I could write a whole lot more but if you can’t even remember the burial scene where she said goodbye to Theon, there is no point in continuing to discuss this with you.
Not a fan of Turner and even less of Sansa but she gave a very good performance in episode 4 and watching the documentary The Last Watch you can see that even after the scene had ended she was on character.

Emmy voters don’t always think in season-specific ways…I don’t know why this is such a difficult concept to grasp.
Ask Ben Mendehlson.
Headey is still out front until someone presents me with a viable argument for an alternative because I still haven’t heard one.
Maisie The Night King Slayer Williams send her regards

Garner might not even get nominated

Has the Disappearance Of Madeline McCann not been submitted. I can’t find it in any categories
IT wasn’t. I supposed it is not eligibleJune 15, 2019 at 10:45 am #1202939221
I think Ozark is wildly overestimated and with it all cast and crewJune 15, 2019 at 9:24 am #1202939132
Maybe not the best analogy, but take Brown vs. Ventimiglia for the first two seasons of TIU. Maybe Sterling deserved that first Emmy, but there were a lot of people who considered Ventimiglia’s performance to be superior, especially in the second season. But Ventimiglia could never win, because Brown is the more respected, more lauded actor of the two. The most Ventimiglia could do was “stop” Brown from winning his second Emmy, which may or may not have happened.
So I agree with the possibility of Comer stealing votes from Oh, but I just don’t see how it’ll be enough. And even if, is there a clear alternative? In my mind it’s Clarke, but it could just as well be Linney or Wright. And if the alternatives split the vote, then Oh is again at an advantage.
While many of us may tout Comer’s as the superior performance, there are many people out there who can’t stop singing their praises for Oh.
Not only is Emilia Clarke the clear alternative base on performance alone but on narrative too. Ever since she penned that article in the New Yorker about her two aneurysm she brought a lot of positive attention to herself and put her performance of previous seasons in another perspective. Also she has attracted very positives reviews for her work this season, she’s definitely the MVP of season 8…..and if GoT is winning big at the Emmys she has a real chance of an upset win.June 15, 2019 at 9:07 am #1202939111
GOT Supporting Actress contenders: Williams > Christie > Turner > Headey.
Saddly, I think this is right as much as i love Lena Heady in the role of Cersei there’s not justification for she to be nominated, though I’m keeping her in my prediction because blind love for the character. Williams looks to me like the only lock for a nomination with a real chance for Christie. I wouldn’t be surprise if in the end Williams is the only nominee because Christie absolutely will block Turner who has never been deserving anyway.June 14, 2019 at 3:29 pm #1202938347
Last year i stop watching Pose after the second episode, now I’m watching the complete first season but still find the whole thing pretentious, full of cliché, unremarkable and pointless. After watching multiples interview with Billy Porter i can’t see too many differences between his real life persona and his character. If not for the “diversity” issue this wouldn’t be under Emmy consideration.June 14, 2019 at 12:42 pm #1202938054
Why on earth would Arquette lose the Emmy to Williams of all people when she can’t even win an Oscar?
There’s only one Oscar category for Lead Actress while there’s like ten millions at the Emmy…Not the same thing.June 14, 2019 at 11:27 am #1202937945
Can any of Emmy insiders find out which performers on the ballot were disqualified???!!! We must know!!!!!
I’m more interested in knowing the show and studio behind this fraud.June 14, 2019 at 11:18 am #1202937923
Last year I said that the fact that Thrones was nominated in Casting was a clear sign that it was going to win Drama Series because that was a category where it had not business to be there for Season 7. This year I’m taking 2 categories as bellwether to measure the strength and two for the weakness. For strength I’m watching Lead Actor and Casting, if GoT get those two nods I’ll take it as a clear sign that it is winning everything, while that for weakness all red flags will be waving if Thrones doesn’t get into Cinematography and Writing, specially the former.June 14, 2019 at 10:07 am #1202937834

I’m a fan of GoT but I’m curious about why you think it will win Casting when Thrones didn’t have any new cast member?…. Thrones shouldn’t even be nominated not that i would be against given Nina Gold every damn award in the world.June 12, 2019 at 5:34 pm #1202935222
Several performers have been disqualified from voting for the upcoming Emmys. Reason: block voting:
Very interesting… Any world on what show/performers were at the center of this pose?June 12, 2019 at 3:11 pm #1202935085
I can’t understand why and how Netflix couldn’t handle better all the buzz generated by The Haunting of Hill House and The Disappearance of Madeline McCann and turn it into a more successful award story. Both of those shows are extremely well done.June 12, 2019 at 12:55 pm #1202934851
Your argument is muddled between what should vs what could. You make claims as to why BCS and Succession COULDN’T beat Game of Thrones due to their apparent buzz and subject matter, and that may be true, but that’s doesn’t mean they SHOULDN’T, and they both should.
Last Oscar season, Bohemian Rhapsody had more buzz and was a more obvious Best Picture nominee than superior movies like Widows or Eighth Grade. This is why everyone assumed and predicted Bohemian COULD be a BP nominee and not the other two, not that it SHOULD.
Let me clarify that…. In not way shape or form i consider Season 8 to be a bad season, it is a phenomenal and remarkable piece of TV. That doesn’t mean that i don’t have any issue with the whole product, I have as i had last year with the six episode.
People who never liked the show are being very loud but that’s not completely new… Way too many people has complained about everything without any reason and the best example is episode three because “they couldn’t see anything” it most be the fault of the DP and not of the shitty TV device of some watchers. Some complain about the pace but this is a recurrent complain that goes way back to the pilot episode because some still want the show to be like any boring regular show that has being brought to TV…. some complained about that plots move to fast, well it is the ending there’s no time to take two seasons wandering between King’s Landing and Winterfell, it is not too much to expect that the audience use the brain once in a while to assume that between scenes some time has past (S7 E6 notwithstanding). Another thing is that some people has being complained about some actions from certain character that has being characterized as out of nowhere and only people who watch GoT without seeing it could say that the liberation of King’s Landing come out of nowhere.
On this last point I do have a complain and it is that the writers didn’t gave Dany the opportunity of explain herself, also there’s some layers of the character that has been lost for the writers maybe because of the popularity of the show and some PC mentality has taken over HBO and the producers of GoT. The Targaryens are created by GRRM in the mold of the Egyptians and the Dothraky as the Mongols so the actions of these two groups could be perceived as barbaric in some instance but that is the source of inspiration that GRRM choose for his main character and when Daenerys said that she would waste armies and turn cities to dust she wasn’t bluffing, it was her nature and that doesn’t turn her into a war criminal, GoT is supposed to be a medieval story and in medieval times the defeated armies were destroyed and the cities wiped out of the face of the earth, heck even the Bible describe the destruction of Canaan by the good guys. Daenerys did nothing wrong. Another issue I have is that three times in the seasons finale is said that the People (and one fan service character) don’t get to choose but it is only bad when Dany said?.
But to the point, I think that not only is Game of Thrones going to win Drama Series but it is a deserving winner…I love Bodyguard and Succession and I think are the only too worthy contenders but I don’t believe any of those is winning…Game of Thrones has some issues with some moments in the writing department but that don’t get to annulled the overall story, it is still the best directed program in TV, it is a spectacle, it is a monumental achievement of entertainment and from make up to acting, to set design to visual effects is an unimpeachable product.
