Matt Bomer is probably going to win the Emmy for his work in The Normal Heart. The bigger question is, will any of his castmates also get nominated? That includes Joe Mantello, Jim Parsons, Alfred Molina, and Taylor Kitsch. Martin Freeman will probably get nominated for Sherlock.
The second grab bag of actors includes John Goodman for Dancing On The Edge, Colin Hanks for Fargo, Blair Underwood for The Trip To Bountiful, and the entire American Horror Story: Coven supporting cast, including Denis O’Hare, Evan Peters, and Danny Huston.
Also in the running, Frank Langella for Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight, Oliver Platt and Keith Carradine for Fargo, Christian Borle for The Sound Of Music, and Bill Hader and Jon Hamm for Clear History.
I think Emmy will shower love on The Normal Heart with Bomer, Mantello, and Parsons all getting nominated, with Freeman, Goodman, and Hanks. AHS will get made up for in the Supporting Actress category.
