Emmys 2022: Lead Actor in a Limited Series — Our Dream Nominees!

Emmy Nominees 2022

Just last month, Michael Keaton — coming off of SAG and Golden Globe wins for his work in Hulu’s harrowing Dopesick — seemed like an early lock to add an Emmy to his kudos haul. But a funny thing happened over the past few weeks: The competition stiffened. Considerably.

Among the A-listers jumping into the Limited Series fray at the 11th hour: Paul Bettany (A Very British Scandal), Andrew Garfield (Under the Banner of Heaven), Colin Firth (The Staircase) and Samuel L. Jackson (The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey), to name just four.

By all accounts, Keaton remains the frontrunner. But given the last-minute surge of contenders, he is no longer a slam dunk.

Scroll through the list below to review all of our Dream Nominees (remember, these aren’t predictions; they’re wish lists) and then tell us if our picks warrant a “Hell, yes!,” “Um, no” or “How could you leave off so-and-so?!”

For the record, 2022 Emmy nominations will be voted on from June 16-27, and unveiled on July 12. The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony is scheduled to air on Monday, Sept. 12 on NBC.
