I do wonder what episode will they submit for Visual Effects. The Long Night had A LOT of amazing VFX but they all were in the dark/night. The Bells also had a lot of amazing VFX and it all was in the light/day. Hard choice.
I honestly might submit the finale. Drogon was so well-animated in that and felt like an actual character when he was grieving for his mom.May 21, 2019 at 12:17 pm #1202903404
I think if Fleabag gets nominated for multiple acting categories and writing, it can beat out Kominsky for the last series nomination. And I really can’t see Kominsky getting in for writing.May 21, 2019 at 10:53 am #1202903237

I really can’t see Kit Harington beating out Milo Ventimiglia at this point.May 21, 2019 at 7:21 am #1202902956
What about Macfayden?
Macfayden is an interesting possibility. He doesn’t have much to do in the first couple episodes, but he gets a huge storyline in the 4th episode that gives him a lot of great opportunities and injects him fully into the intrigue. He gets a good balance of comedy and drama and plays his character as someone who is insecure about his place in the nouveau riche and is constantly flaunting his wealth to compensate. I think he has a chance and is probably in 7th on my list.May 21, 2019 at 1:39 am #1202902742
I want to predict a Succession supporting actor, but I haven’t seen the show. Which one do you all think is getting in? Riley I know you are predicting, Macfadyen and not Culkin, any reason why you are going for the former over the latter?
I’m only 6 episodes in, but I doubt Culkin makes it. He’s playing a mostly one-note character who is intensely dislikable, but not even in a way that’s fun to hate.May 20, 2019 at 11:36 pm #1202902641
honeys sorry to intervene but matt walsh, kenan thompson and alec baldwin should not even be in the conversation, they simply do not deserve to get nominated and that’s the reason they will all end up snubbed as they should
What’s wrong with Kenan other than a weird irrational dislike for SNL?May 20, 2019 at 10:43 pm #1202902594
If Stone had been put in lead and the other two in supporting, do you think Stone would have been nominated? I think Colman would have still won in Supporting even with Weisz as competition.
Why wouldn’t Stone be nominated? And Colman obviously would have been a lock in supporting.May 20, 2019 at 10:38 pm #1202902588
I added Matt Walsh back in today at Kenan Thompson’s expense because I figure that voters favour Veep to Saturday Night Live.
That’s arguable IMO, especially in the acting branch. Veep has only gotten 4 regular cast members nominated over the past 7 years, while SNL has gotten 7 nominated. Those numbers obviously get even more skewed if you add in the guest categories. And Thompson missing for a strong season the year after he breaks through to Walsh, who as far as I understand did nothing, seems unlikely.May 20, 2019 at 5:54 pm #1202902298
It really is baffling that it skipped a year. It’s not like it has any chance of winning anything in 2020 regardless, and I honestly think it will only hang onto a nomination for Harbour (and even he might miss if Ratched has the roles for Cheadle and Wittrock). Even if Game of Thrones Season 8 was good, Stranger Things 3 probably could have gotten Winona Ryder nominated this year and gotten a win for Millie Bobby Brown. And with the season flopping, Stranger Things could have definitely won Series, Directing, and Writing alongside that.May 20, 2019 at 5:44 pm #1202902280
Honestly, I still like Season 8 of Game of Thrones more than Season 2 of Stranger Things. The quality drop between seasons 1 and 2 was staggering. Hopefully Season 3 will be better.May 20, 2019 at 4:21 pm #1202902200
Who do you think is more likely to have a successful career post Got?
Jason Momoa and Richard Madden.
If you’re looking for a serious answer though, I’d bet on Maisie Williams. She’s the best actor on the show and she apparently wants to do indie films, where I could see her having a critical breakout. Harrington doesn’t really have the talent, Headey seems to prefer to do lower-profile action stuff, Dinklage has a limited selection of roles, Turner’s first attempt at franchise films flopped, and Clarke’s first two franchise attempts flopped. Maybe Coster-Waldau will get offered something good.May 20, 2019 at 3:27 pm #1202902134
Oh, we are considering it for the series category now? We have very different views of this situation then.
I’m thinking about it. It has buzz, reviews, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Olivia Colman, and the competition is weak. UKS and Kominsky are both incredibly weak and I’m not convinced that Better Things has any buzz outside of Adlon. Maybe Black-ish really will hold on instead.
