    Kyle Chandler blows everyone out of the water with that episode (Part 12), he should win and Mendelsohn too.

    I’m going to have to go with Kyle Chandler. I know we are all expecting Jon Hamm to get that farewell and much elusive Emmy, what with tapes being a secondary factor in this race. They will still have to watch those tapes though.
    And Chandler’s tape is all kinds of performance orgasms. Dramatic, action filled greatness. When ranking the winners, i don’t see him getting 4th to 6th place votes. The same way Jeff Daniels won this category 2 years ago.

    There’s no question that I would choose Jon Hamm. He should have two emmys by now but sadly that hasn’t happened and with this competition there is no other choice for me but Hamm.

    Would love for it to be Jon Hamm. The finale focuses on him, and is a great showcase for him – especially the phone calls.

    Kyle Chandler seems popular, but when I watched his episode the first time around, I didn’t get a sense of ‘this will win him the Emmy’, maybe a second viewing may get me that feeling. He has won here before, so is on the voters winning radars more than Hamm is. 

    Kevin Spacey is brilliant, but could be overshadowed in his tape by Robin Wright. 

    I am working my way through Better Call Saul, and have yet to see Odenkirk’s episode. He is good, but not at that winning level for me yet. 
     
    I don’t watch The Newsroom or Ray Donovan.  

    My Personal Ranks: My Actual Predicted Outcome:
    1. Jon Hamm – Mad Men 1. Jon Hamm – Mad Men
    2. Kevin Spacey – House of Cards 2. Kyle Chandler – Bloodline
    3. Bob Odenkirk – Better Call Saul 3. Bob Odenkirk – Better Call Saul
    4. Kyle Chandler – Bloodline 4. Kevin Spacey – House of Cards
    5. Jeff Daniels – The Newsroom
      6. Liev Schreiber – Ray Donovan

    I want Jon Hamm to win because of the due factor. But I am predicting Kyle Chandler. He wasn’t given a lot all season until “Part 12” and then he just fired on all cylinders.

    This is a really tough one. I’ve started watching “Ray Donovan” and Schreiber is fantastic, but I think we can rule him out. Jeff Daniels is obviously very well liked, with a win for “The Newsroom” before, but I don’t think they’ll give him another one. “Better Call Saul” got in for Lead Actor, Supporting Actor, Best Series and Best Writing, which shows they liked it. Bob Odenkirk is the centre of it all, and has a really good chance. Kevin Spacey is a legend, he could win for “House of Cards” but he lost to Daniels in 2013, I don’t see him winning.

    All in all, I think its between Kyle Chandler and Jon Hamm. Hamm has the overdue factor on a popular show, but voters aren’t sentimental. Chandler is a favourite of the voters and is superb in “Bloodline” so really, judging by what happened with Carrell, I’ll go for Chandler.

    1. Kyle Chandler , “Bloodline”
    2. Jon Hamm , “Mad Men”
    3. Bob Odenkirk , “Better Call Saul”
    4. Jeff Daniels , “The Newsroom”
    5. Kevin Spacey , “House of Cards”
    6. Liev Schreiber , “Ray Donovan”

    Agreed with everyone here, it’s absolutely between Chandler and Hamm. Hamm deserves to win, and I’ll be predicting him the whole way, but if I’m going objectively, Chandler has just as much chance. Nobody else is even close.

    Kyle Chandler. Ever since I saw “Part 12”, if he could get nominated and submitted that episode, I believed Chandler would have a very strong chance to win. It happened and so I have my 500 pt bet on him and am not switching from it. We all underestimated Chandler before, and I won’t do so again.

    I really think Odenkirk could upset here but I’ll go with Jon Hamm right now. I think the new voting system helps Hamm a lot, as the significance of the tapes aren’t what they used to be. 

    1. Jon Hamm
    2. Bob Odenkirk
    3. Kevin Spacey
    4. Kyle Chandler
    5. Jeff Daniels
    6. Liev Schreiber

    Impossible race to predict, Hamm is overdue, Chandler has the best tape, Spacey is oscar winner legend and Schreiber has a tape as strong as Hamm’s. My guess is that it is Hamm’s emmy to lose.

    I think the only reason I wanna lean towards John Hamm is because everyone thinks he HAS to win ONLY because its his last chance, and everyone is just influenced by the overdue factor. ADMIT IT!

    But lets face it, there are others who have better submissions: Kyle Chandler and Bob Odenkirk have the best tapes.

    It all depends on whether the voters will want to give MM an acting award. But one thing´s for sure, it´s not Hamm´s to loose.

    I’ve seen all submissions besides Liev. I Personally think Odenkirk has the best tape. I still have Jon Hamm winning followed by Kevin then Bob then Kyle Then Jeff then Liev. It’s a hard catagory but I just have a feeling that him not winning an Emmy is gonna spark a lot of voters. Mad men being a four time drama series winner with no emmy for the leading man who has been amazing every season is a crime.

    Now that they’re not doing the thing with the (committees/viewing panels, whatever it was called) anymore, do episode submissions really matter that much?  These seem like busy people who don’t have time to watch all the episodes submitted.  I am currently unemployed, have no family, and spend a great deal of time watching television, and even I doubt I have time to watch everything submitted.  Working my way through the miniseries category right now.  Anyhoo, I do think Kyle Chandler has the best submission.  He is very impressive on that show.  If I were a voter I don’t know what I would do, because I love Jon Hamm, Kyle Chandler, and Bob Odenkirk.  I think those are our frontrunners with the best submissions.  But as far as predicting goes, I wouldn’t have the guts to pick anyone other than Jon Hamm. The majority of them were probably watching Mad Men, and I wouldn’t be so sure there were large numbers of voters watching the other shows the nominated actors are on.  Maybe a great deal of them watch House of Cards, but Kevin Spacey’s character seems too unlikable to win in a lead actor race.  Who would want to give Frank Underwood a hug?
