Horror icon Robert Englund enters the “Stranger Things” universe and will receive a considerable push from Netflix to land his first Emmy nomination. Returning after a long hiatus, the popular series dropped late in the eligibility window, which could help Englund, especially with TV voters who may have shorter memories.

Tom Pelphrey was one of the most notable Emmy omissions when “Ozark” dominated the Emmys. His Ben Davis has never received a nomination and this is voters’ last chance to reward his smart play. Getting more eyes on him due to his supporting work on “Outer Range”, it would be disappointing to see this character go unrecognized.

With two performances submitted in other acting categories (“Chapelwaite” and “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty”), Adrien Brody’s Josh Aaronson in “Succession” is undoubtedly one of the top contenders of the year, for sure. will stand out. with one or two guest names. But will it be Alexander Skarsgård or Brody?

Colman Domingo has been building on his grand-prize moment for years, and with HBO’s “Euphoria” looking to do better at the Emmys than its inaugural season, his work as Ali could be among the nominations the show receives. He also gets a boost from his work on “Fear the Walking Dead”.

A staple of the beloved NBC drama series as William H. Hill, father of Randall, who gave him up for adoption Ron Cephas Jones competed as a guest star three other times, winning twice. One more for the farewell season isn’t unlikely, but he’ll also have votes for his co-stars Dulé Hill and others.
