Emmy Wish List- Guest Actor in a Drama

He won the award in 2009 for his role on Rescue Me, and he was nominated last year for this The Good Wife performance, so I have to say that Michael J. Fox is the favorite in the 2012 Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series race.  I also have Fox as a favorite in the comedy counterpart...boy would that be quite the double victory!  I like his Good Wife brethren Matthew Perry and three-time nominee Robert Morse to play Fox's biggest competition.

Michael J. Fox - The Good Wife
Chris Messina - Damages
Robert Morse - Mad Men
Edward James Olmos - Dexter
Matthew Perry - The Good Wife
Mykelti Williamson - Justified

I like Justified to repeat its nomination in the category from last year, only this time it will go to Williamson.  Jeremy Davies was great again this season, but his Dickie Bennett just wasn't a big enough part of the story this time around.  Although many critics hated this season of Dexter, it always does well at awards shows, and Olmos is a big enough name to steal one of the final spots.  My final prediction belongs to Chris Messina for his work on Damages.

Emmy Wish List
Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) - Dexter
It was a surprisingly great performance by Mos Def on this season of Dexter.  With the mess of a season the show put forth, his performance was one of the only bright spots in 2011-12.  Well that, and the news that Yvonne Strahovski will be on next year!
