Six of television's top actors will battle for the title.

Who do you think should win best actor in a drama series at this year's Primetime Emmy Awards?

Six of TV's top actors are vying for the title, including This Is Us stars Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia. The two actors play father and son in NBC's time-hopping show — Brown's Randall is the adopted adult son of Ventimiglia's Jack — but they've never shared a scene together given Jack's death prior to the scenes that are set in the present.

Brown is looking to win his second Emmy following his win in 2016 for best supporting actor in a limited series or a movie for his work as Christopher Darden in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. This is Ventimiglia's first nomination.

Meanwhile, veteran Anthony Hopkins will return to the Emmys with his fifth nomination and second nomination for his work in a drama series for HBO's Westworld. He won his first Emmy, for best actor in a drama or comedy special, in 1976 for playing Bruno Richard Hauptmann in The Lindbergh Kidnapping Case. 

This year marks the third time that Bob Odenkirk has been nominated for his role in AMC's Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul.

And this is the second consecutive year Matthew Rhys has been nominated for best actor in a drama series for his role as Philip Jennings in FX's The Americans. (His partner and co-star Keri Russell also is nominated, for best actress in a drama series.)

Liev Schreiber also is no stranger to the Emmys, as this is his sixth nomination and the third for his role as Ray Donovan in Showtime's series of the same name.

House of Cards star Kevin Spacey is returning to the Emmys with his fifth nomination for playing Frank Underwood.
