2016 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series

Will Win - Kit Harrington "Game of Thrones"

Could Win - Peter Dinklage "Game of Thrones" or Jonathan Banks "Better Call Saul"

Should Win - Jonathan Banks "Better Call Saul"

Commentary - These voters owe Banks an Emmy, but I think that this race comes down to the two Game of Thrones guys, unless a miracle split vote can make it go another way. Peter Dinklage has won this race several times, and when episodes didn't matter as much last year, his popularity, and the show's popularity propelled him to an unexpected victory. If popularity and buzz matter, then I think Kit Harrington is going to win an Emmy this year. Jon Snow had a revival of a season, and his character got plenty of juicy story lines. Dinklage could easily repeat, but I think that the Game of Thrones love will be spread around, finally, to some of its other cast members.
