Emmy Predictions: Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series

The Nominees:
1. Mike O'Malley "Glee - Wheels"
2. Neil Patrick Harris "Glee - Dream On"
3. Fred Willard "Modern Family - Travels With Scout"
4. Eli Wallach "Nurse Jackie - Chicken Soup"
5. Jon Hamm "30 Rock - Emmanuelle Goes To..."
6. Will Arnett "30 Rock - Into the Crevasse"

Should Win/Will Win: Neil Patrick Harris

Commentary: My gut tells me that this one is tough race, and that Fred Willard will come up and win the award, but I'm going with the flashier performance of Neil Patrick Harris, who gets to not only act, but sing, and has much more screentime than his competitors. But he's younger, and has missed the cut with his How I Met Your Mother Role a few times, for lesser quality actors, so maybe they don't like him as much as everyone else does. Also don't count out the rest of the competition. Jon Hamm and Will Arnett had great turns on 30 Rock, but this year all the buzz is going to its two newest competitors. Eli Wallach is an acting legend, and an Emmy winner, so don't count him out. Finally Mike O'Malley had a great turn in Glee, but I think that the NPH will have more support.
