LEAD AC­TOR DRAMA

Los Angeles Times - - THE ENVELOPE -

Ster­ling K. Brown, “This Is Us” An­thony Hop­kins, “West­world” Bob Odenkirk, “Bet­ter Call Saul” Matthew Rhys, “The Amer­i­cans” Kevin Spacey, “House of Cards” Milo Ven­timiglia, “This Is Us”

Win­ner: Brown

Analysis: Rami Malek, the reign­ing win­ner, wasn’t nom­i­nated for the sec­ond sea­son of “Mr. Ro­bot,” leav­ing the cat­e­gory open. First thought: I like Brown’s chances, but won’t Ven­timiglia siphon off some votes? Let’s go with Odenkirk. Next thought: Odenkirk is de­serv­ing but if vot­ers re­ally con­nected with “Saul,” wouldn’t they have nom­i­nated Michael McKean’s op­er­atic sup­port­ing turn? Let’s change back to Brown. Last thought: (Flip­ping coin) Yes. Stick­ing with Brown. He won an Emmy last year for play­ing pros­e­cu­tor Christo­pher Dar­den in “The Peo­ple v. O.J. Simp­son,” and he’s just as good as the dorky, gen­er­ous Ran­dall in “This Is Us.”
