Emmy Predictions 2023 - Who Will Likely Be Nominated for Guest Actor in a Drama Series?

From June 15 to 26, 2023, voting is taking place for The 75th 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 Actor in a Drama Series.

Performers most likely to be nominated:
  1. Nick Offerman for HBO's The Last of Us
  2. Murray Bartlett for HBO's The Last of Us
  3. James Cromwell for HBO's Succession
  4. Jon Gries for HBO's The White Lotus
  5. Giancarlo Esposito for Disney+'s The Mandalorian
  6. Andy Serkis for Disney+'s Andor
Serious threats that could break through:
  1. Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Michael McKean, Tony Dalton, Mark Margolis and Juan Carlos Cantu for AMC's Better Call Saul
  2. Arian Moayed, Justin Kirk and Ashley Zukerman for HBO's Succession
  3. Lamar Johnson, Gabriel Luna, Keivonn Montreal Woodard, Troy Baker and Jeffrey Pierce for HBO's The Last of Us
  4. Timothy Dalton, Alex Jennings, Khalid Abdalla and Prasanna Puwanarajah for Netflix's The Crown

  6. Forest Whitaker for Disney+'s Andor
  7. Bruce Davison, James Badge Dale, Peter Stormare and Michael Spears for Paramount+'s 1923
  8. Michael McKean for Netflix's The Diplomat
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. John Cameron Mitchell for Showtime's Yellowjackets
  2. Peter Mullan for Amazon's The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power
  3. Jack Black, Christopher Lloyd, Omid Abtahi, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee and Ahmed Best for Disney+'s The Mandalorian

  6. Bradley Whitford, Richard Cabral and Greg Grunberg for NBC's Law & Order: SVU
  7. Paul Wesley for Paramount+'s Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
  8. Paul Reiser for Amazon's The Boys
Colorful oddities that still have an outside chance:
  1. Charles Dance and David Thewlis for Netflix's The Sandman
  2. Wallace Shawn for Paramount+'s Evil
  3. Lin-Manuel Miranda for HBO's His Dark Materials
  4. Jonathan Pryce for AppleTV+'s Slow Horses
