Lead Actor In A Drama Series
Jon Hamm will be disappointed not to have won this Emmy before, despite consistently solid performances as the dapper Don Draper in Mad Men. His biggest rival this year will be Steve Buscemi, who won the equivalent prizes at the Golden Globes and SAG Awards for his performance as 'Nucky' Johnson in the Martin Scorsese-directed Boardwalk Empire. We think that Buscemi's excellent performance in the show's debut series should just be enough to ensure Hamm goes home empty-handed again. The other nominees are Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights), Timothy Olyphant (Justified) and Hugh Laurie (House).
Our prediction: Steve Buscemi
