If it’s a question of who should win, look no further than Bryan Cranston as Walter White in “Breaking Bad.” Undoubtedly one of the greatest performances in television history, Cranston is still keeping his captivated audience at the edge of their seats. With three Emmys already under his belt, however, the momentum from last season of “Breaking Bad” probably won’t be enough to give Cranston another, no matter how deserving. In terms of which actor has the highest chance of winning, it’s a tie between Jon Hamm as Don Draper in “Mad Men,” and Kevin Spacey as Francis Underwood in “House of Cards.” Hamm has been nominated every year since 2008, without a win, but with “Mad Men” coming up on its final season, the voters might show some pity. This category, however, might lean in Spacey’s favor simply because the Emmy voters are suckers for well-renowned film actors.
