Emmy Predictions 2023 - Who Will Likely Be Nominated for Guest Actress 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 Actress in a Drama Series.

Performers most likely to be nominated:
  1. Harriet Walter for HBO's Succession
  2. Melanie Lynskey for HBO's The Last of Us
  3. Anna Torv for HBO's The Last of Us
  4. Cherry Jones for HBO's Succession
  5. Hiam Abbass for HBO's Succession
  6. Fiona Shaw for Disney+'s Andor
Serious threats that could break through:
  1. Claire Foy, Vanessa Kirby and Natascha McElhone for Netflix's The Crown
  2. Nico Parker, Storm Reid, Merle Dandridge, Ashley Johnson and Christine Hakim for HBO's The Last of Us
  3. Hope Davis and Natalie Gold for HBO's Succession
  4. Betsy Brandt for AMC's Better Call Saul
  5. Mckenna Grace for Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale
  6. Lizzo, Amy Sedaris and Katy O'Brian for Disney+'s The Mandalorian
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. Ella Purnell for Showtime's Yellowjackets
  2. Sian Brooke for HBO's House of the Dragon
  3. Carrie Preston and Phylicia Rashad for Paramount+'s The Good Fight
  4. T'Nia Miller for Netflix's The Diplomat
  5. Margo Martindale and Carmen Ejogo for Showtime's Your Honor
  6. Aya Cash for Amazon's The Boys
  7. Gabrielle Rose for Netflix's The Night Agent
Colorful oddities that still have an outside chance:
  1. Sony Walger for AppleTV+'s For All Mankind
  2. Kirby Howell-Baptiste for Netflix's The Sandman
  3. Li Jun Li for Paramount+'s Evil
  4. Dee Wallace for Paramount+'s Fatal Attraction
  5. Saffron Burrows for HBO's Westworld
  6. Megan Thee Stallion for Starz's P-Valley

The nominations for The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced on Wednesday, July 12.
