2019 Emmy Predictions: Best Actor in a Drama Series

Will Win - Billy Porter "Pose"

Could Win - Odenkirk, Bateman, Brown, or Harington

Should Win - Bob Odenkirk "Better Call Saul"

Commentary - This is such a wide open race this year, I could honestly see several possibilities. I am picking Billy Porter. Pose did get into Drama Series, he is one of the brightest stars of the moment, and season 2 aired during voting, which received rave reviews. But I could literally see four other guys winning instead. Bob Odenkirk has patiently waited to win this award, and this might finally be the year that he is able to finally win, and honestly, he deserves to get that recognition. Sterling K. Brown is always a threat, as he is a previous winner for this character, and is beloved among voters. Jason Bateman won the SAG for Ozark, and is a perennial nominee, who has never won an Emmy. This could be his chance. Finally, don't discount Kit Harington. Once again, it is easy to argue that his story line was not great this season. But with 34 nominations, voters love Game of Thrones, and that matters more than the quality of the final season.
