominate Guest Acting Wins?


It’s time to move on from the people behind the scenes and dip our toes in the pool of talented actors and actresses on our television screens.

In order to be considered eligible for a Guest Acting Emmy, one must have appeared in less than half of the episodes in the eligible season. Poor nominee Peter MacNicol (“Veep”) found this out the hard way. He was disqualified after it was revealed he was in half of the episodes in “Veep’s” fifth season.

This week, we are taking on four categories – Guest Actor and Actress in both Drama and Comedy categories. Please be warned, spoilers to follow, thought we will try and keep it to a minimum.
