State of the species

It’s hard to believe that Matthew Macfayden is the first and only “Succession” star to win Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his work on the series. The cast is so full of memorable male performances that even Arian Moayed deserves an Emmy for playing Stewy. With Season 4 set to be the last for the hit HBO drama, the biggest question is “will the TV Academy give Macfayden another Emmy, or will Kieran Culkin finally get it this year?” The latter actor was the favorite to win the category for two consecutive seasons and came up short both times, with Macfayden pulling ahead with a scene-stealing turn in the Season 3 finale last spring. The same could happen again, where the writing is so great for Cousin Greg in the series finale that co-star Nicholas Braun, also a two-time nominee, ends up winning an Emmy.

However, there are a few other dramas that voters are sure to watch. “The White Lotus” received surprising nominations in a crowded limited series race last year, so we can expect quite a few of the cast to make it to the slightly less competitive 2023 drama category — especially Oscar and Emmy winner F. Murray Abraham. winner is Michael Imperioli. The ending of “Better Call Saul” gives more incentive to cast Giancarlo Esposito and Jonathan Banks one last time for their iconic “Breaking Bad” characters. And to top it all off, it’s pretty easy to bet on previous winners John Lithgow (“The Old Man”) and Bradley Whitford (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) taking the category, even if public interest towards the latter Hulu show. faded away.
