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, and Outstanding Guest Actor and Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama here. Today's focus: Outstanding Guest Actor and Outstanding Guest Actress in a comedy series.
It's time to take a look at the people who made us laugh on TV this year who weren't stars of their respective shows. Sometimes guest stars are total comedic scene steal stealers who deserve recognition, even if they have minimal amounts of screen time. And this category is kind of a wild one -- the ballot includes everyone from Jerry Seinfeld to Drake.
This was a tough one to make a wish list for, especially since many of the fantastic ladies of "Orange Is the New Black" are considered guest stars. And one glaring omission, in our opinion, was Sally Phillips as the Finnish prime minister on "Veep." Oh well.
Nevertheless, we have made our choices. Here are our dream 2014 Emmy nominees for Outstanding Guest Actor and Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series:
