Unlike the women, this is an easy choice. Dinklage. Not only the male MVP, but the MVP of the whole show, period. With the exception of Season 3 (which I still would’ve given him a nomination for), I would give Dinklage an Emmy for each of the other 3 seasons. By far, he’s been the best fit of character and actor on GoT. Although most of the other men have been great too (Bean for Season 1, Allen for Season 2, Coster-Waldau for Season 3, and Dance for Season 4).
Well Dinklage wins this in a landslide obviously, but I’d be interested in knowing who everyone’s second choice would be.
Mine would be close between Charles Dance and Alfie Allen, I think I’d go with Dance ultimately. I think Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is way overrated on tese forums. He’s fine, but the only reason people talk him up for season 3 is because the material is so good, I didn’t think his performance really elevated with.
I thought that it would be an easy vote for Peter Dinklage when I saw the title of this thread, but then I was reminded of Sean Bean!
