Commentary - The legendary Max von Sydow and Game of Thrones? I would be surprised if that combination didn't equal Emmy nomination. The Good Wife has a trifecta of contenders, and while it may seem crazy that all three get in, I honestly see it happening. Reg E. Cathey won last year, and Beau Bridges gets at least one Emmy nod a year these days. That leaves Pablo Schreiber, a nominee last year on the outside, and Critics Choice nominee BD Wong, a nomination that could signal down the ballot strength for Mr. Robot. The Walking Dead duo has gotten a lot of press, but this show has never done well with Emmy voters. The rest of contenders feel like outside shots, except for maybe Ton Hardy, Mark Margolis, and Reed Birney.
