Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”) could become the first person to ever win as Best Drama Supporting Actor three times. He is currently tied with Michael Conrad (“Hill Street Blues”), Larry Drake (“L.A. Law”), Stuart Margolin (“The Rockford Files”), and Ray Walston (“Picket Fences”) with two wins each.

No nominee in this category is a rookie at the Emmys. Bobby Cannavale (“Boardwalk Empire”), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), Mandy Patinkin (“Homeland”), and Paul are past winners while Jonathan Banks (“Breaking Bad”) and Jim Carter (“Downton Abbey”) are previous nominees.

Cannavale is a double nominee this year. He also has a bid as Comedy Guest Actor for “Nurse Jackie.”

Carter is married to Imelda Staunton, an Emmy nominee this year as TV Movie/Miniseries Supporting Actress for “The Girl.”

It has been 24 years since the last Emmy nomination for Banks who contended in this same category for “Wiseguy” in 1989. That is the longest period between bids for any acting nominee this year. Banks is also the only person ever nominated in this category for two different shows.

Want to win an Emmy? Try playing tipsy or act the lush or even full-blown alcoholic. 

Normally, the high-strung and introverted Dr. Sheldon Cooper on "The Big Bang Theory" would never have a drink. However, in the 2010 episode "The Pants Alternative," he is very nervous about accepting an award so starts knocking back the booze to loosen up and ends up removing his pants. Jim Parsons submitted that episode to Emmy judges and won Best Comedy Actor for the first time.
