HUGE category and HUGE win for Bryan Cranston — his first win for the show. There were many in the crowd crossing their fingers for Kevin Spacey, but I have a feeling he'll get another shot at this award. 

The heavy-hitting nominee list was made up of: 

Liev Schreiber, Ray Donovan
Michael Sheen, Masters of Sex
Kevin Spacey, House of Cards
James Spader, The Blacklist

Last year the award went to Damien Lewis who didn’t even make this year’s shortlist.
