    If anyone ever asked you what vote splitting is, show them this picture from the Vanity Fair imaginary ballot 901-BCB39-5-F4-D-4-D1-C-B39-A-A2-B9950186-C8 Poor Sapochnik

    The difference is that Lisa Brühlmann, a Swiss director with no name recognition in the US, would never have this much support from Emmy voters – because they either go for the showiest entry or the biggest name.

    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.

    OK…I know i just said in a previous post that this kinda polls/ballots don’t matter but WOW!!! Killing Eve in first with 27%???!!! Never saw that coming. Are we underestimating it for Directing?! I mean ‘Desperate Times’ is indeed a fantastic episode and a woman directed it. God this ballot got me confused now…

    1. Billy Porter (BY FAR)
    2. Milo Ventimiglia (great clip, but not his best in that episode)
    3. Bob Odenkirk
    4. Sterling K. Brown

    I won’t bother ranking Bateman and Harington, but Bateman would probably be like No. 50 and Harington No.1000 (I have to laugh)

    😂😂😂… I’m literally praying at this point that Billy Porter wins.

    Well… we have seen so many crazy things at the Emmys that i’m starting to question my own intelligence on this matter. I really think that a GoT vote split in directing is starting to look inevitable. And Killing Eve is looking more like the alternative than Succession. But it’s true that they love big names and Adam McKay is really liked in the industry. I think we are going to have some surprises during the ceremony.

    It really isn’t very representative. Just another site’s polls in the internet bubble where Killing Eve and Sharp Objects lead everything, except weirdly best series.

    Although irrepresentative in terms of which challenger will beat the nominees from the same show (e.g. McKay is clearly going to be the one to benefit if anyone from the Thrones split in directing), I’d say generally the interactive ballot across the board is pretty decent way of visualising vote splitting for those who don’t really get it

    Yeah that’s what I mean, I don’t think it’s actually representative of anything and I don’t really think Killing Eve will actually win Directing (I think McKay has it if not GoT), but that just shows how the votes for GoT almost split evenly between the nominees.. exactly what I expect from Supporting Actress unfortunately

    FYC: Lena Headey ("Game of Thrones") for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Miguel Sapochnik (“Game of Thrones”) for Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series

    Killing Eve…ugh really? I figured GoT would vote-split but that the alternative would be Succession.

    I really wish they would fix this vote-splitting thing…it seems unfair. Sapochnik really deserves that Emmy.

    I think Holly from THT is too low in the odds for writing.

    I can’t believe Sophie Turner is second in even a fan poll. All biases aside, she was by far the weakest performer out of the supporting actresses.

    No, she wasn’t.

    Agreed. I think it could actually be the “safe” alternative for voters who don’t want to give this to D&D. It’s already won before, which helps.

    Let’s not forget, Emmy voters still have a hard-on (pardon) for D&D. Leslie Jones just posted this today: https://www.instagram.com/p/B2SMpY6HnZh/

    One of the things that I genuinely hate to say is that I think the weakest thing about Kit and Emilia is I actually don’t think they’re very good in scenes together. In terms of natural screen chemistry (romantic or otherwise – for instance, I think Maisie Williams is at her very best with Rory McCann, who clearly isn’t a romantic screen partner) I place them quite low down the list, cast wise. The fact that they spent most of the season together I think disadvantaged them both.

    I think it’s because the actors are supposedly friends irl, and that’s the vibe I was getting from them on screen , two pals hanging out. But as for romantic chemistry? Hm…

    Also I’m not sure what exactly script writers were writing when they wrote their relationships. Like, it was supposed to be super tragic epic love story? Or it was supposed to be just infatuation that ended badly?
