Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series

To win this award, an actor must give a performance that is not only excellent but also consistent throughout the season. 

They must also be able to convincingly portray their character's emotional journey, whether it be joy, sorrow, fear, or anger. 

The Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series Emmy is one of the most prestigious awards an actor can receive, and it is a testament to their skill as a performer.

Jeremy Strong has one Primetime Emmy in the bag winning this category in 2020 for Succession. His cast-mate Brian Cox heads the betting this time, with Lee Jung-jae from Squid Game also in the running.
