AFT Awards: Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series

This is the first category of the 13th Annual AFT Television Awards, my personal choices for the best in television during the 2018-2019 season. This year, I’m including a shorter list, with just nominees and a few finalists, if applicable. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them.

Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series

Last year’s nominees: Paul Bettany, Taylor Kitsch, Rami Malek, Giovanni Ribisi, J.K. Simmons

Emmy nominees: Jason Bateman, Sterling K. Brown, Kit Harington, Bob Odenkirk, Billy Porter, Milo Ventimiglia

Finalists: None

The nominees:

Billy Porter (Pose)
J.K. Simmons (Counterpart)
Diego Luna (Narcos: Mexico)
Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul)

The winner:

Richard Madden (Bodyguard) was immensely focused, always ready to spring into action, and the character was enhanced by the conflicted loyalties he demonstrated as he navigated the contradictions of his duties.
