The Best Drama Actor category at the Emmys is guaranteed to have a different winner as last year’s champ Kyle Chandler won for the final season of “Friday Night Lights.”
Leading the contenders as the pick of eight Experts and nine Editors is Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”). He won this race for each of the first three seasons of the AMC drama which was on hiatus last year.
In second place is four-time nominee Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”) who is the pick of one Expert and one Editor for his role on this AMC period piece.
Kelsey Grammer, a four-time Comedy Actor winner for “Frasier,” has the support of one of our Editors for the first season of his Starz series “Boss.”
