Emmys: Check out our picks for supporting actress in a drama series

Josh CharlesThe Good Wife

Portraying the undulating emotions of a lover (and colleague) scorned, Charles put forth his best work in his final season. How good was he? He has two killer tapes to choose from: the game-changing "Hitting the Fan," in which a confused, livid Will executes the Desk Sweep Heard 'Round the World (watch it here), and the 100th episode, "The Decision Tree," in which an entire interrogation beautifully unfolds in Will's head. 

Peter DinklageGame of Thrones
Dinklage in Season 4 of Game of Thrones comes down to one speech and one scene. As Tyrion was unjustly put on trial for Joffrey's murder in "The Laws of God and Men," Dinklage delivered an insta-Emmy reel highlight, unfurling the Imp's long-repressed indignation and pain in a devastating monologue. Dinklage, who won in 2011, is the only Thrones actor to have been nominated every year.

Noah EmmerichThe Americans
Suffice it to say, Stan did not have it easy this season. Between the collapse of his marriage, his growing and now-fractured affair with Nina, and nearly committing treason, the veteran character actor captured Stan's conflicted isolation with a moving, understated subtlety. And he did it all without wearing a wig!
