Emmy predix: Best supporting actor in a drama series

April 15, 2010 |  2:15 pm

Our Emmy prophets Robert "Rob L" Licuria ( and Chris "Boomer" Beachum agree on the six nominees for best supporting actor, but they picked different "Lost" stars to win. Also check out their predix in these races: lead drama actor, best drama actressbest drama series, and best comedy series.

1. Terry O'Quinn ("Lost")
2. Michael Emerson ("Lost")
3. Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad")
4. Martin Short ("Damages")
5. John Slattery ("Mad Men")
6. John Goodman ("Treme")

Alternates: Campbell Scott ("Damages"), Chris Noth ("The Good Wife").

ROB'S COMMENTARY: Now that we know O'Quinn is submitting his name, I think it is safe to say that only he and Emerson will be representing from the "Lost" cast. It would be great to also see Daniel Dae Kim, Naveen Andrews and especially Josh Holloway, but I think two actors will fulfill the "Lost" quota (unfortunately).  Paul will return as will Slattery, and Short will fill that "Damages" slot (with Scott a real threat for a second "Damages" nod here too). I am going out on a limb, not having seen HBO's "Treme" yet, thinking that  Goodman might surprise here. This is a killer category, with lots of choices for voters to mull over. Let's hope they get creative.

1. Michael Emerson ("Lost")
2. Terry O'Quinn ("Lost")
3. Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad")
4. John Slattery ("Mad Men")
5. John Goodman ("Treme")
6. Martin Short ("Damages")

Alternates -- Campbell Scott ("Damages"), Robert Morse ("Mad Men")

BOOMER'S COMMENTARY: Wow! Now that O'Quinn returns to the category, it will be a fierce battle between him and Emerson for the win. Two more of last year's nominees, Paul and Slattery, should be expected back in the race again. I imagine Goodman will be chewing the scenery on "Treme", and as a previous winner and many-times nominee, he should earn a slot. Short has been very impressive playing against type on "Damages," so I think he will also make the category as well.
