Winner: Kit Harington In our wildest TV fantasy, a.k.a. Game of Combs, the Jon Snow actor reigns supreme – which is why his lustrous locks have their own contract in real life. That’s correct: Harington says he’s not allowed to cut his hair while he’s starring on Game of Thrones, the HBO fan favorite leading the Emmys pack with 19 nods.
Winner: Matthew McConaughey Here are your clues, Detective Rust Cohle: Pearly whites, flawless jawline, dreamy eyes. Lucky for us, you don’t have to be a detective to solve this one, so we’re handing the honor to the True Detective lead actor .
Winner: Jon Hamm We’ll start with the bad news: The Mad Men has 12 nominations, but no Emmy victories to his name. The good news: Win or lose, we get to stare at Hamm in his Don Draper best no matter what.
Winner: Aaron Paul We can’t condone what the Breaking Bad nominee was cooking up on the AMC show. But we can support that mischievous smile. And his flair for rocking exactly the right amount of facial hair. And … would you like us to go on?
Winner: Matt McGorry Science (ahem, something like that) tells us that everyone loves a man in uniform, which makes Orange Is the New Black’s 12 nominations as surprising as an inmate-guard affair (spoiler alert). We’re just glad stealing hearts isn’t actually a crime because Officer Bennett would be locked away for life, obviously.
Winner: Benedict Cumberbatch The Sherlock Holmes nominee’s hotness is well-documented on Tumblr, where his self-proclaimed “Cumberbitches” pay tribute to the British hunk with cyberspace’s most valuable currency. So, basically, the entire Internet is going to win should the actor take home an Emmy.
Winner: Jim Parsons The Big Bang Theory nominee makes quantum physics look moderately enjoyable, thanks to his puppy eyes and guy-next-door charm that always prevails over his in-your-face arrogance. Honestly, we’d let him tutor us any day, any time and in anything but quantum physics.
Winner: Adam Driver For what he lacks in Sex and the City-grade pickup lines, Driver makes up for with the kind of mysterious allure you’d expect from a Brooklyn hipster artist type. The Girls nominee’s on-screen love life is as complicated as the romances that once played out on the former HBO hit – but with an edge that you just can’t sip from a cosmo.
Winner: Matt Bomer The The Normal Heart nominee could take down his competition with his piercing baby blues alone – although his dramatic turn in the HBO film proves he’s more than just a nice face. A really, really nice face.
