Emmy Predictions 2022 - Who Will Likely Be Nominated for Guest Actress in a Drama Series?

From June 16-27, 2022, voting is taking place for The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards. As such, it's fun to look at which actors and shows have the best chances of actually being nominated this year. So, these are my predictions for which performers will be nominated for Guest Actress in a Drama Series.

Performers most likely to be nominated:
  1. Harriet Walter for HBO's Succession
  2. Lee Yoo-mi for Netflix's Squid Game
  3. Hope Davis for HBO's Succession
  4. Sanaa Lathan for HBO's Succession
  5. Marcia Gay Harden for AppleTV+'s The Morning Show
Serious threats who could break through:
  1. Martha Kelly for HBO's Euphoria
  2. Jacki Weaver for Paramount Network's Yellowstone
  3. Jordana Spiro for Netflix's Ozark
  4. Alexandra Breckenridge, Jennifer Morrison and Laura Niemi for NBC's This Is Us
  5. Bel Powley, Mindy Kaling, Kathy Najimy and Katie Aselton for AppleTV+'s The Morning Show
  6. Sophie Okonedo for AppleTV+'s Slow Horses
  7. Linda Emond and Ashlie Atkinson for HBO's The Gilded Age
  8. Whoopi Goldberg for Paramount+'s Star Trek: Picard
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. Rosario Dawson, Amy Sedaris and Emily Swallow for Disney+'s The Book of Boba Fett
  2. Andrea Martin for Paramount+'s Evil
  3. Lola Kirke, Gillian Jacobs, Rachel Hilson and Kate Arrington for HBO's Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty
  4. Martha Plimpton for Showtime's The Man Who Fell to Earth
  5. Gabriella Pizzolo and Amybeth McNulty for Netflix's Stranger Things
  6. Karen Aldridge for AppleTV+'s Severance
  7. Cush Jumbo, Elaine May, Wanda Sykes, Jane Lynch, Margo Martindale, CCH Pounder and Jane Curtin for Paramount+'s The Good Fight
Colorful oddities who still have an outside chance:
  1. Eun Chae Jung for AppleTV+'s Pachinko
  2. Sophie Okonedo for Amazon's The Wheel of Time
  3. Phylicia Rashad for OWN's David Makes Man
  4. Betty Buckley and Jordana Spiro for NBC's Law & Order: SVU
  5. Adjoa Andoh for Netflix's The Witcher
  6. Harriet Cains for Netflix's Bridgerton

The nominations for The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced on Tuesday, July 12.
