Bryan Cranston is the overwhelming favorite to win his fourth straight Best Drama Actor Emmy for his indelible portrayal of Walter White on "Breaking Bad." But, think about it long enough, and questions begin to surface. Will the TV Academy really honor him a fourth time when he has two more shots at Emmy glory ahead of him? Does he display, in his submitted episode ("Crawl Space"), such overwhelming superiority and dominance over his fellow nominees that voters won't even dare to consider someone else? My hunch, and it is a very slight one at this point, is that, based on the episode submissions, dutifully watched, his competition is strong enough in what is always one of the toughest categories of the night. After watching the likes of Damian Lewis ("Homeland") and Jon Hamm ("Mad Men"), I am not totally convinced that this category is a done deal.
