Emmy Statue

With the release of the new series Game of Thrones and with perennial winners like Breaking Bad not being eligible this year, many people are already predicting great success for this series.

The series is expected to have a great showing in the Drama series bid where it will contend against another strong powerhouse contender in True Blood. Over at Gold Derby, they debate which other actors from this series would have a chance at winning an individual Emmy.

We will just focus on Sean Bean, who plays one of the lead characters, Eddard Stark. While Sean Bean does a great job as his character and comes off as extremely sympathetic, he has a lot of tough competition. In the Drama Best Actor race, he is also up against - Jon Hamm who plays Don Draper on the series Mad Men, Michael C. Hall from Dexter, Steve Buscemi from Boardwalk Empire, and Timothy Olyphant from the FX Series Justified.

Who do you think deserves to win in this category? And what sets their role out from the others?
