Emmy Nominees: Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 5/6, missing Porter

Here we have one of our biggest snubs – Richard Madden, whose show managed to score in the top race without him! His omission is truly puzzling. The six men who did get nominated all have their shows recognized there too. Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us) and Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us) are both back, along with Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) and Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) both returning after a season off the air and a season of not being nominated following his promotion to this category. Jason Bateman (Ozark) has cause for celebration, with his show performing much better this year, and he’s joined by the lone freshman nominee and sole representative of his show, Billy Porter (Pose). I don’t watch those last two shows, so I’ll be doing some sampling soon.

Who should win? Of the performances I’ve seen, I’d probably pick Odenkirk, but I’m fine with any of them.
Who will win? Everyone thinks it will be Odenkirk, and with Golden Globe winner Madden out of the way, it probably will be.
