Commentary - Once again The Good Wife seems like it could end up dominating the Guest categories, as four contenders in particular: Matthew Perry, Michael J. Fox, Dylan Baker, and Nathan Lane, all have a legitimate chance of getting a nomination. This could become like a Modern Family type sweep. But they have some stiff compeition. Previous Emmy winner and television legend Jimmy Smits once agian competes for an Emmy nomination. Sons of Anarchy has never been a favorite of the Television Academy, but if anyone can break that streak it is Jimmy Smits. Parenthood finally got its first Emmy nomination last year for Jason Ritter. While he returns to the race, I think that it is Ray Romano who has the better shot this year at a nomination. I would love to see William Daniels get another Emmy nomination, as I loved his role on Grey's and let's face it: he's Mr. Feeny! In all seriousness though, he is definitely a name to consider. Some other strong contenders include Chris Messina (in several roles), Ciaran Hinds in Game of Thrones, one of the many choices from Justified, particularly O'Malley and Barry, Rupert Friend for Homeland, and two Emmy favorites, Ed Asner and Andre Braugher for their roles in SVU.
