Again I am somewhat hampered by my unfamiliarity with AMC post 1984 ;) so I may be embarrassed if Consuelos, Mathison or Duhamel take it. I understand Duhamel is quite good and a hottie to boot. :D
I'm back to the sheer power of the P&G wave...the system is organized and backing excellent actors with excellent performances. So...I'm down to Leyden and Hendrickson. Leyden is great but I think somewhat hampered by a mostly strictly romance storyline, and his pretty boy looks (which are considerable, let me tell you! I may be married but I'm neither blind nor dead!).
Hendrickson has had an strong year, strong material, and a strong history in the genre.
OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS
OK, this may be me, but I'm so done with Ripa fever! She was everywhere for awhile and is still visible in most places. Take a break Kelly. :)
Back to the P&G girls...Menighan Hensley and West are fierce, able actresses with cool, feminist, heroic bad girl roles. Love 'em both, but I think they may hurt each other, voting wise. Chapel's Olivia...she lost Josh to Reva (what a surprise!), made unethical business deals and boinked Alan...yawn. So-so storyline although well done.
I'd like to see (IMO) long shot Ehlers take it. Her character has had a pretty good year, has had a lot of personal growth, and Ehlers is a very personal, revealling, emotive actress. She deserves an award and this might be her year.
OUTSTANDING YOUNGER ACTOR
I see a toss up between Torkildson and Young. Ironically funny, there's no love lost there between Young and the B&B team. Things were said, feelings were hurt...LOL. ;)
PC's Presley might take it...you never know. He's the only PC nom, that might help him. Vilasuso...maybe. He's the victim of a false pregnancy scam, isn't it? How well does stupidity play at the Emmys? I'm not at all familiar with McCartney and haven't seen any buzz that fills me in on him.
GH is a strong show...I'm going out on a limb here with Young (and I hope the cameras pan the B&B table if he wins...and vice versa if Torkildson takes it!)

OUTSTANDING YOUNGER ACTRESS
OK...McKeon, Jimenez, and Finnegan are all fine actresses. Finnegan in particular in this trio (IMO she has a decent chance of taking this!). But...for the most part, eh, I'm not seeing Emmy-quality work here. Just good work. Sisco has a strong chance, she has a murder story and amnesia backing her up (LOL).
I'm going with Riegel partly based on her excellent work, high visibility and still cutting edge story; and partly based on her taking advantage of a wee little P&G backlash. The P&G machine is outrageously evident in this category in particular. JMO
