2012 Emmy Nomination Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a TV Movie/Miniseries

2012 Nomination Predictions
1. Ed Harris "Game Change"
2. David Strathairn "Hemingway and Gelhorn"
3. Michael Gambon "Page Eight"
4. Powers Boothe "Hatfields & McCoys"
5. Ralph Fiennes "Page Eight"

Other Contenders - Martin Freeman "Sherlock: Scandal in Belgravia", Tom Berenger "Hatfields & McCoys", Denis O'Hare "American Horror Story", Evan Peters "American Horror Story", Tony Shalhoub "Hemingway and Gelhorn"
Commentary - This one is chocked full of contenders, and it really is hard to narrow down to just five. My guess is that there are a total of ten actual possibilities, and only five slots. Ed Harris is a shoo-in, and probably the frontrunner, as the Television Academy loves nothing more than film stars and Oscar nominated/winning actors to dive into television. I also feel pretty confident about David Strathairn, who won this award for Temple Grandin, and although H&G wasn't exactly the masterpiece people were expecting, I still think he is a strong contender. Two Page Eight contenders look to compete, and while I'm pretty sure about Michael Gambon, Ralph Fiennes is the weakest of my predictions, he could easily be overtaken by O'Hare or Berenger or Freeman. Powers Boothe is also in the final five, and I am pretty confident about that pick as well. Although he and Fiennes are the ones that need to watch out for their competitors.
