    I doubt Harington will beat Madden. Madden will be helped a lot by being a Game of Thrones alum. Since his win still would kind of be a win for the show, I think that it will be easy for Game of Thrones fans to vote for him (especially since I bet that a lot of the people who love Jon also were big fans of Robb).

    I’m not currently predicting either of them to win, but I think they both have a shot. I’d say right now it looks like it’s between  the two of them, Bateman, and Odenkirk. I’ve yet to see Madden’s performance, but I’ve yet to hear anyone say he was less than fantastic. However, while his  time on GOT might help, the fact that Harington is still on it will help him much more. Also, Jon Snow is much more popular than Robb Stark, which means that Madden’s support will come from fans of his show, rather than leftover love from his prior role. However, while everyone may be raving about Madden’s performance, and Harington looks like he’s gonna have a very eventful next couple of episodes, I think both will fall victim to “slap the stud syndrome” allowing Odenkirk (who I fully support) or more likely Bateman to take it this year. But like I said, all four seem to have potential, and it’s likely to be an exciting race

    In a month people will remember only the big episodes anyway.

    Let’s be serious here, Bateman already has that Drama Actor Emmy in the bag. It’s the same thing we have seen so many times: actor known for comedic work wins for his first big dramatic role in a popular series. Odenkirk is the only one who can upset.

    Nah, I don’t think Bateman has it in the bag. Richard Madden says hi.

    Emmys 2019 FYC: Lena Headey ("Game of Thrones"), Cicely Tyson ("HTGAWM"), Viola Davis ("HTGAWM"), Richard Madden ("Bodyguard"), "Bodyguard," "The Haunting of Hill House" & "Escape at Dannemora" in all categories

    Madden couldn’t even get a SAG or a BAFTA nomination, how is he winning the Emmy? And the show itself performed abysmally at the industry awards while Ozark was nominated everywhere.

    I don’t know what people were really expecting, but it seems like people are not liking this season at all (based solely on IMDb and RT). Do you think it might affect it’s chances this year at the Outstanding Drama Series category?

    When you have actual critics criticising the show for not offering any water cooler moments or any big battles, you can guess how the casual viewers would be reacting.

    random question: how did Iain Glen aka Mormont get a Sag Ensemble nomination for S6 when he was in only 3 episodes?

    Nobody vetted his eligibility.

    Are we headed to the possibility of Headey being in Guest actress?

    I doubt that she appears in the battle episode next week and dying in the fourth episode of a six-episode final season is feasible, so she could be guest-eligible, although HBO is probably entering her in supporting regardless.

    Is there a reason to think Dinklage will beat Coster-Waldau? He beat him  in 2018, but he gave a better performance that year. He wasn’t able to beat Harington and probably got fewer votes than Harington did when Harington gave the better performance in 2016. If Coster-Waldau has a significantly better performance, I think he can win.

    The majority here actually preferred Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to Peter Dinklage last year.

    Episode 2 was great! So much better than the opener.

    Felt like a proper Game of Thrones, character driven episode. It was a huge pay off for the fans of the actual characters, not fans of the battles or shock twists.

    The battles can sometimes be exciting (like the incredible Battle of the Bastards), but they can also get tiresome and repetitive.

    Too bad that taste couldn’t actually transfer over to the Emmys and prevent a third Dinklage win.

    And how many of those votes were because people were tired of Dinklage winning and thought Coster-Waldau deserved to win an Emmy? I would have voted for Coster-Waldau in that poll too, but that doesn’t mean that I actually thought he was better than Dinklage.

    You act like that could not also be a factor for Emmy voters.

    The BAFTA nominations are a hot mess this year (for lots of different reasons – read up on it here on the BAFTA threads). Madden was only snubbed because the BAFTAs hate popularity and historically go for the underdogs rather than shows or performers which already made it big in the States.

    And Netflix did not even campaign Bodyguard at the guilds. For at least one (PGA) it wasn’t even eligible. That explains the lack of exposure and the lack of nominations.

    So how is Madden coming for his well deserved Emmy? A killer mix between Netflix’s aggressive campaigning, an undeniable performance, crazy amount of publicity and a hit movie coming out just before Emmy voting starts.

    That’s fair. Still though, I think Coster-Waldau has a chance if he gives a significantly better performance. That combined with the career narrative could give him an edge.
