12 Emmy nominations to his name. 2 wins for writing "SCTV Network 90," and coincidentally, Levy won alongside his "Schitt's Creek" co-star Catherine O'Hara in 1982 who was a co-writer on the program. But we weren't obsessed with Eugene Levy then. We're obsessed now. It's his to lose.
Final season coronations are rare (i.e. Jon Hamm) and they can often just do what they want, no matter the cost (i.e. Jim Parsons over Steve Carell for "The Office").
Don Cheadle is up to his 10th nomination and has yet to make any headway with the TV Academy and getting his overdue citation.
He's the sole nomination for "Black Monday" once again and that can't really get you the Emmy win you deserve. He may need another vehicle in his future or the show to catch on more for a win to happen.
Won the Emmy in 2013 for "Behind the Candelabra" and was one of the leading contenders last year for Season 1 of the Netflix show (losing out to Bill Hader for "Barry"). With Hader out this year, can they perform a makeup?
Not this year, and not considering the nomination tally the show ended up pulling in by the end.
