Emmy Predictions 2011: Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series

In anticipation of the upcoming 63rd Annual EMMY Awards (Airing Sunday September 18th at 8PM on FOX, CTV in Canada) theTVaddict.com is proud [or not-so-proud depending on how things turn out] to once again present our GUARANTEED EMMY WINNERS 2011*

NOMINEES: Steve Buscemi (BOARDWALK EMPIRE), Kyle Chandler (FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS), Michael C. Hall (DEXTER), Jon Hamm (MAD MEN), Hugh Laurie (HOUSE), Timothy Olyphant (JUSTIFIED)

SHOULD WIN: Kyle Chandler, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
If four years of egregious Emmy snubs have proven anything, it’s that football is clearly not members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences game. Which is why, in an effort to ensure members don’t fumble this last opportunity to recognize Kyle Chandler for five seasons of excellence, we thought it best to put it in terms the voting body (Read: Predominantly over-privileged middle-aged white men) might better understand: Kyle Chandler is to acting as to a pre-scandal Tiger Woods was to Golf. Got that?

WILL WIN: Jon Hamm, MAD MEN
Not only has Hamm inexplicably yet to win an Emmy for his complex and layered portrayal of Don Draper, anyone who has seen the insta-classic that was “The Suitcase” will tell you, it pretty much had “For Your Consideration” written all over it.

SNUBBED: John Noble, FRINGE
Seriously Emmy Voters, just how many characters does this man have to play before you start recognizing his genius?

*theTVaddict.com does not guarantee his “winning picks.” Do not, I repeat, Do not bet the house, kids or family pet on them!

    This definitely should be Jon Hamm’s year.  Especially with Bryan Cranston out of the running.
