Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 4/8

Let’s start with the good. I’m happy that expected nominees Billy Crudup (The Morning Show) and Bradley Whitford (The Handmaid’s Tale) didn’t get snubbed. I’m excited that Mark Duplass (The Morning Show) showed up since he really wasn’t expected and did deliver a very strong performance. After sitting down to watch all of “Succession” this year, I’m okay with the potentially excessive inclusion of three actors from that show: Nicholas Braun (Succession), Kieran Culkin (Succession), and Matthew Macfadyen (Succession). What makes me sad is that, even with lots of buzz for both of their shows, Josh O’Connor (The Crown) and Tom Pelphrey (Ozark) couldn’t score. And I just can’t understand how Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul) and Jeffrey Wright (Westworld) were selected over their costars for their work in this past season – they just weren’t the standouts. I’m also surprised that, even with his show making it in for Best Drama Series, past nominee David Harbour (Stranger Things) wasn’t nominated.

Who should win? Crudup or Whitford
Who will win? I think this goes to Crudup since the “Succession” boys split the vote.
