In his latest Nelson Ratings at TV Guide Canda Nelson Branco is already handicapping the 2009 Emmy Awards. Here are his picks for Lead Actor front runner.
Darnell Williams (Jesse, All My Children)
Michael E. Knight (Tad, AMC)
Jon Hensley (Holden, As The World Turns)
Trevor St. John (Todd, One Life to Live)
Eric Braeden (Victor, Y&R)
Wild cards: Y&R’s Ted Shackelford (Jeffrey) deserves to be in this category since he was a lead actor for the majority of the year, but there’s no way Peter Bergman (Jack) will allow that. Also, Bob Woods (Bo/Asa) may break through this year, thanks to the 1968 storyline on OLTL.
