Emmy Predictions: Best Actor in a Drama Series
1. Kyle Chandler "Friday Night Lights"
2. Bryan Cranston "Breaking Bad"
3. Jon Hamm "Mad Men"
4. Michael C. Hall "Dexter"
5. Hugh Laurie "House"
Should Win: Kyle Chandler "Friday Night Lights"
Will Win: Hugh Laurie "House"
Commentary: This has proven to be one of the most difficult to predict. Kyle Chandler is fantastic in Friday Night Lights, but should be happy with a nomination. Despite Mad Men's success I think that Jon Hamm will once again be on the outside looking in. Then come the big three. Bryan Cranston has won this category two years in a row, and has a lot of passioniate supporters, but I think that he faces some stiff competition and may miss out, although his winning would not shock me one bit. Michael C. Hall has the story of survival, plus his devilish role on Dexter that I think he is the one to beat. However, Hugh Laurie's submission this year on House was his best yet, and he has yet to win an Emmy, so the overdue combination plus the best submission leads me to believe that he will finally win an Emmy for this show.
