The Envelope's Gold Standard columnist Glenn Whipp is sweeping through Emmy categories this week, predicting the winners in the top categories. Having already looked at the series, lead actor and lead actress races, he turns his attention to the supporting players, forecasting a first-ever win for a member of the "Mad Men" ensemble.
SUPPORTING ACTRESS, DRAMA
Christine Baranski, "The Good Wife"
Joanne Froggatt, "Downton Abbey"
Anna Gunn, "Breaking Bad"
Christina Hendricks, "Mad Men"
Archie Panjabi, "The Good Wife"
Maggie Smith, "Downton Abbey"
And the winner is ... Hendricks. "Mad Men" has never won an acting Emmy, but Hendricks owns a showcase episode this year with "The Other Woman," in which Joan pondered prostituting herself for financial security.
