Few trends have been as prevalent in TV as the rise of the male antihero. Walter White and Don Draper ushered in a new era of TV bad boys that would dominate the landscape. A simple perusal of the shows out today focus on men who can’t quite behave. Even further, Emmy can’t help but love them. That’s right. This week, we take a look at the best actor nominees in drama, comedy and miniseries/TV movie.

Once again, the rules for lead actor slightly differ than what we have seen before. Both the drama and comedy series nominees are tasked with submitting only one episode to represent their performance. However, voters are tasked with watching the entire miniseries/TV movie for the best actor nominees in that category. Still up for the task, we poured through all nominees and are ready to see who will and should win these categories.
