Emmy Nomination Predictions
Jason Bateman "Ozark"
Sterling K. Brown "This is Us"
Kit Harington "Game of Thrones"
Richard Madden "Bodyguard"
Bob Odenkirk "Better Call Saul"
Billy Porter "Pose"
Other Contenders - Brian Cox "Succession", Milo Ventimiglia "This is Us", Stephan James "Homecoming"
Commentary - So Jason Bateman, after his SAG win comes into this race with a lot of heat, especially with its rise in Emmy prospects after doing so well in the winter guild awards. I was really hoping this would be Bob Odenkirk's year. He has the best shot he has ever had, if he can withstand the onslaught of newcomers. Sterling K. Brown is still so beloved, he's in, although I think this is the year that Milo Ventimiglia drops out of the race. Billy Porter is not only great in Pose, whose second season is earning raves and buzz right in the thick of Emmy voting, but he is also becoming a style and pop culture icon, which is helping his Emmy chances. Richard Madden is fantastic in Bodyguard, and won the Golden Globe earlier this year. Finally, I think that despite Game of Thrones backlash, that Kit Harington is going to ride a wave of the powerhouse to another Emmy nomination. But, he is vulnerable with Ventimiglia, Brian Cox, and Stephan James all waiting to take his slot.
