Michael Pitt

Michael Pitt, “Boardwalk Empire” (Supporting Actor, Drama)

Unfortunately, like Esposito, he won’t get any more tries at this, so this is the year to recognize Pitt for his mesmerizing work as hotheaded young gangster Jimmy Darmody. And conveniently, Season 2 of “Empire” featured some of his best work, including his haunting meltdown after the death of his wife in the instant-classic episode “Under God’s Power She Flourishes.” Despite all the acclaim it gets, “Empire” somehow doesn’t get mentioned as one of TV’s best shows, but it should be -- and Pitt deserves an Emmy nod to drive that point home.
