There used to be separate threads that discussed episode submissions and I thought that I start with Drama Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor.
BEST DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTOR
Alfie Allen, Game Of Thrones (“The Long Night”)
Jonathan Banks, Better Call Saul (“Winner”)
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Game Of Thrones (“A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”)
Peter Dinklage, Game Of Thrones (“The Iron Throne”)
Giancarlo Esposito, Better Call Saul (“Pinata”)
Michael Kelly, House Of Cards (“Chapter 73”)
Chris Sullivan, This Is Us (“Toby”)
BEST DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Gwendoline Christie, Game of Thrones (“A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”)
Julia Garner, Ozark (“The Gold Coast”)
Lena Headey, Game of Thrones (“The Bells”)
Fiona Shaw, Killing Eve (“Nice and Neat”)
Sophie Turner, Game of Thrones (“Winterfell”)
Maisie Williams, Game of Thrones (“The Long Night”)August 15, 2019 at 12:40 pm #1203025376
Peter Dinklage is obviously winning, but I would not say that he is quite a hundred percent locked. I have the tiniest nagging feeling that Emmy voters could recognize that he has several Emmys and that this season was trash and that they could subvert him. Maybe his co-stars siphon off some votes too and the threshold for a win is meanwhile lessened by the extra nominee.August 15, 2019 at 12:49 pm #1203025388
Was that episode the best that Sophie Turner could submit? If so, then that makes the snub of Susan Kelechi Watson that much more terrible.August 15, 2019 at 12:51 pm #1203025396
No. I think she don’t have any really strong episode, but she had good scenes in “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” and in the finale.August 15, 2019 at 1:06 pm #1203025425
Sophie Turner’s strongest episode was probably “The Last of the Starks”.August 15, 2019 at 1:28 pm #1203025467
“A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” aired and people declared a tape for Gwendoline Christie. “The Long Night” aired and people declared a tape for Maisie Williams. “The Last of the Starks” aired and people declared a secondary tape for Christie. “The Bells” aired and people declared a tape for Lena Headey, as well as a secondary tape for Williams. Then the season ended and we realized that Sophie Turner never got anything resembling a tape.August 15, 2019 at 1:32 pm #1203025479
Which is why Turner’s nomination is a joke…August 15, 2019 at 2:24 pm #1203025549
The supporting actors from Game of Thrones and Better Call Saul chose perfectly. Of course it doesn’t really matter since Peter Dinklage is pretty much a lock. I’d prefer a win for Jonathon Banks or Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, but they’re both long shots
Sophie Turner should’ve submitted “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”. She’s the only GOT actor nominated this year that didn’t have a good tape, but that was her strongest episode. It’s possible she didn’t choose it since Gwendolyn Christie completely outperformed her in that episode.August 15, 2019 at 2:27 pm #1203025553This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 15, 2019 at 2:35 pm #1203025563
What did Sophie Turner do in “A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms” besides her talk with Dany?August 15, 2019 at 2:38 pm #1203025568
I think Sophie Turner should have submitted A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms and Gwendoline Christie should have submitted The Last of the Starks.
Maisie Williams was better in The Bells imo but submitting The Long Night was the right choice.
Lena obviously made the right choice.
Similar situation with Clarke: she had her best material in “The Bells”, but maybe The Last of Starks was the best choice.
Funny that a so problematic episode had so many good performances.August 15, 2019 at 2:50 pm #1203025580This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 15, 2019 at 2:56 pm #1203025586
True, true. I always thought her crying over Theon’s body and putting the House Stark pin on him was her best performance of the season. I think it was also Sophie’s last day on set so those were real tears. Which is why I felt she should have submitted The Last of the Starks.
