    Rhea Seehorn has a really good scene in episode 9, Wiederschen.

    Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, Survivor

    In general Rhea Seehorn doesn’t have that meaty, awards-friendly material that some other contenders have. And to be honest, it doesn’t make me sad because it means that Better Call Saul is not following the easy way with the creation of baity scenes and one-layered characters easy to grasp and understand. Rhea Seehorn’s Kim is an infinitely more complex human being than anyone in GoT or This Is Us; it’s not enough to get an Emmy, maybe not even for an Emmy nomination, but it’s enough for anyone looking for quality television.

    Cersei Lannister CAN’T remain Emmy-less.

    VOTE FOR LENA HEADEY.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    Cersei Lannister will get an Emmy when the show gets rebooted in 2035 and is marketed as the “true adaptation of the book”!

    We don’t want it unless Lena Headey is in it.

    You are essentally highlighting the good writing, not the actress herself. There are plenty of performances like hers that are ignored and justifiably so. A well written character shouldn’t be an excuse to nominate someone. An acting Emmy doesn’t serve that purpose. And are we really pretending BCS hasn’t had its fair share of baity moments? (not as blatant as TIU or Handmaid’s though)

    I completely disagree; maybe I just wasn’t clear enough. I was not talking about “well written” characters; I referred to complexe ones, and complexity comes from both the writers and the actor’s work (and the directing, of course). And there’s no doubt that Rhea Seehorn does an essential job in this regard; she’s put in interesting situations, yes, but just look at her body and at her facial expressions – there’s always an ambiguity to it, something we rarely see on tv. She’s there and she’s not there; she thinks what we expect her to think and probably something else; you get the impression that you know her, but not that you know evrything of her personality. For that, credits to both the writers and the actress.

    GoT does have a problem with vote splitting with their actors so Maisie Williams is in no way the frontrunner (going back to the old thread). Peter Dinklage is the only one thus far to survive the dreaded vote split at last years Emmys and Maisie is no Peter Dinklage. Emmy voters LOVE him. Remember when everyone was so sure that Kit Harington was going to win back in 2016 and that vote split happened with Dinklage so it went to Ben Mendelsohn? Yeah…

    The biggest question is if there is voting spilit between the GOT supporting actresses(note, I said if), who would win supporting actress then? My money is on Watson or Metz from this is us(which ever one is nominated).

    I’m going to wait to see who they nominate.

    Vote splitting occur when two or more actors, directors, etc. have the same or similar preeminence on a show like Lena Heady and Emilia Clarke (in supporting actress), Harrington and Dinklage in 2016, the two male leads from This is Us or The Handmaids Tale ladies last year. When one actor, Director, etc. has a superior performance/episode in contention vote splitting is not a factor, exemples: Ann Dowd, Peter Dinklage, Starling K Brown (twice).

    The Academy could nominate 4 GoT actresses (which i doubt very much) but only Maise Williams is a contender for the win.

    The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.

    I have no idea who’s winning Supporting Actress. If there’s 3 or more GOT actresses then I don’t see one of them winning. I think it’s between Julia Garner and then depending on whenever Shaw and Hawes get nominated I think they could pull off a win

    FYC Oscars- Little Women, Saoirse Ronan, Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson/Florence Pugh

    FYC EMMYS- Schitts Creek, Dead to Me/ THE MORNING SHOW, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Gugu Mbatha Raw, Killing Eve

    Again, Fiona Shaw is NOT winning an Emmy for Killing Eve, ever.

    Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.
