Will Win - Michael Douglas "Behind the Candelabra"
Could Win - Matt Damon "Behind the Candelabra"
Should Win - Douglas or Damon
Commentary -In any other year, Damon's performance, which has huge range, physical transformation, empathy, and substance abuse would easily win an Emmy award, and he still could. But I don't think any of these nominees can overcome the power of Michael Douglas. An Academy-award winning actor who has remained popular, Douglas' transformation into Liberace was hailed by critics, and is just the kind of over-the-top transformation that Television Academy voters love. I don't think anyone can beat him, not even his great co-star.
