2014 Emmy Predictions: Best Drama Supporting Actor

2014 Emmy Predictions: Best Drama Supporting Actor

Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions through August 25th, when the winners will be announced. 

Is this Aaron Paul’s trophy to lose? It’s certainly hard to imagine the Television Academy not honoring the “Breaking Bad” star in his final season, partly because he’s just so damn likable and partly because he simply deserves it. Still, it’s also Josh Charles’ last season on “The Good Wife” and after its Drama Series snub, voters could look to make up for it somewhere else. Or Peter Dinklage could take the trophy as the stand-out actor of the most nominated show. The rest of the crew would need a bit of luck to win, but that doesn’t make the race any less exciting. 

Below are predictions for best drama supporting actor from both Indiewire Awards Editor Peter Knegt and TV Editor Ben Travers. Check out predictions in all the categories here.

The nominees: 
Jim Carter, “Downton Abbey”
Josh Charles, “The Good Wife”

Peter Dinklage, “Game of Thrones”
Mandy Patinkin, “Homeland”
Aaron Paul, “Breaking Bad”
Jon Voight – “Ray Donovan”

Ben’s predictions:
Will win: Aaron Paul, “Breaking Bad”

Could win: Aaron Paul, “Breaking Bad”
Should win: Aaron Paul, “Breaking Bad”
Shoulda been here: Peter Sarsgaard, “The Killing”
