    Who should win – Bryan Cranston. A great arc, his work in Ozyamandias and Felina is incredible. McConaughy is a great surprise in True Detective however there is an equally strong argument to be made for Woody Harrelson winning. Spacey is a great actor stuck in 1 dimensional role, with no tape that’s compelling about his character – but there’s certainly hope for next year, I mean look at Robin Wright, in Season 1 I was against a lead actress nomination but season 2 I’m for her winning it!

    Matthew McConaughey is good, but he does not quite have the range of Bryan Cranston and as soon as I saw this terrific True Detective parody on YouTube that nails Rust Cohle’s mannerisms, I lost some respect for the performance.  I would put Matthew Rhys on The Americans ahead of him.  Just speaking in terms of episode submissions, I would also put Michael Sheen ahead of McConaughey.  Rounding out the category, I would have Woody Harrelson, who I thought had the most cathartic moment in True Detective when he broke down in the finale, as well as the consistently excellent Jon Hamm.  In other words, what are you doing bringing Kevin Spacey into this discussion?  He is so hammy that he should not be nominated against these men and I have not even mentioned Hugh Dancy, which is a performance that I know that you love.

    I guess I can understand the inclusion of Spacey based on name and likehood of nomination, but his performance makes me wish there was a Razzies for TV.

    Matthew McConaughey.

    Just let him have his year guys. The guy was rompcom for so long, he is finally having a taste of pure and inspired acting bliss.

    He is a great actor, but his award worthyness stems from how incredible his turnaround is and the acclaimed and good acting choices he currently makes. That can’t go un-noticed.

    Cranston by a mile.  I’m a huge fan of McConaughey as well, but no performance this year (male or female) comes close in my eyes.  I’d also rank Hamm and Harrelson well ahead Spacey.

    He already stole an Oscar for it.  He does not need an Emmy too.

    Matthew McConaughey. But I won’t stop rooting for Jon Hamm though.

    Bryan Cranston SHOULD win by a mile and I’m betting he WILL win as well.

    Cranston should win by far. If I  was an Academy Member I would have given 5 Emmys for him. McConaughey deserves it too, but in the Miniseries category. Spacey is good, but his range is not as huge as Rust and Walt. Frank is like a calm down demon; he nerver loses control.  It’s a shame that Cranston and McConaughey won’t get Emmys in their respective categories. Now only one can take the trophy.

    Cranston, but McConaughey isn’t too far behind. Winning is another story.
