    Back in 2011 jaws were dropped when Kyle Chandler won best lead actor in drama instead of the beloved MAD MEN star Jon Hamm, now they are both in contention again. Kyle Chandler will most likely be nominated again for his Netflix series “Bloodline” whereas we all know Jon Hamm will be nominated again for the final season of MAD MEN? Are the episodes of BLOODLINE good enough for Chandler to win a 2nd time? What do ya’all think??

    I’m going to wait until Hamm has a definite winning episode because it’s too early at this point. I am predicting Chandler and Hamm to be nominated together, though.

    Chandler’s spot is in question. Terrence Howard and Hugh Bonneville will sooner get in than him (and Ben Mendelsohn if he goes lead).

    Certainly seems possible at this point. If he submits “Chapter 12” Chandler could be really well-positioned. I’m not positive that Weiner will give Hamm a tape as great as “The Suitcase” was but I sure hope so.

    I think Chandler is very well-positioned for a nomination. He’s an extremely well-liked actor giving an against-type performance (at least in the back half), and the reviews for him have been very strong. Since this has been marketed so heavily as his show, I think — considering the amount of openings in the category — he should get in here relatively easily. That is, unless they dismiss “Bloodline” as a whole, which while unlikely could happen.

    That being said he’s got the best tape of anyone right now. But perhaps it will be the inverse of 2011: Hamm will win on the sentimental vote, even though Chandler has the best tape. With tapes not as strong of a factor I think Hamm has a natural advantage there. We’ll see if he gets a solid tape though.

    Kyle Chandler does nothing even remotely nomination-worthy for twelve out of thirteen episode of Bloodline. But, dammit, he has one great submission, so he will be very competitive if he gets in.

    If Chandler does win, it will be exhibit A of what is wrong with the Emmy voting process.

    Kyle Chandler is more deserving of a nomination for Bloodline than any season he was or wasn’t nominated from FNL.  I was willing to be this with someone else but they wouldn’t take me up on it that I am willing to gaurantee that Hamm never wins an Emmy for this role.  If Hamm couldn’t win with The Suitcase in a year that had no Cranston and his tape being the only thing close to a unanimous favorite, he’s never going to win.  Unless Weiner gives him some debiltating disease and Hamm Million Dollar Baby’s us.

    I’m only up to episode four of Bloodline, but I hardly doubt Chandler’s work in this first season trumps his work in seasons four and one of FNL. Anyways, with an above average tape alone I could see Hamm winning. This is the first year since season foru that I could see him winning. Voters aren’t typically sentimental. But no one from a hot, new acclaimed show will be nominated this year. Cranston’s gone. And I’m doubting someone’s gonna pop up with a “Marine One” type submission.

    Out of all the first six on the prediction center, Chandler has the best tape by far, I see no one else beating him, that would be Meldelson if he went lead. This is one of the most extremely weak year for Lead Actor – Drama, and those two are the only ones that stand a chance , in my opinion.

    You know, the more I think about it, the more I’m really rooting for Hamm. When I think about his performance as Don Draper, I think about how he so perfectly embodies that character. Maybe he didn’t have the best tapes, or maybe he was up against unbeatable competitors, but there’s nothing much to criticize about his performance (unlike <ahem> Spacey <cough>).  He’s done such solid, convincing work on Mad Men, and I feel that he deserves to win one.  Chandler was fine on Bloodline, and maybe he did get one great episode, but Hamm has delivered over the course of an entire series, and that should account for something.   Yes, he still needs a killer tape, and although the first two episodes so far haven’t been knock-out, I’m very much hoping Weiner gives him something that will blow everyone away. Hamm deserves it. I can imagine the reaction at the Emmys if his name were called. 

    Mendelsohn was fantastic, but to me (I’m sure most disagree), he seems better placed in supporting, rather than lead.  

    “We dug coal together. —Boyd Crowder. ”  – Damn you, Denis. 😉 That still chokes me up.

    I actually agree with you and I would also place Mendelsohn in supporting. 

    As for Chandler, I don’t know that he’ll win, but I think he’ll be nominated and I think he deserves it. As everyone has said, Episode 12 is a great tape for him, but I thought he was more than solid the whole season through, particularly the back half.

    That would  be somethng. I never really have taken him too seriously as a threat this go around because I feel like its Hamm and Spacey but he could sneak in there and take that Emmy.

    I hope Netflix actually comes to its senses and put Mendelsohn in leading category where he belongs. The category is very weak this year because Emmy voters are too lazy to watch genre shows so Netflix can quite easily get both guys in leading category.
    Yes, Chandler is quite good in Chapter 12 but he has nothing on Mendelsohn.
    So if Hamm is gonna lose to someone this year I hope it’ll be Mendelsohn and not Chandler.

    Same could be said of Jonathan Banks.

    Neither of them stand a chance for my personal awards.

    Jonathan Banks is a more acceptable case to be nominated because he is clearly a supporting character. Chandler has the most or second-most screentime across the entire season, and really fails to impress.

    As for Banks submitting a tape in which he is a clear lead, well, there have been numerous alternatives proposed, including a 2-tape system, but nothing is perfect.
