Hugh Laurie of 'House'
Hugh Laurie, "House"
Nomination Status: He'll be nominated
Bottom Line: Hugh Laurie has two Golden Globe wins for "House." He has two SAG wins for "House." Heck, Hugh Laurie won a Teen Choice award for "House." But he hasn't won an Emmy. Maybe this is the year, though, to rectify that oversight. Think back over Laurie/House's season. He had his father's funeral. He dealt with a colleague's suicide. He hallucinated. And, in the end, he had a mental break and checked himself into a facility. That's a lot of terrific acting moments for a man who may be the best actor in primetime. He may end up being the favorite in this category.
