Best Actor in a Drama Series
Will Win - Sterling K. Brown "This is Us"
Could Win - Bob Odenkirk "Better Call Saul"
Should Win - Either Brown or Odenkirk
Commentary - Bob Odenkirk finally has a shot this year, but I think that Sterling K. Brown is a juggernaut in this race. He just won last year, he is beloved among these voters, and of the two shows, This is Us has a lot more support across the acting branches compared to Better Call Saul. I think it is Brown to the podium again. On a personal note, either win would make me happy, both are great actors in great roles.
Best Actress in a Drama Series
Will Win - Elisabeth Moss "The Handmaid's Tale"
Could Win - Claire Foy "The Crown" or Evan Rachel Wood "Westworld"
Should Win - Moss
Commentary - A few months ago, this was Foy's to win, with Wood as the spoiler. But since the premiere of The Handmaid's Tale, Elisabeth Moss has shot to the top. The show did surprising well at the Creative Arts, including the win for Alexis Bledel, Moss is overdue after her Mad Men run, and this role really has the buzz compared to the other nominees.
