    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It’s great that you are taking your time to watch the tapes, but you are incredibly bias when you do that and you have some weird obsession with screen time.

    I remember incredibly well all the tapes (with the exception of Garner since I do not watch Ozark and I refuse to see TV shows in a way that they are not meant to be consumed) and I completely disagree with you.

    As a fan of Killing Eve I NEVER felt that Carolyn is a cameo, she is the THIRD main character. Unlike you and others, actors do understand that there are very different types of acting. Carolyn does not need a backstory or a bigger weight, she has to be constantly mysterious and impossible to read. Shaw, has said it herself, the difficulty in that role is about the line delivery, hers is beyond perfect. The lines about the moisturizer were so perfectly acted that I remember them perfectly fine without having seen them a second time. Her possible win will be deserved based on her entire work on the character, something that cannot be judged by one episode in her case.

    And Cherry Jones is a guest actress, what she has brought to the role is credibility and naturality. The best example of her work is June’s conversation with the male doctor in “Heroic”, when he heard who June’s mother is, he was impressed and described her as fearful and inspiring, all the fans agreed with his assertion, this is what Jones managed to do with ease and with a few scenes. Not many actors can do that. She does not deserve to win, but her nomination is not that out of place, she does a lot with very few minutes of time, this is what a guest actress does.

    The funny thing about Shaw is that she probably wouldn’t be nominated in a year as competitive as 2020. But the fact that she got in a weak field, such as this year’s, with four actress from the same show vote splitting, make her a threat to actually win. And that win would most likely carry her to a nomination in the heavy-weight 2020 field.

    Of course she’s very talented and her lines delivery are always extremely on point. But damn, she got lucky.

    Yes, an excellent point, I agree with all this. However, the same thing can be said about the other five nominees in this category, especially the GoT ladies. At least Shaw has a BAFTA win and Garner has a very prestigious and unique SAG nomination, the four GoT actresses have nothing, for two of them is their first recognition at any awards ever, for Williams her second after her first Emmy nomination and Headey has never been nominated to a SAG, she has just 1 Golden Globe nomination (Olivia Colman beat her) and just 1 Critics Choice nomination (fair enough, Thandie Newton beat her here as well), and yes, she has 4 previous Emmy nominations and she probably would have made it with stronger competition, but she would have never won, there is no passion for her.

    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.

    I watched the first 3 and I’m not loving it. I’ll keep watching though. Comer is great. I also started Bodyguard and I’m not loving it either (despite Madden’s stellar performance). The drama lineup is extremely uninteresting to me. The only shows I care about are Game of Thrones and Pose.

    I was originally rooting for Pose at the Emmys but the second season is such a disappointment that Im okay with GOT sweeping everything (except writing cause that would be a disgrace).

    More like, shouldn’t be nominated – Sophie Turner. Poor Rhea Seehorn.

    Ahem… you mean Susan Kelechi Watson…

    It is bizarre that Game of Thrones is going to end its run with four series Emmys and only one PGA Award.

    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 have “Succession” pilot in 1st place for DGA winner Adam McKay.

    Both of them. Rhea Seehorn was higher than Watson in the prediction polls.

    Hmmm…wow, yeah I guess you got me there. I’m usually on top of repeats so my mistake. There’s usually some sort of indication that it’s a repeat and those airings didn’t have that. So I guess Alfie Allen is the only one smart enough in the cast to get onto a talk show. Also, I watched his interview last night where he was surrounded by three Academy members and was extremely charming. I mean the This Is Us cast is EVERYWHERE. Nikolaj is at least trying to book appearances. He’s been going to almost every Con out there. The obvious arrogance of some of the GoT cast is bothersome. I will not take the whole “they’re British so it’s more difficult for them to campaign” as a reasonable response. Phoebe Waller-Bridge lives in London and she’s working her butt off to campaign in the states.

    Game of Thrones is most likely sweeping the drama categories. The other shows nominated didn’t have the momentum, buzz, or viewership to beat Game of Thrones in ANYTHING. The only possibility of it losing anything will be for writing but I think that they are winning that too. Like I said before, “Battle of the Bastards” wasn’t a great script but they won for writing because voters loved the episode. Which makes me think “The Iron Throne” might be their choice for Best Directing. It’s also the only episode with a cinematography nomination.
