For me its the the most exciting race at this year.three equally great performance.i would be happy if mendelsohn or kelly win this cause i feel banks is more like a guest actor.

Based on season performance:
4-BanksAugust 27, 2015 at 4:38 pm #359408
If Mendelsohn was in the lead race he could win based on submission. I still think he should have gone in lead category, but he gave the best performance and deserve wins.

Mendelsohn all the way. I’ll be really mad if he loses to Banks.August 27, 2015 at 5:04 pm #359410
It would be ok if either of them win, Banks deserves for all his work playing “Mike”, Mendelsohn deserves for making it for the season all the way toe to toe with Chandler which is really something and in a way he gave decent acting on a average show.August 27, 2015 at 8:24 pm #359411
Will win: Mendelsohn. Banks has an amazing tape, but Mendelsohn has probably the best submission by any actor this year.
Should win: Mendelsohn. Sorry Banks and Banks fanboys. I love the guy´s performance, but he does not deserve an emmy for one episode out of ten. Yes yes, only the submission maters, and its incredibly strong, just not as compelling as Mendesohn´s work.
Could win: Obviously Banks is a huge threat, and rightfully so.August 27, 2015 at 11:05 pm #359412
Ben Mendelsohn all the way baby! I have a feeling Jonathan Banks will win it though.August 28, 2015 at 4:43 am #359413
Hopefully Mendelsohn gets the win, he deserves it the most!August 28, 2015 at 11:37 am #359414
Jonathan Banks all the way here.August 28, 2015 at 12:32 pm #359415
Banks deserves it based on his tape. But he was barely there most of the season and didn’t make much of an impact in Better Call Saul as a whole.
Ben Mendelsohn on the other hand, was thoroughly great throughout the whole first season. Most of the narrative was based around him. That plus his submission = a win in my book.
But I think Banks has more buzz (and a previous nomination for the same role) so I think he’ll win over Mendelsohn.August 28, 2015 at 12:47 pm #359416
When you look at the nominees across their shows entire season, it is even more baffling how Patinkin missed out.
Banks, Dinklage, Carter, Kelly and Cumming all had good episodes every now and then, but nothing consistently brilliant throughout the run.
On that logic, of the nominees Mendelsohn deserves to win for being consistently good throughout the season, but based on the submissions, I’d say it’s between Kelly and Banks.
Such a weird race this is though.August 28, 2015 at 2:10 pm #359417
Put your vote where your mouth is…2015: Outstanding Supporting Actor – Drama Series…? Your vote counts here…August 29, 2015 at 6:38 am #359418
Again, best supporting actor in a drama series is one of the most interesting categories of the year. I think this category is also a real test as to how well the new voting system works.
As some members here are claiming, does this new system actually reward the actor who gave the best performance across an entire season (Mendelsohn)? Or do voters simply check off the most popular or familiar name (Dinklage or Banks)?
Not to mention as some members here who hated the tape system have complained about, does an actor who truly only had one or two great episodes (as opposed to an entire seasons work) sneak in and win based off of the strength of one submission (again Jonathan Banks).
Considering submissions really do not matter anymore and we have no idea who actually is voting for these categories, I am very interested to see who wins this category.August 29, 2015 at 1:31 pm #359419
This is nearly the easiest call of the night for me and several others I am sure, hence this thread not existing for so long. Mike is a fan favourite and a lot of people saw “Five-O”. I expected the critics to go with Mendelsohn since they saw the complete seasons, but even they could not resist and I would think that a higher percentage of them saw Bloodline. Peter Dinklage is a dark horse because of his SAG nominations.August 29, 2015 at 2:38 pm #359420
While he wasn’t that prominent in the season, Jonathan Banks did very well in every epsode of “Better Call Saul” and he gave his career-best performance in a single episode here and not in “Breaking Bad”. Thankfully he ended up submitting it.
This category looks like the one to honor “Better Call Saul” with major win and “Five-O” was good enough to be considered one of the best written episodes of the year. Jonathan Banks for the win!
