    The Emilia Clarke and Robin Wright clips that started off the video were hard to watch. Both had to work with terrible writing, but Clarke made things worse with overacting, playing for an imaginary auditorium instead of the one man in the room with her. The rest were solid. Jodie Comer, Laura Lineny and Sandra Oh were actually quite engaging and interesting with relatively subtle clips opposite the melodrama of How to Get Away with Murder and This is Us. Viola Davis had the bravest clip.

    Retrospectively, the episode they could have won in almost any other year with is “The Children” from Season 4 (a spectacular rewatch if I do say so myself – not as flashy as BoTB or Mother’s Mercy but narratively really strong and the best thing I think Weiss and Benioff ever wrote)  I literally had to go and check what it lost to and yeah, of course it was Breaking Bad and Ozymandias.

    “The Children” was never winning under the tape system. It probably ranked last in its year under it.

    I have to agree that Laura Linney’s tape is pretty great…but Ozark doesn’t have much support from the Academy. They recognize the show but don’t seem to want to award it. I know someone mentioned this before but I’m also curious as to where the love for Killing Eve’s script came from? I’m having trouble predicting it for writing even though it’s first in the odds just because I don’t think it’s the best script.

    Hoping that they choose these clips for the ceremony: But because they’re actually great clips, it means that they’re not going to choose any of them.

    Oh you and i wish, but no way. It’s network TV, so all scenes with cursing won’t be used – unless they bleep it out or so. Let’s just hope they even use clips

    They definitely have the best clips but submission wise i still think Jodie is much better than Emilia (I haven’t seen Viola). The problem with Jodie here is the moment they chose from the submission. Her monologue is absolutely fantastic.

    Viola would win over Jodie in a cakewalk if this were based on submissions.

    MY GOODNESS, I told you all that Viola was the real deal in that episode!! They chose the proper clip! Clips:

    1. Viola Davis (my God, I love her)
    2. Mandy Moore (I forgot that she had a scene this great in her episode)
    3. Laura Linney
    4. Sandra Oh (this was GREAT)
    5. Jodie Comer (who was fantastic in both)
    6. Emilia Clarke (wrong scene; I hated this one)
    7. Robin Wright

    if we only watch the submissions -clips the winner without any doubt should be Viola Davis, also because it’s the most emotional . However  if we watch all the episodes I think it’s should be Jodie Comer with Viola Davis very close second. But i don’t think they will win

    I’m bumping Viola Davis up under Sandra Oh after seeing that submission. Wow, what a queen. BTW how AMAZING was Billy Porter’s submission? Mind blown.

    Wow, are you really watching all submissions? Isn’t Viola freakin’ phenomenal? I mean, I knew this would he her submission ever since I saw the ep in January, but I didn’t remember her being this great.

    She was fantastic. I was pretty blown away by her tape. She’s always great but WOW. I am watching all of the submissions haha I haven’t seen all of the shows so I want to get a bit of an idea without going with just what I’ve seen. I’m just starting to watch WTSU and it’s amazing.

    Emilia, Viola, and Mandy have the best clips. No idea what the others were thinking.

    I’m home sick – can someone give me a couple of full episodes that they think are just jaw-drop performances and aren’t necessarily representative of YouTubing a few clips? Is Viola’s that good? I have watched all the submission clips

    (Please don’t suggest GoT, Ozark, Killing Eve, Pose as I’ve definitely watched all of those, plus some others)

    The only two full episodes I’ve watched in real time where I’ve just walked away in a state of astoundment were Billy Porter’s (I mean his clip is good, but the entire episode literally made me change my submission on the spot and I think made me a lifelong fan) and Gwendoline Christie’s (which made me bawl and I think is the best GoT submission by a mile, but the clip on the reel isn’t her very best moment)

    You can watch any random episode of HTGAWM and Viola would do the same thing as she does in this clip: yelling and crying. That’s why I don’t consider her clip oustanding or anything. We know she can do that, since it’s all she does in that show and already has an Emmy for that.

    I can’t say I’ve really watched since S2 – so there’s nothing significant about that submission episode?

    My thoughts on the clips (and also why we shouldn’t judge on clips)

    1. Voters aren’t

    2. Out of context

    3. A minute only doesn’t give you the best grasp on things

    However for the point of the exercise

    Emilia: It’s over-wrought and there’s better work in that ep. Do they need to include dialogue? Skip to about 0.30-0.40 in this clip (the first part is just irrelevant Dinklage drinking games) and watch her wordless reactions to the goings on – I always thought that was so fantastic when I watched that – you really got the sense of a profound jealousy

    Robin Wright: I don’t like this clip at all. I like Robin on House of Cards though.

    Viola Davis: Fantastic. Emotional, but appropriately so.

    Jodie Comer: I LIKE this clip. Sorry guys. I like the accent schtick. It is, however, funnier in context and there are better clips for Jodie, so yeah, as a submission it’s weak.

    Sandra Oh: The cut of this clip doesn’t favour Sandra and it does make Jodie look better but in context of the episode I feel like it’s a power moment for Sandra

    Laura Linney: I really like this and I liked it in the episode too.

    Mandy Moore: This is a lovely little emotional moment and I like her general sub. I think she is the darkest of dark horses

    I guess you don’t watch HTGAWM then, because she’s done everything on that show. And sometimes her material is pretty OTT, but that’s not her fault.

    I stand corrected then. I still disagree though because she has episodes where she’s also incredibly subtle – “Wes” is a prime example. But okay, I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree then.
