This is the hardest one of them all.
Over the past few days, we've been offering suggestions for the 2014 Emmy Awards, from Lead Actress in a Drama to Lead Actor in a Comedy.
And now we've arrived at Lead Actor in a Drama, a category that is nearly sure to pit The Man Who Knocks against The Man Who Believes Time is a Flat Circle, among other talented leading men.
Who will take home the hardware on August 25? We could take a couple guesses (and we will on a later date!).
But, in anticipation of the July 10 nomination announcement, we'd prefer for now to just rundown a list of six actors we hope are at least in contention:
Bryan Cranston has to be the front-runner. This is the hardest field to call, but we may never see a character like Walter White in the history of television.
Due to his amazing portrayal of Rust Cohle on True Detective, Matthew McConaughey could be halfway to an EGOT.
Incredibly, Jon Hamm has never won an Emmy for his portrayal of Don Draper. That may not change this year, but he clearly deserves a nomination.
Michael Sheen may suffer in some voters' eyes because he plays an emotionally stunted character. But he does so extremely well on Masters of Sex.

Matthew Rhys is simply mesmerizing on The Americans. We'd love to see him pull off a major upset in this category.
Hugh Dancy plays an intelligent, captivating character on Hannibal... who is also miserable and meticulous and fascinating to watch.
