A handful of Emmy newbies join two past Oscar winners (Robert DeNiro, Geoffrey Rush) and two past Emmy winners (Sterling K. Brown, Jeffrey Tambor) in three separate but equally tough-to-call lead actor races. Two guys each played dueling brothers (Zach Galifianakis, Ewan McGregor), while Brown and Milo Ventimiglia — This Is Us' lovable son-father duo — will duel against each other in the drama actor race.
Who will come out on top when the Primetime Emmys are doled out on Sept.17 is anyone's guess, but these 15 nominees discuss challenging scenes, misconceptions about their characters and crazy fan interactions, like the time McGregor was mistaken for a porn star.
