Emmy Nomination Preview 2013 - Guest Actress in a Drama Series

        Saturday, June 29 - Earlier this month, the ballots were released for the contenders for the upcoming 2013 Emmy Awards. With nominations being announced on the morning of July 18, I'm going through all of the major categories and analyzing which performers are most likely to make the nomination list.

Nominees for the 2012 Emmy Awards
        Joan Cusack, Shameless
        Loretta Devine, Grey's Anatomy
        Julia Ormond, Mad Men
        Martha Plimpton, The Good Wife
        Jean Smart, Harry's Law
        Uma Thurman, Smash

        This is a category filled with competition and voters could go any number of ways. It boasts big names like Shirley MacLaine, Jane Fonda, Jennifer Hudson and Bernadette Peters; former Emmy winners Martha Plimpton, Julia Ormond, Stockard Channing, Alfre Woodard, Margo Martindale and Kate Burton; and well-received guest spots from Linda Cardellini, Joan Cusack, Carrie Preston, Diana Rigg, Yvonne Strahovski and Sarah Chalke. Anything could really happen and it's really exciting. So with all that said, here is how I think the chips will fall this year.

NOTE: These rankings are how likely I think people are to be nominated NOT who is likely to win in September.
