Will Win - Gerald McRaney "This is Us"
Could Win - Ben Mendelsohn "Bloodline" or Hank Azaria "Ray Donovan"
Should Win - Gerald McRaney "This is Us"
Commentary - Hank Azaria won this category last year, and Ben Mendelsohn surprisingly won the supporting category for these same characters on this same show. Both of them are threats, and while it would disappoint me, it would not surprise me if either won. It would disappoint me because after forty years on television, Gerald McRaney has finally earned his first Emmy nomination. Not only is he so overdue its ridiculous, but he also is the heart and soul of This is Us' incredible pilot. If episodes mean anything, he is the best of the bunch, and he is the most deserving episodes be damned. I think and hope voters agree.
