Who Should Win Emmy For Best Supporting Actor in a Drama?

Who Should Win the Emmy For Best Supporting Actor, Drama?

The Emmy Awards are still a month away, but it's never too soon to start analyzing the nominees and making our winner predictions. This year brings another crop of talented actors and actresses into the mix, some old faces, and some brand new. Let's start breaking down the categories with best supporting actor in a drama series.

The men who made this year's nominee list are Mad Men's John Slattery, Walton Goggins of Justified, Alan Cummings for The Good Wife, Peter Dinklage of Game of Thrones, Josh Charles for The Good Wife, and finally, Men of a Certain Age's Andre Braugher.

Believe it or not, only two of these guys — Slattery and Braugher — have been nominated for these characters before, and with last year's champ, Aaron Paul, out of the running, it's anybody's game. Think you know who should win? Here's your chance to tell me why! I want to hear you make your best case for the actor of your choice, so let the comments roll in!

Peter Dinklage was very good in Game of Thrones, but his horrific, half-ass British accent distracted from the performance for me. Walton Goggins was brilliant in Justified...he deserves the Emmy.

Hopefully Peter Dinklage (1st choice) or Walter Groggins. Nothing against Slattery, and Mad Men is great, but Matt Weiner annoys me, soo...

I always love John Slattery in Mad Men, and last season was especially good!

I'm pulling for Alan Cumming. The Good Wife is the best show on tv, and I'm hoping this year someone besides the divine Juliana Marguiles gets recognized. I'd be tickled pink for Josh Charles to win too, but my money is on Alan.

This is hard... Alan Cumming is simply perfect.So I think I will root for him. But Peter Dinklage did a great job too. Also love Josh Charles, but I think the two above deserve it more.
