Nominees: Steve Buscemi, "Boardwalk Empire"; Kevin Chandler, "Friday Night Lights"; Michael C. Hall, "Dexter"; Jon Hamm, "Mad Men"; Hugh Laurie, "House"; Timothy Olyphant, "Justified"
Who will win: Hamm's time is now. This is his fourth straight nomination without a win, and his episode submission ("The Suitcase," one of the finest "Mad Men" episodes ever, which Elisabeth Moss also submitted) should finally make Don Draper a winner.
Who should win: If Hamm doesn't score a win this year, what does the guy need to do?
