    I predict Dinklage, but if I were voting I’d vote for Coster-Waldau. I’d also be happy with Esposito.

    Returning back to “was GoT fan service in S8?” – yes and no. Arya and Gendry potentially showed a bit of character development/growing up and gave Williams a bit of material that wasn’t “I’m going to slice your neck”, though I’d argue it possibly didn’t land, possibly because of so many people seeing her still as a little girl.  Cleganebowl was always going to happen, so yes. I’d probably have preferred to see more of Maisie Williams with Rory McCann than the separate storylines, but I don’t write this stuff.

    Jon riding a dragon? It’s a dragon show. With dragons. If he can’t ride a dragon in a dragon show I’m not sure where he can ride a dragon. I am a fan of not taking this stuff too seriously.

    If the Brienne/Jaime thing was fan service I dare say Nikolaj Coster-Waldau wouldn’t have spent a good month getting accosted in airports and on social media the minute after Gwendoline Christie started crying at him in the same episode they got together.  (which is, for the record, terrifyingly ridiculous). If that knighting scene was fan service, fuck it. It’s absolutely flawlessly shot, acted, written, and directed in my opinion.

    In summary: 50/50 fan service. Probably worked for Christie and Harington and not for Coster-Waldau and Williams. And sometimes fan service I’m okay with. Like dragon riding in a dragon show.

    No one is beating Dinklage and if someone does, it’ll be from another show.

    My overall feelings on Season 8 of GoT is that as I get further away I feel differently. It was a lot, it was messy, there was a lot to tie up and it was a messy conclusion. I’ve rewatched it several times.

    Several months after:

    Best writing: episode 2, 5, 1, 4, 6, 3

    Best direction: episode 5, 3, 2, 1, 6, 4

    Harington as Lead Actor: Had a harder job to do than people give him credit for. Does well in his nominated episode.

    Clarke as Lead Actress: Wow what a storyline to be given. Some absolutely epic moments (that speech in episode 6 is a standout. She’s terrifying). Am on par with her and Jodie Comer and her bonkers Villanelle performance on my favourite.

    Supporting Actor performances:

    Dinklage – He is, as per normal, excellent. He is in the script too much and I think he has moments that don’t land and I rarely say that of Dinklage. But he continues to have the gravitas and capacity to carry off that performance beautifully. He’ll win.

    Coster Waldau – About a hundred times more understated than Dinklage but very good. Episode  2 and 4 in particular he’s great. He has brief, tiny moments I watch and go “wow” as opposed to big, demonstrative ones.

    Allen – Beautiful ending. He doesn’t have a lot of screentime, but it’s basically flawless. I’m really happy he got nominated

    Guest Actress

    Van Houten – Great, interesting episode, mysterious to the end, delivered wonderfully.

    Supporting Actress

    Headey – I mean we’ve all said it. Extremely limited screen time but a wonderful performance when she is on screen. Such a good actress.

    Williams – an enjoyable season to watch her. Feels very action movie. I’m not sure if action heroes win Emmy Awards (maybe they should) but she’s really great to follow. Her physicality in those scenes is very impressive. She’s really great in scenes with Harington.

    Christie – I think she was just exceptional this season. I don’t find myself a particularly emotional person in GoT (OK, maybe when they burnt Shireen. God damn) but I think she made me cry at least three times in six episodes.

    Turner – she sometimes reminds me of a stalwart older actress in this role – very serviceable and reliable and consistent in her performance. I don’t think she had any standout wow moments that would mean she could win, though.

    Peter Dinklage is a lock, but Nikolaj-Coster Waldau and Jonathon Banks are more deserving.

    I will say one of the things Coster-Waldau has to his benefit is that unlike Dinklage – who floats around from character to character this season to a dizzying amount – Coster-Waldau has a much more focused season (he really only has scenes with a few actors) and might benefit from people who liked his work with both Headey or Christie (both of whom he has a long history on screen with) – plus Allen is there to vote split. Both Banks and Esposito are very deserving. Banks has got to win one of these years.

    Best Supporting Actor Drama is the most locked category besides Best Drama Series and Best Comedy Actor. There’s really no one beating Dinklage. Remember last year when everyone was predicting David Harbour and in 2015 when everyone predicted Jonathan Banks? Two much more deserving winners. It’s almost embarrassing that Dinklage is about to beat Aaron Paul’s record.

    So: here’s a question for you all

    What would be your big “hang on, SERIOUSLY?” shocks of the night in the drama category? (I’m happy to come back and see if any of these came to fruition…)

    for me:

    GoT losing best Drama

    Dinklage not winning Best Supporting Actor to literally anybody.

    Turner winning Best Supporting Actress out of nowhere or Christie actually pulling off the popular but unlikely “not even submitted” four way vote split.

    Kelly WINNING Best Supporting Actor

    Moore and Ventimiglia winning Best Actor and Actress in an unexpected This Is Us sweep

    The Bodyguard randomly winning writing.

    ***Wouldn’t be unhappy with all these. Just surprised***

    Definitely, Peter Dinklage. He had amazing material to work with this year, and he, of course, knocked it out of the park. My favorite scenes of his are him and Varys talking about loyalty, his plea to Cersei, discovering Cersei and Jaime’s bodies, and his conversation with Jon in his cell.

    I remember thinking that since she had a lot to do in S7 Lena will have even bigger role in S8  lol

    But still I think she did more this year than Alfie.

    For Peter this was his best season in the second part of the show. They gave him material to show all his talent and he really did.

    I really enjoyed the scenes with Varys (Conleth Hill). As an aside I also think Conleth had a great season

    Well he lost in 2016. I’m not saying it will happen this year but the possibility is out there.

    Stranger Things lost to The Handmaid’s Tale, The Handmaid’s Tale lost to Game of Thrones, La La Land lost to Moonlight, Roma lost to Green Book. Is it possible that the (undeserving) final season of Game of Thrones loses it to Killing Eve? It would be Killing Eve because only that has nominations in key categories. Succession’s absence in acting categories hesitate me to predict it, but a win this year would open the door for future seasons to win or at least to secure its spot for far better seasons.
