Kyle Chandler of 'Friday Night Lights'

Kyle Chandler of 'Friday Night Lights'

Nomination Status: This probably won't be his year either.

In His Favor: For years, we've always advocated on the behalf of Kyle Chandler, our favorite television patriarch and authority figure. For years, we've been stymied. This year won't be any different. Chandler was at his best in the early going of this "Friday Night Lights" season, as he realized the unique challenges of his new job and faced the realities of starting over at the bottom again. In the last third of the season, Chandler gracefully underplayed and allowed Connie Britton to take the splotlight. That's why they're TV's best couple.

Working Against Him: The argument for Kyle Chandler is a little thinner this season. It's not that he hit any false notes, but if we were to do a Sepinwall-esque Top 6 based on our own preferences, it's possible Chandler might not make that Top 6. Heck, he'd even have made our Top 6 in That Season That Never Happened (Season 2). It's not his fault. He's just got more competition this year.

We disagree! This IS his year to be nominated.

  1. This is practically an's articles like these that CAUSE the snubs that Kyle gets (very painfully for all his fans and I'm sure for him)year after year. Give the man his deserved Emmy already!
