    Oh yes she does if she wants to beat Sandra Oh! Come on.

    Come on what?! People were talking about the fact that certain actors have to campaign to get their faces out there because they may not be popular or well known. I was speaking specifically about her lack of a need to campaign strictly on the basis of popularity in relation to the other GoT nominees because she’s the most popular castmate (and no, Peter Dinklage isn’t included in this because I know he’s on a whole other level as far as the emmys are concerned). My comment had absolutely nothing to do with her need to campaign based on her chances in her own category (I know Sandra is a threat). What I said was solely based on her not needing to put herself out there as much as her co-stars because out of all the GoT stars she gets the most attention.

    But like I said, a few interviews definitely wouldn’t hurt.

    My office gets the Hollywood Reporter delivered, and HBO took out a full page for the back cover (I would insert a picture if I knew how) touting the 32 nominations for Game of Thrones, a line to consider the show in Drama series, and the entries for the below actors: Lead Actress Emilia Clarke Supporting Actor Peter Dinklage Supporting Actress Lena Headey Supporting Actress Maisie Williams Guest Actress Carice Van Houten In that order. Entries also include a photo, and a quote. No mention of Kit Harrington, Nickolaj Coster Waldau, Sophie Turner, or Gwendoline Christie, or Alfie Allen. Noteworthy that Kit Harrington doesn’t even have anyone else from GoT in his category, but they still don’t even bother to include him, and in supporting actress they didn’t just pick one person like they did in supporting actor. Won’t speculate too much about this, but it seems they’ve decided who they’re going to put their weight behind, and that even they can’t mke up their minds between Williams and Headey.

    Looks like they’re backing the right people. And it makes sense that they’re not backing Kit (I wouldn’t either). I’m still shocked he got the nomination.

    Guys i know we are only in August but i’m really shocked that Succession is dead last in the predictions for directing. If i were you i would start putting it, at least, in 2nd place. I know that all of us here think that Direction is The Long Night to lose, including myself, but i don’t know why i have this feeling we will witness a vote-split between the three GOT episodes and Adam McKay will win for Succession. He won DGA and we know that Emmys love when movie directors and stars move to the TV side. Summing up i still have The Long Night in first but i have Succession in 2nd just in case we have another surprise, and i think you guys should do the same.

    I actually watched all 6 Supporting ACTRESS tapes today. The category is giving me headaches. While people are stanning for the same 2-4 shows and 3-5 names here, some of us are doing the heavy lifting around here….educating myself on who lives up to the hype…who would be a terrible winner…and who truly deserves to win.

    Just yesterday after spending a buck 99 for the episode Holly of THT, I exclusively broke that potential guest actress winner Cherry Jones, was in 2 minutes and 20 seconds of her ORPHANED episode. She would make a terrible winner. And not nearly enough attention gets paid to what these nominees are actually nominated for.

    So I watched all 6 Supporting Actress tapes tonight. I did so because I watched GOT and Killing Eve when they aired and forgot some of the tapes.

    First all, like Cherry Jones, Fiona Shaw is dangerously close to pulling off a terrible win. Shaw is in like 5 minutes of the episode she considered the best work she did this season. Her episode was like every appearance, amusing scenes, she captures your attention, impeccable wardrobe, but there’s no backstory or any weight to the role. She’s like a comic cool relief cameo. She did get off a funny line about moisturizer.

    If the GOT ladies do split, Julia Garner would make for a more worthy winner. She does have a couple of really good scenes. But is she amazing? Eh, not really. There’s something forced with the Ozark accent that I just don’t click with. And I don’t like the show.

    As for the GOT ladies, to put it simple:

    Best episode- Christie Most screen time- Williams Most interesting- Headey Should be happy to be nominated- Turner

    This category is really hard to call. Williams and Garner had the most to do but neither felt like a winner to me or undeniable. They are also both so young and I don’t know if the middle aged-older voters for them. The slum working actor likes to vote for who they have worked with and who they know. It’s obviously not gonna be Turner. Christie is an intriguing possibility. She’s been around and worked in films. Headey has been checked off 5 times for nominations with the voters. Her fans may be gearing up to rally her to win like Claire and Thandie last year. Sadly, Shaw fits the bill to most winners in this category. Respected veteran character actor in a best drama nominee. I’d be happy with Christie, Williams, or Garner and would obviously lean to Headey considering the entire run.

    It really is amazing when I finally sit down and watch these things how a complacent awards season can lead to something like Cherry Jones in 2nd place for 2 throwaway scenes and Fiona Shaw in a good position for like 5 minutes cameos every episode. I feel like this website needs to focus and really try to educate potential voters viewing these forums. Some of these sketchy winners are way too close to pulling it off. We need editors singing it from the mountain top once voting starts.

    I agree. I have had it in second or third place in my predictions since it got nominated. Adam McKay is beloved by the Academy. I do think you have a point on the GOT directing vote-split. Miguel worked 55 nights but D&D are loved by Academy members.

    Exactly. That’s why I think a vote-split is hugely possible in directing.

    I’m certain that a GOT actress will win. Voters are very emotional about GOT ending (they proved it with the nominations). I really can’t see the majority of them going for either Shaw or Garner.

    It is because they do not need a majority that we are considering them so strongly.

    I actually struggle to see Williams being very successful now that the series is over. Game of Thrones is the only project of much note she’s ever done. I get the feeling that she’ll struggle to escape typecasting. Also, while this is inevitably going to sound mean spirited, I fear that her peculiar look is going to hurt her chances of getting roles. I hope I’m wrong about that, but I can’t help but feel it’s going to happen. And if you completely ignore Game of Thrones, when you compare her current career to the ones of the costars nominated in her category, they’re all clearly more successful. Also I’m pretty certain Emmy voters don’t choose their favorite based on which they believe will have a better career.

    You should watch The Falling

     

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

    So I’ve started Killing Eve and I’m not a fan… at all.

    How far are you? Because I wasn’t a fan of the first two episodes and almost considered dropping it, but it really takes off in the third episode. And then I watched 4 & 5 right after that. Such an enjoyable trio of episodes. Season 2 is meh without Waller-Bridge’s touch, but Jodie Comer is the reason to watch.

    This video describes just how bad the script for Game of Thrones “The Iron Throne” actually is. This episode better not win for Best Drama Writing. The script was really that awful. D&D relied way too much on the direction of the episode rather than the writing. Lazy, lazy writers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akl_UJMIock

    I don’t think I’d even want the win if I were GOT actor or actress. It’s now worth the inevitable blowback from the people that will be unhappy about it. The negative feedback for every single character arc this season has been so intense that any win would be considered tainted. A Lena, Maisie, or Peter will definitely garner complaints from within the fan base.

And if you completely ignore Game of Thrones, when you compare her current career to the ones of the costars nominated in her category, they’re all clearly more successful. Also I’m pretty certain Emmy voters don’t choose their favorite based on which they believe will have a better career.

    The idea of her being typecast is so strange to me? If you even watch her for 30 seconds in real life, she is so jarringly different from Arya(especially the last two seasons) in both appearance and demeanor, it would be hard to only see her as the character.

    She’s never even played another character remotely like Arya.  There also aren’t even an overabundance of Arya roles in Hollywood for her to be typecast in? The only cast member I see being typecast is Kit Harington.

    As for the success of the others. Maisie is only 22 years old, where would she have found the time to build an elaborate filmography while working as a child on the biggest show on tv? Lena and Gwen are already 20+ years older than her. Gwen’s most notable role is a small, underwhelming role in two Star Wars films that have ben panned by fans of the franchise.

    Sophie just helmed one of the biggest box office bombs and critical failures of the decade. In what warped reality is this astronomical success that outpaces Maisie’s work?

    Maisie’s leading role in Fox’s New Mutant film that keeps getting delayed is completely on level with what Sophie’s done. She also landed the lead role for a UK six-part series not to long ago.

     

    As for Maisie’s looks, I think they might give her far more freedom than Sophie. Sophie will have much stiffer competition in her pursuit of stereotypical leading lady roles and I don’t think she has the onscreen charisma to pull it off.

    Maisie could have a very  interesting career as a character actress(especially in the UK) wether it be in indie productions or mainstream films. I think her face is actually quite interesting and distinctive.

    I’m not saying she’s reached anywhere near that skill yet but are we forgetting that women like Elisabeth Moss,MaggieGyllenhaal, and Tilda Swindon exist? Not every actress with a  worthwhile career looks like Jennifer Aniston.

    So I’m guessing no mention of Alfie Allen either? Kit Harington is starting to campaign on his own. He’s on Kelly and Ryan this week as well as Gwendoline Christie. Alfie Allen will be on James Corden this week. HBO is making it way too obvious they are gunning for Maisie Williams for SA. Peter Dinklage doesn’t need any help.

     

    The Gwen and Kit interviews on Live with Kelly and Ryan this week are both repeats of old interviews from pre-season 8. The only new cast tv interview was last nights one with Alfie on the James Corden show.

    Totally, bravo for the great comment, I agree with everything, not only with the part that I quoted.

    Many people here need a reality check, Christie role in Star Wars could have been played by my grandmother, no one cares about it, her other role is in the second season of Top of the Lake which is not a bigger achievement that the other TV roles that Williams has had.

    I adore Turner, but is going to very hard for her to escape the gigantic flop and embarrassment that Dark Phoenix is.

    Headey has a bigger career and this is why she was contracted in the first place, she was one of the actors that HBO needed to give some prestige to the show. She should not have to be compared to the rest.
