Emmy Predictions 2024 - Who Will Likely Be Nominated for Guest Actor in a Drama Series?

From June 13 to 24, 2024, voting is taking place for The 76th 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. Néstor Carbonell for FX's Shogun
  2. John Turturro for Amazon's Mr. & Mrs. Smith
  3. Paul Dano for Amazon's Mr. & Mrs. Smith
  4. Michael Emerson for Amazon's Fallout
  5. Kyle MacLachlan for Amazon's Fallout
  6. Darren Goldstein for HBO's The Gilded Age
Serious threats that could break through:
  1. Wagner Moura, Ron Perlman and Billy Campbell for Amazon's Mr. & Mrs. Smith
  2. Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Keegan-Michael Key, Arian Moayed, Stephen Moyer and Blair Underwood for CBS' Elsbeth
  3. John Bradley for Netflix's 3 Body Problem
  4. Corbin Bernsen and Vincent Pastore for Showtime's The Curse
  5. Michael Braugher for HBO's The Gilded Age
  6. Sam Waterston for NBC's Law & Order
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. Morgan Freeman for Paramount+'s Special Ops: Lioness
  2. Jonathan Pryce for AppleTV+'s Slow Horses
  3. Danny Burstein for Max's Tokyo Vice
  4. John Goodman for AppleTV+'s Monarch: Legacy of Monsters
  5. Rob Morgan and Tracy Letts for HBO's Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty
  6. Lars Mikkelsen, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee and Evan Whitten for Disney+'s Ahsoka
Colorful oddities that still have an outside chance:
  1. Paul Wesley for Paramount+'s Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
  2. Lance Reddick for Freevee's Bosch: Legacy
  3. Cameron Cowperthwaite for AppleTV+'s Sugar
  4. Elliott Gould for Netflix's The Lincoln Lawyer
  5. Will Patton for AppleTV+'s Silo
  6. David Cronenberg and Oded Fehr for Paramount+'s Star Trek: Discovery

The nominations for The 76th Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced on Wednesday, July 17.
