My Future Baby Daddy is a Front Runner for Emmy Nomination

Alexander Skarsgard 11/08 Pictures, Images and Photos Kenneth Branagh won the Emmy for lead actor in a TV movie/mini seven years ago for starring in "Conspiracy" as Reinhard Heydrich, a Nazi official responsible for killing Jews during World War II. Now he competes for portraying a disheveled, brooding British police detective in "Wallander," which won all five of its British Academy of Film and Television Arts TV nominations, including for best drama series. But, curiously, Branagh wasn't nommed for acting. Still, he has a good shot a reaping a bid at the Emmys because they'll be determined by an outright popular vote of the TV academy's acting branch. If nominated, Branagh could even win, since he has (spoiler alert!) a hokey crying scene near the end of this expanded series episode (parading as a TV movie) with his character's daughter.

Playing real-life roles is the key to winning here, as it is at most showbiz awards. That's paid off for eight of the last 10 victors in this category. Standout examples this year include Brendan Gleeson as Winston Churchill in "Into the Storm" and Kevin Bacon in "Taking Chance" as a Marine officer who escorted the body of a slain soldier from Iraq to his hometown in Wyoming. Alexander Skarsgard shines as an Army sergeant fighting in the 1993 2003 Iraq war in "Generation Kill."
