    This is becoming a point of contention in the drama thread.

    Neither. But I voted for Waldau simply because I knew he’d be the underdog.

    I voted for Waldau because I remember him but I can’t tell you what Tyrion did this season.

    I don’t think vote splitting will be much of a factor. The only reason it was with Harrington is because Jon Snow is such a popular character, Jaime isn’t nearly as popular.

    Dinklage by a landslide. I love Waldau but I rewatched season 7 just last week and realized that he didn’t really have a standout moment like he did in e.g. season 3. I would rank him in 5th if going by episodes because while he’s great in “The Spoils of War”, he just doesn’t come close to the 4 people I would rank ahead of him. He is miles ahead of my 6th place, Joseph Fiennes, though.

    Dinklage has a brilliant submission. He carries that finale and has a lot to do. His scene with Lena Headey is brilliant and he once again proves that he is an amazing actor.

    But that’s just me.

    I voted for Waldau because, even if between the two performances I prefere Dinklage’s, if i was an Emmy voter I’d try to prevent Dinklage from winning a third time.

    I’d rather Harbour gets it actually but between Dinklage and Coster-Waldau…. I think Dinklage is the better actor in general but by virtue of material, I liked Coster-Waldau more this season. He stood out more for me despite not having a Big Scene designed for emoting like Dinklage did. Dinklage had some great scenes but Waldau had a more cohesive and poignant arc that landed better, whereas Dinklage’s material took a hit from the writers’ inability to figure out what the hell to do with Tyrion after decimating his individual arc and integrating him into Dany’s. If it’s between the two of them, I’d rather Waldau gets it, also in the name of spreading the wealth. A third Emmy for Dinklage is hella repetitive and pointless.

    Coster-Waldau had more to do this season and Dinklage…..well I’ll just say he was great but this season was not his best at all. Hence, I voted for NCW

    Then watch “Eastwatch.” Powerful material there of him talking to his brother Jaime. Coster-Waldau was about as good as usual, but he didn’t even have the transcendent standout scene of Tyrion talking to Cersei in “The Dragon and the Wolf,” who perfectly captured the emotional and moral conflict of his character in his relationship with his sister in that scene.

    Plus, one could argue that the only reason Coster-Waldau got nominated this year was due to Harington having submitting in Lead.

    I want Dinklage to win a 3rd Emmy for this category simply due to his Tyrion being such a vastly more iconic performance than all the other nominees. If that means 3 Emmys and he has the quality material to justify an Emmy, then fine. I’ve always privately pretended his Season 5 Emmy came for Season 4 anyway.

    I think that was the Emmys way of making up to him for his loss last year, similar to Mendelsohn the next year.

    Precisely, and he lost for Season 6 mostly because his material was about the same level as 5 AND he had already gotten his makeup win that previous year, not because of vote-splitting with Harington, I think.

    Honestly, that whole thing about Harington has always struck me as overblown. Sure, Jon Snow is a popular character but Harington never seemed like a big lock even in supporting this year. He had a Moment last year with the hype over Jon Snow’s resurrection and Battle of the Bastards but that doesn’t mean his presence in supporting would have been any more assured this year. The guy only got nominated ONCE in seven seasons and suddenly everyone is acting like it’s a given that he was snubbed only because of the jump to lead. While I do think submitting lead hurt his chances, the guy wasn’t a lock in supporting either. He sure had the screen time this season but he did nothing with it.

    In terms of Waldau, it can also be argued that him getting nominated shows  passion for him. While he had significant presence this year, the hype didn’t compare to what Harington got last year and yet he got nominated. It’s not like the voters HAD to nominate two GoT actors in supporting, they could have just nominated main-stay Dinklage and be done with it. They did exactly that in Supporting Actress and snubbed previous nominee Maisie Williams. While Waldau surely benefited from Harington’s absence in supporting, the fact that he made the cut when Williams (playing a fan favorite character and previously nominated) didn’t when she should have similarly benfitted from Emilia Clarke’s absence as well shows passion for Waldau.

    I voted for Waldau because, even if between the two performances I prefere Dinklage’s, if i was an Emmy voter I’d try to prevent Dinklage from winning a third time.

    Erm, isn’t season 6 the one where Tyrion famously drank and knew things? Dinklage really had nothing to do this season. He missed like half the season and the only scene he had something to work with was the one where he freed the dragons. I still don’t know what he was even nominated for this season, other than for being Peter Dinklage. He really had nothing to justify a win for season 6. His award for Season 5 was a makeup win, I agree, but I wouldn’t say that his material in s5 was on the same level as s6. At least he had material in s5 (I say while I still stew in frustration over the mess Weiss and Benioff made of Tyrion’s arc post fleeing Westeros)
