Who else has a chance? Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister had an amazing season, but even “Game of Thrones” has to fight its way out of the genre pit if it wants more awards love. Dinklage’s previous award could either help or hurt him as well.
Jon Voight (“Ray Donovan”) and Mandy Patinkin (“Homeland”) shouldn’t be ignored either. Both actors have long histories of critical acclaim and strong seasons on their respective shows. Plus, the Emmys love to award movie actors like Voight.
The only real longshot in this particular race would have to be Jim Carter for “Downton Abbey.” While his Mr. Carson is a longtime favorite, this past season wasn’t the best to showcase the actor’s talents.
