I still can’t see Jessie Buckley in the predictions centre. I do think she’s in contention for a nomination now so she should be added as soon as possible.June 16, 2019 at 11:29 am #1202940603
All I’m saying is most people with the intension of voting for Tyson will find out van Houten is submitted so they’ll change their minds and vote for her. So, Tyson will be the one to be snubbed for the sake of Melisandre.
We understand your argument. It’s just not a very good one because it displays little understanding of how the process actually works.June 16, 2019 at 10:40 am #1202940516
Van Houten is not happening..
I wasn’t speaking to you I was speaking to that one particular user. I checked and they’re predicting van Houten anyway. Thank you for your irrelevant input though.June 16, 2019 at 9:47 am #1202940478
Damn, I knew I would forget someone. Actually, that might be indicative of Coster-Waldau’s performance. He was good, but nothing extremely outstanding or memorable I would say. That said, Supporting Actor is quite empty and he has been nominated before. So he is likely getting in as well.
So that makes 5 GoT acting noms and 1 win (Dinklage).
6 including Carice! Although it’s not a major category.June 16, 2019 at 8:51 am #1202940427
Finally got round to watching episode 1 and I really forgot how engrossing this show is. It transports you to Monterey and immerses you in the world of the characters brilliantly, to the extent that sometimes you forget you’re actually watching Reese Witherspoon and Meryl Streep. I want to see how Jane and Renata’s subplots pan out over the next few episodes before commenting on them, but the main drama is fantastic.June 16, 2019 at 8:33 am #1202940411
Headey would have needed to have screen time in order for her performance to be better than Turner’s.
This didn’t make any sense. There are countless examples of supporting performances in both TV and film that were better than the bigger performances in the same project.June 16, 2019 at 6:25 am #1202940355
Turner had more material but Headey’s material definitely had more dramatic weight. Why mention Turner (and the other GOT actresses) at all if you only wanted to focus on Headey’s material?June 16, 2019 at 4:00 am #1202940241
I think you read what I wrote incorrectly. While I do stand by my statement that Turner had a better performance this year than Headey, my sole reasoning as to why Headey should not win is because of her lack of material.
I was agreeing with you on your main point about her lack of material in season 8, but the reality is that it didn’t happen in a vacuum and most people will bring their biases built up from previous seasons forward. Turner really had little to do in the whole season so using her to embellish your reasoning why Headey shouldn’t win didn’t help your point.June 15, 2019 at 6:01 pm #1202939820
I think it’s the absolute certainty Chernobyl fans speak with that puts some people off. It’s not a lock but you speak as though it is. You can’t exactly cite proven industry support for one over the other because they’re both literally untested. If When They See Us does somehow beat it to major awards I see a lot of internet tantrums happening (not just on this forum).June 15, 2019 at 5:57 pm #1202939814
What if…the voters decide they don’t really want an East Asian winner at the main ceremony, esp in lead, and shunt Oh to the side by giving her a consolation prize for SNL instead?
If Oh doesn’t win it will be due to her limited role and vote splitting with Comer, certainly not because of her race.June 15, 2019 at 5:43 pm #1202939794
Uhm… what? Her death scene happened off-screen, they literally didn’t even bother giving her a death scene.
You guys have an idea of her in your minds and you want that idea to have an Emmy, I get that. But, unfortunately, this season wasn’t it. Nothing could justify an Emmy nomination (which she’ll eventually get) let alone a win.
While I agree that the best way to operate is to judge purely based on the eligible season, citing Turner’s performance as a reason why Headey shouldn’t win the Emmy definitely ruined whatever argument you had.June 14, 2019 at 10:53 am #1202937888
If Jharrel Jerome gets in here I’ll predict him to win at the Emmys.June 13, 2019 at 10:17 am #1202936182
I honestly don’t know why the Rashad stans on here get so threatened by other people’s predictions, especially when Van Houten is involved.
Don’t forget the Lange stans. The fact that they constantly move discussion to the winner while we simply want a nomination for Carice clearly suggests they’re more threatened than they’re letting on. Rashad is my second choice in the category and I’ll be happy if she won.
