Commentary - So this race is a toss up for me. I feel like Stanley Tucci will win another Emmy for his entertaining role in Feud, and I feel like his co-star Alfred Molina is a lock for a nomination. Beyond that, I honestly don't know. Martin Freeman is a perennial nominee, David Thewlis is the strongest from a weaker season of Fargo and she has a huge role in Wonder Woman. Hank Azaria is a favorite among these voters, even though The Wizard of Lies was kind of a dud. Finally, Alexander Skarsgard started off on the outside. But Big Little Lies is on the rise, and I think he joins his female cast members with an Emmy nod. Watch our for Reg E. Cathey who is a recent winner, James Cromwell is a classic, Michael Kenneth Williams is a recent nominee, and Idris Elba is, well, Idris Elba. Also never doubt the American Crime and American Horror Story boys, although it feels like those shows have peaked a bit.
