Curious about this.July 9, 2020 at 10:22 am #1203578109
Voted Tim but I would also check Gossett Jr off.

Nelson is by far the best and should win. The other three would also be worthy nominees though.July 9, 2020 at 10:45 am #1203578176
Not saying he’s the best (he’s probably not), but Yahya Abdul Mateen II sticks in my mind the most. Perhaps also because of his impressive physical presence on screen!July 9, 2020 at 11:08 am #1203578213
They’re all great, but possibly my favorite scenes of the series were anything with King and Gossett Jr, so I had to go with him. He’s just so compelling without even having to get out of the chairJuly 9, 2020 at 11:59 am #1203578335
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II was good, but he had some of the best writing of the decade on his side. Did he elevate it? How high was the bar for him? Tim Blake Nelson fully embodied the fear and weariness of his character.July 9, 2020 at 12:03 pm #1203578339
Yeah, I don’t think he deserves as I thought he did the bare minimum that was required of him and nothing more.July 9, 2020 at 12:30 pm #1203578386

To be honest, I think I’ve had that thought on my mind but I wasn’t sure how to vocalize it. He’s great in that episode, but in the previous before that when he doesn’t have the material, he doesn’t really come across as interesting. The other three were more consistently engaging.July 10, 2020 at 8:13 am #1203579872
Interesting results. I voted Gossett Jr., and expected Nelson to win handily, but I’m (pleasantly) surprised to see Abdul-Mateen do well! Even Adepo scored some votes! Maybe all four can sneak into the category…July 10, 2020 at 8:30 am #1203579911
Very tough choice, they all had splendid momentsJuly 10, 2020 at 8:41 am #1203579927
Difficult. All 4!July 10, 2020 at 8:50 am #1203579943
I feel weird saying this but Tim Blake Nelson by far.July 11, 2020 at 1:00 am #1203580892
I voted for Yahya because I was so captivated by his on-screen presence that I couldn’t not vote for him. But Tim Blake Nelson was amazing and Louis Gosset Jr also knocked it out of the park. I’ll echo what everyone else said and probably vote for all 4 lol.July 11, 2020 at 1:05 am #1203580898
Good question. They were all terrific
Nelson and Gossett Jr were the most consistent and were captivating throughout the whole series but Adepo had the best single episode with This Extraordinary Being

Adepo made a strong impact on me with the Tulsa episode. But at the same time Nelson was truly mesmerizing as Looking Glass.Not now
