There’s been some discussion over whether Josh O’Connor should be submitted as a supporting actor or a guest actor for his work as Prince Charles. Where would you put him?
Personally, while I wouldn’t mind him submitting as a guest, I’d pick supporting. Despite his low episode count, he’s still a very big role and important role with all but one of his episodes having him in a very prominent role. And the fact that the show is popular with actors means I think he can make it into the more competitive category. And with O’Connor in Supporting Actor where the show doesn’t really have a super strong contender (Ben Daniels was very good, but I don’t see him making it), that would allow Netflix to make a stronger push for Charles Dance and Derek Jacobi, with the former already being projected to win as long as O’Connor’s not in that race.May 4, 2020 at 11:54 am #1203462707
We are beating this to death. He’s a supporting character that’s guest eligible. Supporting nomination >>> Guest win, nobody really cares about the creative arts Emmys. He’s the season breakout and I’m sure Netflix and his team knows it. If I were O’Connor’s people, I would ensure the supporting placement.May 4, 2020 at 12:10 pm #1203462752
Guest would be an easy nomination I think but I think they should put him in supporting. His arc is so pivotal to the season, and Dance is in guest too. So, they should move to different categories and Netflix should push them both for the win because they’re great.May 4, 2020 at 12:19 pm #1203462781
It’s an easy call seeing he’s one of the few nominees who can CHOOSE.
If he submits as Guest, he is a sure fire nominee, and has as good a shot as any to win.
If he submits as supporting, he is not a sure fire nominee up against previous nominees and strong contenders, and has no shot to win even if he slips in.
NETFLIX OR JOSH’S “PEOPLE”. Make the SMART call.

NOBODY CARES ABOUT CREATIVE ARTS? Than why does this website cover them LIVE and stream a live reaction?
IT’S ABOUT WINNING. IT’S ABOUT GETTING YOUR CLIENT A NOMINATION.
This reminds me of the incredibly STUPID Lead vs Supporting Oscar debate. Ignoring that AN OSCAR is an OSCAR.

I am of the opinion that anyone who currently qualifies for guest should submit as such as a rule, but he will surely submit supporting.May 4, 2020 at 12:26 pm #1203462807
Surely you can see that a Lead vs Supporting Oscar is a far different comparison than a supporting vs guest Emmy, considering they are at different ceremonies and one of them isn’t even aired anymore. Sure, people here caring about the creative arts emmys, but in terms of visibility between the two there is no comparison.May 4, 2020 at 12:41 pm #1203462848
He should submit in guest, but I definitely think he’ll go supporting. I currently have him missing supporting and I think it would be a mistake. I think the visibility of Creative Arts ceremony (if it even happens) is besides the point – the industry will certainly recognise a young actor winning an acting Emmy, regardless of the category.

I think he should submit in Guest, but I think the powers that be will look at who else can be submitted to Guest and Josh O’Connor will end up submitted in Supporting to make room for Derek Jacobi, etc.May 5, 2020 at 4:59 pm #1203465675
He should submit in the category where he is likeliest to get the nomination and likeliest to win, which is Guest Actor. The Creative Arts Emmys aired on FXX in the States, so I’m not sure why people are saying it’s not aired anymore? It’s a different ceremony a week before the Primetime Emmys, but the Guest Actor Emmy statuette is not like half the size of the Supporting Actor Emmy statuette or anything like that. We have this debate with the Oscars too, but Viola Davis, Brad Pitt, and others, qualified for both Lead and Supporting acting categories, but chose the category in which they were likelier to win, and they did. I think Josh is an exceptional actor, and I will always remember him for “God’s Own Country.”
