    Ugh Michelle Fairley was so robbed of an Emmy.

    One of the worst snubs ever. Still not over it.

    Well Harington was atrocious and Clarke was servicable at best (except season 8), but the rest of GoT Ensemble is aces. EDIT: Forgot about Turner, she also was quite mediocre. Westworld has Hopkins, Newton, Wood, Wright and Harris, but other than that I don’t care as far as acting is concerned.

    Harington and Clarke get too much hate. I think they’re both great. Harington’s work in season 8 was definitely some of his weakest, but I think he did what he could. Like Clarke, his character was ruined, but unlike her, it didn’t give him an opportunity to show off his acting chops. In fact, it did quite the opposite. When he had the material (like in season 6), I thought he was great.

    For me, the weakest main cast member was Turner. I don’t have anything against her performance, I think it’s more to do with Sansa not being a particularly great role. She was at her best in season 6, which was the first time in a long time that her material didn’t consist of going “woe is me”. Unfortunately, the writing for Sansa really started to take a nosedive in the following seasons.

    Since I’m mentioning Harington and Turner’s work in season 6, I think it’s worth pointing out what I’ve always found to be a very impressive moment from both of them, with that being when they reunited. The actors had never worked with each other before, but in a moment with no dialogue, they both really sold the emotions to make it seem like they knew each other their whole lives.

    To me the guy playing Joffrey should have been nominated for S2 or 3 and in Guest for S4.

    Idk Clarke always varied between servicable at best to cringeworthy at worst to me, except season 8 which is the only one when she finally gives a good performance.

    And okay, I went overboard with critisism of Harington lol. But he still never gave an interesting performance in GoT and the fact that he has Emmy noms at all is laughable.

    Jack Gleeson was an absolute delight. So wonderfully evil. I wouldn’t have nominated him for  season 2 and 3 (I’d have put Dance [and the actually nominated Dinklage] ahead of him for those two, and put Coster-Waldau ahead of everyone for season 3). But in Guest for season 4, definitely. HBO stupidly didn’t submit him there. I believe they actually submitted him in supporting that year. However since Pascal got snubbed in Guest that year, Gleeson likely wouldn’t have made the cut anyway.

    I’d have given the show way more acting wins than they actually got. If I remember correctly I’d have rewarded Bean, Dinklage, and Dance (In Guest where he stupidly wasn’t submitted) for season 1, Coster-Waldau for season 3, Pascal for season 4, Headey for season 5, Harington, Headey, and McCann (in Guest where he stupidly wasn’t submitted) for season 6, Coster-Waldau, Christie, and van Houten for season 8, and Diana Rigg possibly every single year she was Guest eligible.

    That was before the current rules in Guest. He wasn’t eligible to be submitted as Guest at the time.

    Under today’s rules he would be eligible, but Pascal would be forced into Supporting.

    I’ll still defend Harington. I think he had some fantastic moments on the show.



    This scene never fails to send chills down my spine. It’s easy to say Battle of the Bastards was just a director showcase, but I believe if his perfomance didn’t work, then the episode wouldn’t have worked.

    He should’ve won.

    Michael McKean should’ve won.

    Agreed.

    Maggie Smith deserved every Emmy she won over Lena Heady. I’d take back Uzo’s and give it to Heady, because Anna Gunn’s Emmys are untouchable.

    Agreed.

    Harington was my number 1 vote that year, but McKean was definitely my runner up.

    Emilia Clarke always took up space when nominated except for last year. I watched her submissions and went – Is this a mistake?

    People thinking Harrington should win or be nominated for an award for anything he did during his game of thrones tenure especially seeing the competition he was up against are truly wild.

    To me Bryan Cranston deserved an Emmy for every season of Breaking Bad. He lost twice to Damian Lewis and Jeff Daniels.

    Which one do you think he lost rightfully?
