2019 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series

Will Win - Peter Dinklage "Game of Thrones"

Could Win - Jonathan Banks "Better Call Saul" or Nikolaj Coster-Waldau "Game of Thrones"

Should Win - Banks

Commentary - With only two other competitors, Peter Dinklage is almost being universally picked to win this award. I get it. He has won several times, including last year, and Game of Thrones is the biggest contender on the block. But, I am nervous since Alfie Allen got that surprise nod. It is just hard for a contender to overcome that much internal competition. I think Jonathan Banks could sneak in here, if the vote is split. He is a well-liked veteran, has been nominated over and over again for this role, and its about damn time Better Call Saul win a big award. If anyone can overcome two co-stars in the mix it is Dinklage, but don't be shocked if he doesn't pull it off.
