    Who from “Game of Thrones” should go lead for the final two seasons? Should anyone? Or does the entire cast all belong in supporting? Let us know!

    Don’t we discuss this every year?

    Why mess with a strategy that is clearly working? No one will ever get enough screentime to justify a lead placement.

    I agree , no one deserves to go lead , they dont have the screen time like Space, Odenkirk or Rhys have

    It seems like Jon and Dany will become even more of a central focus in the final season, but if the structure remains the same I cant see either having enough material to compete in Lead.

    …I’m still mad at HBO for submitting Thandie Newton in lead for Westworld (another large ensemble show) when she could win supporting.

    They probably won’t rock the boat yet, but depending on how many bodies stack up over the course of the next season, there’s a chance that by default someone (an obvious main) could go lead in the final season. We no longer need to split time between umpteenth locations and have half an episode in idk BFE (Buttfuck Essos) taking time away from other characters and now-already-minor characters like Brienne, Davos and Theon are getting less and less to do. Though I can’t see them pulling another massive, supporting-character-killing explosion again (though that in itself was pretty damn useful).

    If it does happen, though, I can’t see it happening next season. There are still way too many characters and plot points to wrap up before the ice zombies descend.

    Game of Thrones is not even eligible this season, so it is kinda unnecessary to open the thread to have this discussion for the 100th time.

    I would like to see it happen just to open up more spaces for them in supporting categories, but there is no true lead and I don’t think that will change so they’ll probably stick with supporting.

    I have been saying this for ages. Headey, Harington and Clarke need to go lead, that would let Williams, Turner, Van Houten, Dinklage and Coster-Waldau to fill up the spots in supporting. It could potentially beat the West Wing for most nominations for acting from a series in a single year, if there would be enough guest actors as well. It could then presumably beat NYPD Blue for most nominations for a drama series in a single year. It will most likely beat Breaking Bad for most wins for a drama series’ final season. Equal the record of most Drama Series wins (4). It will probably overtake SNL at one point for most wins by a series. It would beat its own record for most wins for a single episode. Could potentially beat the record for most acting wins for a drama series (9). And finally beat its own record of most wins for a single season.

    No – Emilia Clarke does not even deserve her Supporting Actress nominations. The show is very popular and if Clarke goes Lead, then she would take a deserving spot from someone else.

    TBH, she isn’t that good. She can have some impactful moments, and then have a cringe performance in another episode. I honestly don’t get why she gets nominated all the time. Headey is stunning, but the extra GoT nom from Clarke always causes vote-splitting and is the only reason Headey hasn’t been able to win thus far. If Headey were to win in lead, I would forgive the overrated Clarke noms.

    I think Emilia Clarke does the best she can with the writing handed to her. She could be much better if she was written better. It honestly does seem like her and Harrington are the leads at this point so I wouldn’t mind it, but HBO won’t do it. For some reason HBO really cares about category fraud lol.
