    Darlings, at this point I think McKay is winning directing.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    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?

    I think that’s my point – I was just never “noooooo don’t break these two up! their love is so neverending my heart is broken” which is how I thought I was supposed to feel, but also, it’s not like I had a decade of build up either.

    The chemistry was definitely there, in the beginning, they just became too good of friends as the show went on.

    I thought the Jon and Dany relationship worked fine in season 7. It could’ve definitely used a bit more time to develop, but the same can be said about a lot in that season (I genuinely like season 7, but the decreased episode count was a clear problem). In season 8, their relationship just didn’t work at all, no doubt due in part to it being a major reason why both Jon and Daenerys were ruined as characters this year.

    4. Sterling K Brown
    5. Jason Bateman
    6. Kit Harrington (horrible)

    I hated GOT season 8, but I can objectively say a directing win for Sapochnik is deserved, but I also think one for McKay is deserved.

    Game of Thrones deserves to win directing no matter the divisiveness of the season. No matter what anyone says, D&D also did a great job directing the finale. But I will say, Succession is my alternative and probably will take the award due to a vote split.

    Agreed. D&D’s writing left a lot to be desired, but they’re direction wound up being very good. The only scene I thought was poorly done from a directorial standpoint was that super awkward moment when everyone stands up and says “All hail Bran the Broken”  and then immediately sit back down. That came across as really silly. It sort of felt like the famous “King in the North” chant but done wrong. In fact that whole scene feels like Robb and Jon’s coronations done wrong.

    What?

    The series finale was just decent in terms of direction regarding the dragon scenes and Daenerys’s closing act (Emilia’s acting)

    The rest of that episode was generic boring “let’s end this mess” scenes. No way it should have been nominated.

    This is a joke, right? The Iron Throne was one of the best-directed episodes of GoT in the last few seasons.
