Emmy Nomination Predictions: Best Guest Actor/Actress in a Drama Series

Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series
1. John Lithgow "Dexter"
2. James Earl Jones "House"
3. Ted Danson "Damages"
4. Beau Bridges "The Closer"
5. Andre Braughter "House"

Alternates: Len Cariou "Damages", Robert Morse "Mad Men"

Commentary: The first four are pretty much locked in, but that fifth spot is up for grabs. I'm going with Andre Braughter, who will get reward for his guest turn on House, and for his great turn in the underappreciated Men of a Certain Age.

Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series
1. Sissy Spacek "Big Love"
2. Lily Tomlin "Damages"
3. Vanessa Redgrave "Nip/Tuck"
4. Sharon Stone "Law & Order: SVU"
5. Isabelle Huppert "Law & Order: SVU"

Alternates: Tyne Daly "Burn Notice", Allison Janey "Lost", Mary McDonnell "The Closer", Debra Winger "Law & Order"

Commentary: This is a tough race, and there are plenty of contenders. I went with Stone and Huppert, Tomlin and Spacek, as the four locks. I went with Vanessa Redgrave for the fifth spot, because she is...well, Vanessa Redgrave. But don't count out Daly, Janey, McDonnell, or Winger.
