This 8-year trend points to a Billy Porter or Kit Harington Best Drama Actor Emmy win
Three’s a trend and eight’s a pattern. Since 2011, the winners of the Best Drama Actor Emmy have hailed from a first-year show or a final-year show. If you believe that will continue this year, then only two nominees fit that bill: Billy Porter (“Pose”) and Kit Harington (“Game of Thrones”).

Porter is competing for the inaugural season of “Pose,” while Harington, of course, is up for the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones,” which shattered the all-time single-year drama record with 32 nominations on Tuesday. Their rivals are all in the middle of their shows’ respective runs: Jason Bateman is contending with Season 2 of “Ozark”; Bob Odenkirk, Season 4 of “Better Call Saul”; and Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia are back for Season 3 of “This Is Us.”
