    And that’s why I think a van Houten win is an important indicator. If she wins the week before at the Creative Arts awards I will predict Clarke and a GOT actress in supporting (Headey most likely). It will just prove that the show has the amount of support required to completely break through with the performers branch outside of Dinklage. Whatever happens, I highly doubt Harington will win though.

    That screams Samira Wiley last year though. I thought Moss & Strahovski were gonna win then, and we saw what happened!

    Emmy voters must bend the knee to Lena Headey & Emilia Clarke for "Game of Thrones." It's their last chance to award them. Make it happen.

    It’s an entirely different level of competition in the guest categories, we shouldn’t overreact to a Van Houten win.

    I feel like Carice van Houten, who’s been a more outsider to U.S industry playing a divisive character, winning would be more surprising than Wiley’s win though.

    Wiley was series regular on another industry favorite OITNB and just been nominated in the supporting category the previous year.

    It would also mean the acting branch curse outside of Dinklage for the show has been broken. I am not predicting her to win just based on all the reasons I’ve listed but if it were to happen it would be the direct result of the show’s acting branch support and not name-check or sympathy factor like many of the guest wins seem to be the result of.

    I don’t get the hate for KE, it really over performed with nominations, that shows the voters actually watched the show (along with Fleabag). I agree it probably won’t win Directing but it has a good chance at writing.

    It wasn’t as good as season 1, but it was still great.

    I would overreact though, because I’d be so happy for her!!

    I think for supporting actress, Maisie and Lena will get the most votes but they will split the vote. I’m starting to think who would be in third place and given how the nominations went, it could very well be Gwendoline Christie or Sophie Turner who wins.

    Am I the only one who thinks Lange has the guest actress Emmy in the bag lol? Apocalypse wasn’t getting anywhere else, let’s be real, so it didn’t underperform or anything. Rashad had a more internal, understated role which she nailed but I’m not sure it’s flashy enough for them to vote for her, unless they want to give her an overdue prize. And as of Van Houten, the only way she wins is if she coattails.

    I am predicting Jones to win. Handmaid’s will extend its reign in this category; Jones was already nominated last year and has already popped up in S3 (doing nth once again). Look, I don’t want her to win – there are too many deserving contenders in this race – but I will reiterate what I’ve said all season long: Do not underestimate her. That said, I think this is wide open; the only person not in this race is Cox IMO. Even Tyson can win, because don’t forget, Murder has 3 acting nods.

    Are they still interested in giving acting awards to AHS? I guess if it can happen it would be for Lange in guest, but I’m not convinced.

    If she still has nothing to do during the voting period and the next few episodes get a similar reception as the past couple of episodes, I doubt Jones will be able to pull off a win (though, I guess they can hate taste and give it to her still). Tyson will win next year for the final season, so they’ll probably just keep her waiting till then in terms of being competitive.

    Could The Handmaid’s Tale currently airing season 3 right now help these season 2 nominations when it comes to wins?

    I’m not sure about Jones, I don’t think I’d predict her if she indeed has nothing to do. Bledel and Wiley were both pretty much supporting performances with a lot of good material so I think it’s different with Jones. I think this is really between Van Houten, Lange and Rashad

    Can you imagine how people’s jaws would drop if Robin Wright pulled off a Jon Cryer-style win? I don’t want it to happen but it would be surreal

    Out of curiosity, how would that be a “Jon Cryer-style win”?

    It’s not just any actor, it’s Jessica Lange, and it’s not just any role, it’s Emmy-winning Constance Langdon. Otherwise we wouldn’t be having this conversation at all.
