    Laura Dern was basically a guest in the later half of BLL. On the other hand, Shailene Woodley is lead. I can’t understand how can Dern win over Woodley. Veteran status of Dern might have helped her if she had more screen time.

    I’m sorry, but I really do not understand comments like this. She can win over Woodley because the competition is called ‘Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie’, not ‘Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie with the Most Screen-time’.

    This was a cheap shot. You know how much I despise predictions for the likes of Robert De Niro and Viola Davis, as well as how I talk up how the academy is making trendy choices.

    I know that. I’m not implying that you’re one of those who is predicting Dern solely because she is a veteran.

    But I do think that you, as well as others here on Goldderby, are underestimating Woodley’s ability to steal votes from Dern. It’s not like Woodley gave a performance like Travolta or Schwimmer’s from last year, or even Wiley (for the Handmaid’s) this year where the show carried her to her nomination. Woodley was amazing in Big Little Lies, and as we are seeing in the new system, her age won’t be a detriment in helping her get votes.

    Woodley even received less critical acclaim than Dern. I read your comment, I just think Dern is seen as such an obvious frontrunner due to all the online polls plus her overdue status plus her Goldderby win that she ought to win easily, with Woodley probably placing 2nd. Her age won’t be a detriment, but Dern just having so many other factors going for her will give her an easy win.

    If Woodley had been snubbed, it would have been way more damaging to Dern because it would have shown a lack of passion for BLL by the actors branch. I know I already said that, I’m not sure if you read that comment of mine. The consensus I see has clearly rallied around Laura Dern the same way the consensus rallied around Courtney B. Vance and Sterling K. Brown last year. If you don’t see that, then fine. Just one more category I will get correct then. 😉

    I am afraid Woodley will pull a Kelly Macdonald and win this.

    Again, this is an unfair comparison to make. Vance was up against a polarizing performance from Gooding Jr. Brown was up against Travolta and Schwimmer. The performances of Brown and Vance’s competition from their own shows were criticized by many people. That’s not the case with Woodley, so I don’t see how the consensus has rallied around Dern. Also, I don’t look at Goldderby wins as a litmus test for who is going to win btw. I mean did Tom Hanks win his category? Do we really think Titus will win his?

    You and I both were in the top 24 last year. It’ll be fun to see which one of us gets this one right 😉

    Indeed. I’m still keeping Regina King in 2nd just to be safe. Don’t forget Goldderby TV Award winner Jean Smart lost that same Emmy category too. Anything can happen.

    Do you think I’m crazy for predicting Westworld to get completely shut out on the big night in spite of its 22 nominations and 5 wins so far?

    I still think Woodley does not have the passion to actually win, and that TV Movie/Mini Supporting Actress is strictly between the overdue veteran Laura Dern and the category’s winner for the past 2 years Regina King. If you really want to predict that category correctly you should probably go with one of those 2.

    Before this years Emmy winners are announced this Sunday night, let me remind you that the Emmy-snubbed performances by The Leftovers’ Carrie Coon “The Book of Nora” and Justin Theroux “The Most Powerful Man In The World (and his Identical Twin Brother),” Better Call Saul’s Michael McKean “Chicanery,” Black Mirror: Nosedive’s Bryce Dallas Howard, Veep’s Timothy Simons (pretty much any episode considering what an amazing season he had, although I would go with “Justice”), and Atlanta’s Bryan Tyree Henry “B.A.N.” gave better performances than most of the acting nominees combined. As much fun as these awards are, it is important to not take them too seriously. Just remember, these are the same people who think Modern Family has been one of TVs best comedies and Ty Burrell one of the best performances for the past 8 years in a row. The same people who are still name-checking Michael Kelly and Mandy Patinkin after all these years. The same people who actually think that Homeland was better directed than The Leftovers and Better Call Saul. At the end of the day, it’s just a silly awards show. 🙂

    As much as I preferred Woodley over Dern, I don’t see Woodley winning. In fact, I really can’t see anyone else in this category winning besides Dern. I mean, Michelle Pfeiffer did nothing in The Wizard of Lies, Regina King won for the last two years and this year her show didn’t get into series which is suspicious, Davis has enough Emmys and they’re not going to award her for this, Hoffman was a passion nominee but they also nominated Davis so the fans of Feud might also go with Davis. Big Little Lies has voters behind it and so I think it’s between Woodley and Dern. Out of these two, the Academy is most likely going for Dern. She’s loved in the industry, she’s overdue, she really hammed it up in this part. Dern’s got this, and I don’t think it’s close.

    Just playing Devils advocate here, Ben Mendelsohn, Tatiana Maslany, and Louie Anderson all won big acting Emmys in spite of only one or two nominations for their series. Even though I am predicting Laura Dern and sticking with her no matter what, another upset by Regina King is still not out of the realm of possibility, even with her series snubbed, considering how much the Emmys just love love LOVE repeat winners.

    No, because I’m predicting it to get completely shut out as well. I’m just not sensing the passion behind this show anymore.

    After it’s just won five Emmys?

    Let’s look at things in perspective here – I’m predicting it to get shut out because I have either Stranger Things or Handmaid’s Tale winning those categories (shows which clearly have a lot more passionate support).

    Two of the categories that Westworld won in, it had virtually no competition – special effects and make-up. I’ll give you its wins for Hairstyling and Sound Mixing as being indicators of broad support, but it pales in comparison to the passion we saw for Stranger Things and Handmaid’s tale.

    It lost editing to Stranger Things (which overcame vote-splitting), it lost for its gorgeous Main Title Design (to Stranger Things no less), despite its setting it even lost for Cinematography, it lost for casting, it lost for Ramin Djawadi’s main title theme music (though in all fairness that might have to do with their bizarre rejection of Djawadi), it lost for its more flashy Sound Editing to Stranger Things. It should have been able to win at least some of these categories.

    I think that it’s best shot is Newton and I think MBB is a major threat to her. I’m predicting Newton though.
