EMMY AWARDS 2011 – Preview – Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series


  • Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
  • Josh Charles, The Good Wife
  • Alan Cumming, The Good Wife
  • Walton Goggins, Justified
  • John Slattery, Mad Men
  • Andre Braugher, Men of a Certain Age

Due to Breaking Bad not being eligible for this Emmy’s, Aaron Paul is not returning as a nominee, so he will not be able to defend his award from last year. That means a new winner will emerge from this category, where there’s has been a new winner every year for the last 15 years.

Mad Men’s John Slattery seems overdue to win this category as he has been nominated the past 3 years.  He submitted his most emotional episode yet, where his character looses his biggest publishing account and he finds out that his lover is pregnant.

However, he will have to face Josh Charles and Alan Cumming from The Good Wife. Josh Charles has a lot of screen time in his episode, where he has to delay the deliberations of a trial of his innocent client, plus in the final scene his character Will Gardner ends in a hotel suite with Alicia (Julianna Margulies). Alan Cumming’s episode shows his character Eli Gold in crisis of conscience, where he tries to expose the illegal nanny (America Ferrera) of his opponent’s candidate, but he befriends her. Probably, Josh Charles has a bigger role in his episode compare to Alan Cumming,

Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones and Walton Goggins from Justified could also take the award. However, Andre Braugher from Men of a Certain Age has the disadvantage that his show is already canceled.

Prediction: Josh Charles, The Good Wife

Spoiler: Alan Cumming, The Good Wife

Wish Winner: Josh Charles, The Good Wife
