The 2014 Emmy nominations will be revealed July 10 and in the days leading up to that big announcement we'll be sharing our dream picks for nods in the big categories. You can find our picks for the reality categories here, Variety Series here, Lead Actor/Actress in a Miniseries or Movie here, Outstanding Movie and Outstanding Miniseries here. Today's focus: Outstanding Guest Actor and Outstanding Guest Actress in a drama series.
The Emmy guest performer categories always prove to be interesting because of the variety of actors and actresses submitted. Sometimes the most unlikeliest of comedic actresses will show up in a drama race. This year's ballot has no shortage of familiar faces and Hollywood star power.
In fact, some stars are even represented more than once. Donal Logue is up for "SVU" and "Sons of Anarchy" and Jeffrey Tambor was submitted for "SVU" and "The Good Wife." This double submission isn't uncommon in a race like this, considering some actors guest on more than one show a year and do a darn good job.
Sometimes an actor or actress you might not expect to billed as a "guest" gets submitted as such, and that also makes the competition even more fierce.
Here are our dream 2014 Emmy nominees for Outstanding Guest Actor and Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series:
