I would vote Miguel Sapochnik for The Long Night
I would vote David Benioff and D.B. Weiss for The Iron Throne
I would vote David Nutter for The Last of the Starks

    This is a repost of a previous thread. The last poll was not working for some reason, which I did not realize because I was wrestling with a decision.

    If the Emmys suddenly made you a voter, but restricted your choices in Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series to Game of Thrones, what would you do? I listed them in their order from the Emmy website.

    It has to be Sapochnik IMO. Putting my GoT bias aside, this is the one directing nominee I can say 100% honestly that is better than all other nominees in the category this year.

    FYC: Lena Headey ("Game of Thrones") for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Miguel Sapochnik (“Game of Thrones”) for Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series

    Undoubtedly Miguel Sapochnik. Yes, yes, it was dark (well it wasn’t that bad on my TV), but what he achieved, visually, with that episode is incredible.

    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.

    “The Iron Throne” was the best directed of these three episodes, but it is not even worthy of a nomination, so I am throwing out the tapes here and voting Sapochnik because of his exceptional work on “The Bells” (from the same eligible season, no less) that was not submitted.

    Not a fan of any of those episodes, but I think I would go with “The Long Night” (tho I would prefer in this sepcific category “The Bells”)

    “The Long Night”, which was the correct choice to submit over the dreadfully boring “The Bells”. I really wanna convince myself they’ll split the vote and I can predict McKay but it’ll probably be Sapochnik, D&D will absolutely steal votes though, they really love them.

    I watched Emilia Clarke scenes in “The Bell” today and this episode is really impressive. The first scenes (Dany with Tyrion, Jon and Varys) are so well-directed and the Arya sequence is oustanding. It could be one of the best GOT episodes and the best Miguel’s episode if it had a great (or decent) writting.

    “The Long Night” is my favorite episode, so of course is my choice in this scenario.

    The Last of the Starks serving some Unbowed Unbent Unbroken realness here. It’s kinda sad to see how much class this category used to contain. Even the typical name-check Borgias and The Knick noms were cool.

    I was a fan of the additional 6th spot for writing/directing at first but I take it back after seeing what they ended up being for.

    Where exactly is the bad writing in The Bells?

    Mmmm BS

    Seeing 90%+ of the users here unanimously vote for Sapochnik gives me hope vote splitting might not be a big issue here, and he might eventually win.

    On the opposite side, if the results are so close even here for the Supporting Actress category, my hope for Lena is going way down

    Sapochnik, but he should have submitted “The Bells” over “The Long Night.”

    Also predicting DGA winner Adam McKay to win the Emmy for the “Succession” pilot.
