    I'm thinking Diana Rigg finally gets an acting win or Samira Wiley translates her nom last year in Supporting to a win in Guest. Right now, I'll go with Wiley.

    I think Handmaiden's Tale will split the votes so Diana Rigg

    Diana Rigg is winning for that iconic line. And it will be deserved!

    I hope it's either Viola Davis or Cicely Tyson. I'm rooting for Tyson. What a brilliant performance.

    IMO the winner should clearly be Samira Wiley by a mile, and I actually think she can win.

    I didn't care for her nomination last year, but in this category, against this competition, at least she actually has an episode that showcases her talent and gives her something to actually do.

    Diana Rigg - Never cared for her performance over the years. She just sits on a chair with her outfit and says words. Don't even dare @ me, GoT fans, because I said what I said.
    Viola Davis - she won the main Lead Actress prize for this role, and doesn't need a throwaway Guest Emmy for it too, even though she of course is always good.
    Cherry Jones - did absolutely nothing in her 2 episodes of The Handmaid's Tale, clearly a name-check nomination.
    Kelly Jenrette - didn't really do anything other than yell at Elisabeth Moss and call her a bitch. Not Emmy worthy.
    Cicely Tyson - Every season of HTGAWM, her guest appearances are basically the same, so if she couldn't win before, despite being a veteran (which this category loves to rubberstamp) I don't see why she'd all of a sudden win now. She's fine, but...

    Give it to Samira Wiley, imo.

    I can easily see them throwing a name-checking bone Viola, for snubbing her in the main category. Remember Margo won for ordering a cup of tea. She didn't even bothered to choose a flavour. Just tea.

    I'm predicting Rigg, just for how iconic that line is and because there's not an obvious frontrunner like Bledel last year, but watch out for Viola.
