    Since True Detective switched categories the lineup for Lead Actor in a Drama has become to this:

    1.Bryan Cranston
    2.Matthew McConaughey
    3.Kevin Spacey
    4.Jon Hamm
    5.Woody Harrelson

    Now the sixth slot depends on two strong contenders: previous Emmy winner James Spader and previous Emmy Nominee Michael Sheen. I think that voters will love MOS more than Blacklist. It is a more prestigous show and it looks like Mad Men and all know what happened to it. But in the other hand, voters love Spader for his previous role as Alan Shore, but his role as Red Reddington is by far the best. So who will get that last slot if Harrelson will probably get nominated?

    It is absolutley the biggest tossup between Sheen and Spader, and I can’t decide either. For a moment, I considered that they both may get in, bumping out Jon Hamm for a sixth [Lead Actor] nomination, but I just don’t see that happening. Emmys love James Spader, so I’m leaning more towards him. Plus it’s a network hit. But Michael Sheen is right under him. (Now watch neither get in and instead Jeff Daniels comes back to defend his title.)

    I’m leaning towards James Spader, but would LOVE Michael Sheen to get in. His performance is much more subtle and tapered, brilliantly so. I’d prefer to have both get in and Woody Harrelson out, but according to most of you, that won’t happen.

    I’m not sure I’d count out Liev Schreiber here. He’s very well respected, a past Emmy nominee, and plays a guy who helps clear the names of the rich and famous in LA. Last night at the “Ray Donovan” Emmy FYC panel, he received a thunderous applause from the packed ATAS auditoriam. Ray also has a near-lock nominee with Jon Voight, so Liev could ride his coattails – not to mention “Ray Donovan” is Showtimes highest rated new series. I’m going to the “Masters of Sex” panel tonight, but I hear it could be a clunker as it was at Paleyfest. 

    My $$ is on a surprise nom for Schreiber, if it’s not Spader in that last spot.

    Before True Detective made it into Drama Series, I would’ve said both, but now, I think there’s only room for Spader.

    Liev Schreiber is not getting in. I’d say the same to Jon Voight’s nomination even has stronger chances than Liev. I’d personally choose Spader. Is badass as Reddington but the fact that TD switched categories makes his nomination nearly snubbed. With the fact that the show is not Emmy Worthy and that MOS’s second season premieres exactly in the same time as the voting period makes look like as a hard decision to pick him. If it wasn’t for TD switched places, both will get in without doubt. By the way, Jeff Daniels will probably not get in. Now he will be in the same list as Eric Stonetreet, Jon Cryer, Kyra Sedgwick, ….

    I wish Sheen would make it in, but I think Spader will before he does, which is a real shame. However, with TD in the mix now, I don’t think either of them will get in, unless there’s a Jeff Daniels snub (entirely possible, but still a longshot).

    I was just having this conversation earlier.  After reading the posts, I agree with this one the most!

    I have Sheen in now, but only because I’m predicting it for Series. If I’m not predicting it for Series sometime down the road I’ll put in Spader.

    Wow. No respect for Jeff Daniels. He won last year. He deserves at least a mention . . .

    There are more than two competing for that last slot.

    Agreed. I’d say it’s Sheen, Spader, Daniels, Bonneville, Lewis, and Rhys…

    I know everyone here wants to count out Lewis because of many (justifiable) reasons but I wouldn’t be so sure that the Emmys are ready to move on from Homeland….

    Currently I have Spader but that could change. Also, as much as I love Hamm and would love for him to take home the trophy sometime before the show is over, I’m not so confident his spot is so secure.

    Wouldn’t it be hilarious if the last spot just ended up going to Bonneville again?
