This category is anyones guess this year. Last years winner Matthew Rhys (The Americans) won for the shows last season. Westworld nominees Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright won’t be in contention this year either, leaving only Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us) and Jason Bateman (Ozark) back to fight for the prize – and both are sure to be nominated once again. It’ll be great to see some new blood injected into this typically stale category.
My early predictions for Lead Actor in a Drama Series:
- Sterling K. Brown – This Is Us
- Jason Bateman – Ozark
- Billy Porter – Pose
- Bob Odenkirk – Better Call Saul
- Richard Madden – Bodyguard
- Liev Schriever – Ray Donovan
- Milo Ventimglia – This Is Us
Are any of these drama actors on your Emmys radar? Did I forget any?
2019 Emmy nominations will be announced Tuesday, July 16th, get ready for a lot of coverage leading to the final day as potential nominees heat up or cool off.
