    People still don’t understand the 50% rule, do they? As already properly explained above, you have to be in under 50% of the episodes, which doesn’t mean under 50% of the overall runtime. So anyone who appeared in less than 3 episodes of this final season is eligible in the guest categories.

    In limited series, you have to be in more than 5% of the show (meaning runtime) to quality for the supporting categories.

    Oh wow it felt so good slotting Alfie Allen into my predictions. It just felt right. I’ll probably take him out in two weeks though because there’s no justice in this world. not unless we make it!

    So what should win? a show nobody care about (Better Call Saul), the one prestige drama that is too dry to connect with the general public (Succession), the one that has been rejected by the Academy in not very subtle way (This Is Us), the one that is incredible mediocre and it gets worse when compare with shows with similar thematic (Ozark), the mediocre and wildly overrated one that has also been rejected by the Academy for its break out season (Killing Eve) or the Empire wanna be that is only worthy in Costume and nothing else (Pose)…the only show that is threat to GoT is Bodyguard and that is completely untested and even that has the feeling of being there done that by the Emmys. Some people can have some issue with GoT because it didn’t fulfill their expectations or didn’t ended the way some fans convinced them-self the story should has come to a close. Everybody can has issues with how it ended but there’s not denying that compare with the competition Game of Thrones is in a league of its own.

    Game of Thrones delivered a season that earned mixed reviews.  There need be no further justification for it losing Outstanding Drama Series in the peak television era.

    GoT producers don’t even need to attend this year’s Emmys, cause they are winning. Period. The show changed TV forever. It’s unbelievably popular around the globe, they’re gonna reward it one last time. It won last year for another mediocre season (not as bad as S8 but still), it’s winning again this year as the competition is simply not there. Abstaining from the criterion of quality, no other show will be popular enough to pull off a win.
    And for another show to win they 99% need to win an acting category as well: Madden is probably winning, but I doubt Bodyguard will come through for the top prize, Succession is struggling acting nominations wise, they never cared for Better Call Saul enough to give it a win in any secondary major categories in the past when it was the best of its category, why would they do it now, Peter Dinklage is a lock (his win further secures GoT’s top prize win), Killing Eve is NOT winning even if Comer and Oh tie for Best Actress, and Ozark wasn’t as good as S1 and it’s not a frontrunner to win directing or writing, Garner’s potential win won’t be enough.

    We usually say that people should not attend a ceremony because they have no chance and thus will not be giving a speech on stage, but you are saying that even the winners should not attend, so who should?

    Didn’t elaborate, true. I meant that the Emmys are already mailed to their homes, so no need to be present at the ceremony. 😛

    Last years’ main ceremony winners really surprised me not because I considered them as out of nowhere but it actually showed that voters pay attention. Such as, lead acting winners in drama and Bill Hader over Donald Glover. Therefore, Game of Thrones might lose this time.

    Succession is struggling acting nominations wise

    How do you know… it hasn’t been tested yet.

    I don’t, what I mean is it doesn’t have strong contenders (or has misplaced contenders), I think Brian Cox will get in due to being past Emmy winner but as of supporting actor I’m not sure. Either way it’s winning neither probably.

    Gach, I cannot imagine going to bat for that shitty show. Just say you enjoy watching dragons blow stuff up and move on…

    I’m not raving about it. I’m just not blind to pretend that the show isn’t winning drama series. It is, I despised this season, but it is winning, whether we like it or not.
    And not everyone has to have your peculiar taste; the show is phenomenal, I didn’t like the past 2 seasons which also happened to be more blockbuster-like and less caring-about-good-writing, and I’ve been very vocal about how much I hated the 2. I really can’t with all these snobs calling the show overall shitty, it’s not. If you’re not a fan of it or/and its genre, don’t cry for attention, move on…

    Your argument is muddled between what should vs what could. You make claims as to why BCS and Succession COULDN’T beat Game of Thrones due to their apparent buzz and subject matter, and that may be true, but that’s doesn’t mean they SHOULDN’T, and they both should.

    Last Oscar season, Bohemian Rhapsody had more buzz and was a more obvious Best Picture nominee than superior movies like Widows or Eighth Grade. This is why everyone assumed and predicted Bohemian COULD be a BP nominee and not the other two, not that it SHOULD.

    I accidentally deleted my previous comment, and I’m too lazy to try and recall what I wrote, sorry.

    How do you know… it hasn’t been tested yet.

    I don’t, but even if it gets noms, it probably won’t win any. I’m only predicting Brian Cox as of now due to name recognition given that there is at least 1 spot that is up in the air. The rest are either not strong or category-misplaced.

    I’m not raving about it, I despised this season. But I’m not that blind to think it is not winning series yet again.

    I was not referencing your posts, friend; you have indeed made it clear these past few months where your thoughts on quality end and where your predictions begin.

    As a final retort, however, I’ll add: if we can have entire threads dedicated to fans’ love for their favorite shows, I think there is at least an iota of space for those same shows’ critics. Your idea of Game of Thrones criticism may be “in general, the show has been a phenomenon on a cultural level, but, sure, there were a couple of seasons that were not good.” My criticism is just as fair, if more critical of the whole mass. What was it you said? “…don’t cry for attention, move on…”

    I’m glad you read it ’cause I accidentally deleted it as I said above. Of course there has to be room for criticism, but simply popping up and saying “it’s a shitty show” without arguments won’t do the trick. You’re classy and it was painful to write such a response to you, anyways I suspected you weren’t referring to me so maybe I shouldn’t have responded at all to begin with.

    Game of Thrones will probably win because it is the biggest show in the world but The Bodyguard, Better Call Saul and Killing Eve should win because they had far superior seasons this year
