Emmy Nomination Preview 2013 - Supporting Actor in a Movie or Miniseries

        Friday, June 28 - 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
        Tom Berenger, Hatfields & McCoys
        Martin Freeman, Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia
        Ed Harris, Game Change
        Denis O'Hare, American Horror Story
        David Strathairn, Hemingway & Gellhorn

        There is no chance for any repeats in this category this year. However, there is also a very short list of about seven performers vying for the five slots - James Cromwell, Zachary Quinto, Peter Mullan, Jeffrey Tambor, Rob Lowe, Dan Aykroyd and James Woods. Unless the voting academy truly embraces Behind the Candelabra or Top of the Lake, those are the seven names expected to make the list. 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.

* = My Top 5 performers - the ones I would vote for if I had a ballot.
