Who Should Win the Emmy For Best Actor, Drama?

With Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston out of the Emmy race this year, the category for best actor in a drama series is definitely the one to watch. You probably recognize most of the faces who are up for nods (three of them have been nominated four times!) but now it's time to pledge your allegiance to one of these men.


Both Jon Hamm of Mad Men and Michael C. Hall of Dexter have been nominated four times with no wins, while Justified's Timothy Olyphant is an Emmy newbie. Steve Buscemi is also earning his first nomination for Boardwalk Empire, and he's one to watch since he took home the Golden Globe earlier this year. House's Hugh Laurie has racked up four nods with no trophy to speak of, while Kyle Chandler lands in the category for the second year in a row for his work on Friday Night Lights.

It's anybody's game, and we can't wait to see who will earn the trophy for the first time. If you were an Emmy voter, who would you choose — and why?
