As we continue to break down this year's Emmy nominees, it's time to take a step up from supporting actors and actresses and take a closer look at the leads. The race for best lead actor in a drama is a pack of heavy hitters to say the least; four of these guys have been nominated in their roles before!
Let's start with the newcomers: Matthew Fox scored his first nod for the final season of Lost, while Kyle Chandler's name appears for the first time after being overlooked in past years for Friday Night Lights. This marks Hugh Laurie's fifth nomination for House and Bryan Cranston's third for Breaking Bad (Cranston is also undefeated thus far!). Michael C. Hall and Jon Hamm also have three nods apiece for Dexter and Mad Men, respectively.
The competition is so fierce even I'm having trouble figuring out who deserves the trophy. That's why I need you all to weigh in and help me decide: state your case for the man that deserves the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama series!
