I would predict 4 Handmaids supporting actresses beforehand 4 GoT supporting actresses. And keep in mind MBB and Newton will most likely stay as well.September 19, 2017 at 3:52 pm #1202218693

UNLESS MBB goes Guest. I think Samira Wiley wouldn’t have been nominated if Game of Thrones was up this year. Don’t forget that Yvonne Strahovski also played a fan favorite THT character and was snubbed. I think last year GoT failing to win any of its six acting nods (“vote-splitting” be damned) proved more than ever that the Emmys love to nominate the shows actors, but they aren’t passionate enough to give them the win. The opposite seems to be true for The Handmaid’s Tale’s cast, with only 4 cast members making the cut (in 3 categories like Game of Thrones) and 3 actually winning. IF you’re smart, you will predict Thrones to clean up with acting nominations but predict Handmaid’s to clean up with acting wins. 😉September 19, 2017 at 5:09 pm #1202218716
I can’t say it’s really “opposite” given that it’s 4 acting nominees vs. 6 for a show that was in its 6th season and had built up love for its actors in that time.September 19, 2017 at 8:28 pm #1202218849
Do we think McKinnon will win again next year? I’m particularly interested in seeing how Comedy Supporting Actress shapes out as it has the most open lots (three) of any category next year.
1. Kate McKinnon
2. Leslie Jones
3. Judith Light
4. Jessica Walter
5. Megan Mullally
6. Gaby HoffmanSeptember 19, 2017 at 8:43 pm #1202218872

Good point. Game of Thrones only got Peter Dinklage in for its first, who won.
I think THT actually has the most acting nominees in its first season for a Drama Series that started this century. Compared also to Lost, 24, Mad Men, Homeland, Breaking Bad.September 19, 2017 at 8:49 pm #1202218876
This is Us has more.September 19, 2017 at 9:02 pm #1202218887
If Master of None, Atlanta, UKS, and Veep all miss eligibility, there is a major shakeup coming in Comedy. From the reviews it looks like Transparent may be out for good too. I’m thinking Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Will & Grace all return. Black-ish, Silicon Valley, and Modern Family all make it back. That leaves one slot left for a new show.September 19, 2017 at 10:55 pm #1202218932
Most acting nominations for the first season of a show that premiered this century and won Outstanding Drama Series at some point over the course of its run? Better contact Guinness World Records.September 20, 2017 at 2:53 am #1202219059
Can Laura Liney get in Drama Supporting Actress? She’s the soul of Ozark imo. And has some really good scenes especially in the first episodes.September 20, 2017 at 6:05 am #1202219127
I hope Speechless gets a sophomore surge, better ratings, and then replaces either Blackish or Modern Family as ABC’s token family comedy nominee. Speechless is just do smartly written and hilarious while MF and blackish have been getting stale.September 20, 2017 at 8:00 am #1202219241

I didn’t say it was an omgrecord, and was just responding to someone’s previous comment about GoT’s cast noms, but let out that rage at Handmaid beating your inferior faves I guess.
