Emmy Predictions 2014: Outstanding comedy/drama supporting actor

Will Emmy favorite Andre Braugher dethrone Tony Hale? Will Aaron Paul be part of a 'Breaking Bad' sweep?

Because it's NBC's turn to air the Primetime Emmy Awards this year, and because the Peacock would understandably rather air its lucrative Sunday night NFL package in September, the ceremony will take place in late August again. And as an added wrinkle, this year's ceremony will actually happen on a Monday, August 25 at 8 p.m., with Seth Meyers hosting.

Will Allison Janney beat Kate Mulgrew? And can anyone stop an Anna Gunn repeat?
