Emmys 2016: Supporting Actor in a Drama — Our 7 Dream Nominees!

A sadist. A supervillain. A soul-scarred creature.

These were just a few of the supporting TV characters that captured our imaginations over the past year. And while we might not necessarily want ’em right at our dining room tables, we couldn’t wait to have them in our living rooms on a weekly basis.

And now, we want ’em at the 2016 Emmys.

Yep, as part of our Dream Emmy Nominations initiative, we’ve turned our attention to the race for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Remarkably, none of the six gents who made the actual Emmy cut in 2015 made our list. (See how funky-fresh we are at TVLine?)

For the record, 2016 Emmy nominations will be made from June 13-27, and announced July 14. The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, is slated to air Sunday, Sept. 18 on ABC.
