    I'm just here for the idea of Sterling Brown winning three Emmys in a row.

    But I think Matthew Rhys can win, and it will be deserved. Should have been nominated back in Brothers & Sisters days

    I'm thinking the top 6 - Brown, Rhys, Ventimiglia, Harington, Wright and Schreiber - is too solid for anyone else to break in.

    Category locked, signed and sealed. NEXT!

    Brown winning again looks so annoying, especially being undeserved

    Milo Ventimiglia, This Is Us
    Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us
    Matthew Rhys, The Americans
    Liev Schreiber, Ray Donovan
    Jason Bateman, Ozark
    Freddie Highmore, The Good Doctor

    It shouldn't be but yeah it could end up being an uninspired group of nominees.

    Michael K. Williams (Hap and Leonard) delivered a brilliant performance particularly in his handling of the effects of traumatic violence on Leonard. Jeffrey Wright's performance on Westworld is a wonder. Volker Bruch was riveting in Babylon Berlin - he did not hit a false note over 16 episodes and that final scene was a doozy. JK Simmons was superb in Counterpart. Matthew Rhys was terrific yet again on The Americans. Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine may have stolen the show but Jason Mitchell's performance on The Chi will hopefully not be overlooked (same goes for the series).

    So yes seeing a show I don't find watchable (I have made it through only a few episodes) such as This Is Us getting multiple nods here would be disappointing.

    This is messssy.

    the double This Is Us nod could easily repeat due to the "weak" field. It was a great call for HBO pushing Wright lead.

    Rhys
    Brown
    Harrington
    Wright
    Schreiber
    Ventimiglia

    yeaaaah.

    possible also: Malek, Bateman, Highmore. I'd say Simmons, but Starz is incapable of getting anything major, for whatever reason.

    Heartbroken to see COUNTERPART's Simmons having 0 votes in the poll and being perceived as such a wild longshot, which he unfortunately must be since all the noms will be divided between the 3 or 4 shows the Emmy watch. Because, if they actually WATCHED it, it would be hard to bypass such a towering (double turn).


    I won.

    With double noms for Westworld and This Is Us could so called vote splitting happen and push Matthew Rhys to a final season win for the Americans. While Russell should be winning any win for the final season would be great.

    Would be nice but if they didn't nominate Noah even in that weak af category I don't really see them awarding The Americans over their favorites.

    It's not like they like This Is Us much either. It underperformed last year and it got even fewer nominations this year. I'm not even expecting it to get nominated for Series next year. Rhys definitely has an opening IMO.
