    I just watched The Nightingale last night and I still can’t get over the resemblance of Aisling Franciosi (Lyanna Stark) and Maisie Williams… maybe it’s just me.

    Tbh, I also see resemblance with Noah Schnapp.

    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.

    Aisling has exactly the same colouring as Maisie.

    It’s kind of insane that HBO isn’t doing a Robert’s Rebellion prequel next. Her casting along with Young Ned and Sir Arthur Dayne was spot on.

    Emilia Clarke is NOT winning the Emmy. Wake up, my loves! She was simply serviceable in that atrocious final season. She does not deserve the Emmy and the acting branch is not that delusional to give it to her. The overwhelming amount of GoT nods won’t translate to an overwhelming amount of wins. It’s just lazy name-checking in a boring year during nominations voting. There are alternatives in every each category for GoT to lose. Oh is winning. She has the most buzz and she’s winning it as sort of make-up for last year since she wasn’t able to win. And she has that second random nod for SNL under her belt which shows that they love her, they’re namechecking her, and she’s getting up on that stage.
    GoT will win series, for Dinklage and directing + writing nonetheless. 4 Emmys on the big night. That’s still pretty good considering this season of GoT was probably the worst piece of writing ever materialised on screen in the history of television. Guilty pleasure shows feature more awardsworthy writing than that atrocity rofl.

    I really do wish for their own mental health the Clarke and Headey fans start preparing themselves for the inevitable.

    GOT at it’s most universally praised was ONLY able to win for Dinkalage with the actors. Yes it got a ton of nominations (most of the competition sat this year out stupidly). But it’s gonna pull Emilia and Lena to win for it’s most divisive season? I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Emilia isn’t competing against other GOT actors this year and she basically carried the season. She has a much better shot than Headey. Emilia very well could win if there’s a vote-split for Killing Eve. I think that’s what most people that are predicting her to win are thinking.

    An Emilia Clarke win would certainly be the biggest crowdpleaser of the night.

    I feel like if Emilia Clarke wins (which I unfortunately think is very possible) it’ll be a Bohemian Rhapsody best editing situation. Hear me out:
    Despite the (as went viral) pretty poor reception of the editing in the film, this narrative built: that regardless of the end product, the editor deserved an A for effort for being able to cobble something together out of a VERY complicated shoot. And something extremely successful, no doubt.

    I think the people who love Game of Thrones (of which there are clearly a lot) could vote for Emilia because they love her. But even people who thought this season was bad, might still vote for her because the perception is that she did the best she could with the shitty material. Even if the end product wasn’t great, people respect the amount of effort she had to put in in order to be even as good as she was with such awkwardly written material (I happen to be one of the people in the camp that agrees the writing was shitty, but it mightve been the best Clarke ever was on the show, which to be clear imo still isn’t good enough to win). So long story short is I could see her winning not because no one thinks this season was bad, but as a pat on the back for dealing with the shitty writing and coming out the other side unscathed (despite ALL the complaints people had about her arc, the blame fell pretty unanimously on the writing, none at all on her).

    Ma’am nooooo. The editor for Bohemian Rhapsody didn’t deserve an Oscar for trying. He deserves to be put out of job. Truly one of the worst editing job ever.

    It’s honestly interesting to me how Emilia Clarke has gotten so much praise this past season when in earlier years, she was probably the most divisive actor on the show.

    Her acting really improved in Season 8. It was super noticeable.

    Gurl, if that’s Clarke’s path to winning it’s not happening.

    For those that think a big GOT sweep is coming answer me these legit questions I have.

    1. Why has Game of Thrones NEVER won Best Ensemble at the Screen Actors Guild Awards? With it’s size of cast and popularity it should absolutely have won it by now if it is widely popular with snobby actors.

    2. Why did Dinkalage never win at SAG in his 4 nominations there?

    3. Why have none of the GOT women been nominated individually at SAG?

    If the actors really truly loved Game of Thrones to the point it is gonna sweep acting categories it has never won before in a divisive year, wouldn’t we have seen SOME support for it previously at SAG? And if we want to just focus on the Emmys of course only PD has won there…and plenty of GOT nominees have not had vote splitting to worry about (Diana Rigg, Headey last year, and still lost.)

    If THT s3 had been eligible, Elizabeth Moss would have been the frontrunner to win, right?

    None of these races were as weak as this year. Also, I don’t think it’s a question of actors loving GOT. It’s just that they obviously feel very emotional about it ending which led to them nominating people they would never have nominated before (Christie, Turner, Allen, Van Houten). I think they’ll probably do the same when voting for winners.

    I don’t think that matters that much because obviously Emmy voters are the only one who LOVE GOT. Other awards bodies don’t.

    So even if only actors vote(I don’t even know if that’s the case), GoT sweeping wouldn’t be surprising at all.
