➻ SHOULD WIN: Al Pacino as Phil Spector, Phil Spector (HBO)
Says Goodman: I could chicken out and say it will go to an actor playing an outsized character on HBO (Damon, Douglas, Pacino), but I like Pacino's bizarreness as Spector.

➻ John Benjamin Hickey as Sean Tolkey, The Big C: Hereafter (Showtime)
➻ SHOULD WIN: Peter Mullan as Matt, Top of the Lake (Sundance Channel)
