The best actor in a drama series is a prestigious award, and the competition in this category is fierce. Sterling K. Brown, who has previously won the Emmy for best actor for his work on This Is Us, is vying for the award once again. But he’s not the only one nominated from beloved ABC drama This Is Us. Milo Ventimiglia is also competing for the coveted trophy. Meanwhile, Jason Bateman was nominated for the best actor Emmy 2019 for his work on Netflix’s Ozark.

Billy Porter is up for best actor in a drama series for his work on FX's Pose. And of course we can’t forget Kit Harington for Game of Thrones. Jon Snow was once crowned King of the North by his people - now will Kit Harington become the outstanding lead actor in a drama?

Last, but certainly not least, is Bob Odenkirk who has been nominated three times previously for his work as Jimmy McGill on Better Call Saul. Is 2019 finally his year? There are some great actors on this list, but only one can make it to the top of our Emmy winner predictions 2019.
