Michael C. Hall

Lead Actor - Drama

Michael C. Hall

Series: “Six Feet Under”

Years on show: 2

Emmy pedigree: First nomination

Episode submitted: “A Private Life”

2001-02 shining moment: The scenes involving Hall and partner Matthew St. Patrick coming to terms with their tumultuous relationship.

Pro: As the backbone of the show, running Fisher & Sons Funeral Home, Hall could walk down the aisle to accept his first Emmy.

Con: Competition from co-star Peter Krause could split the vote and work against both. Such was the case in 1998 when “Homicide’s” Andre Braugher beat two “NYPD Blue” nominees: Dennis Franz and Jimmy Smits.

Quotable: “For the first season, David was a closeted homosexual, middle-son mortician, yet he’s the most traditional and con-servative-minded of all the Fisher children. He’s such a stew of contradiction and conflict.”

Critical viewpoint: “He’s the best part of ‘Six Feet Under.’ It’s a show that’s driven by acting more than writing, which is un-usual. In a lot of ways, he’s the unsung hero. He’s the glue that holds all the plots, all the characters together. … He does a wonder-ful job in that role — and does not get enough credit for keeping the show grounded.” Bill Goodykoontz, the Arizona Republic
