Emmy Nominees: Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 6/6

Here we have one of my only perfect scores, so don’t be fooled because it’s the first category I’m writing about today. Five of the nominees are on shows nominated for Best Drama Series, starting with past winner Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us) and Josh O’Connor (The Crown) from the nominations leader. Regé-Jean Page (Bridgerton) is his show’s only acting nominee, while Matthew Rhys (Perry Mason), whose show missed the top category, is one of his series’ only representatives in any category. Billy Porter (Pose) is finally in good company with costar Mj Rodriguez nominated for best actress, and it’s good to see Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country) too given that his inclusion was not a sure thing.

Who should win? I don’t watch Page’s show but the rest are all great choices. I’d pick Porter. Who will win? I see this going to O’Connor without much trouble unless Porter wins again.
