Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series
Nominees: Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), Kevin Spacey (House of Cards), Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan), Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us), Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us), Anthony Hopkins (Westworld)Last Year’s Winner: Rami Malek (Mr. Robot)Who Should Win: Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us)
You know Ventimiglia has the ability to make you feel all sorts of things thanks to his turn as Jess on Gilmore Girls (and his return in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life), but this is the best work of Ventimiglia’s career. As the kids say, we have all the feels when watching This Is Us and it’s all thanks to Papa Pearson.Who Will Win: Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us)
Sure, Hopkins is an acting legend and Ventimiglia is turning in the best performance of his career, but Brown, who won an Emmy last year for his work in The People v. O.J. Simpson, is one of the most soulful actors on TV right now.
