    1. Yay! Just in time for the categories for which GoT is nominated!!!

      Thanks! 🙂

      Edit: Whoa…I had no expectation of having the first post, so didn’t…

      Hodor!

    2. Man! Emilia and Kit make a Disney Prince/Princess gorgeous couple!!! Ps. I don´t like her dress but Sophie Turner certainly has a beautiful face!!!

    3. They all look stunning, especially Hannah Murrray! Not a fan of Emilia’s dress choice. It looks too rigid. You can literally see the outline of all the shapewear she is wearing.

    4. I do believe Gwendoline should be renamed Gwendoline “Total Hotness” Christie, and Maisie Williams should be renamed “Baby Metal” ♥♥

    5. They all look like million bucks!! The absence of Lena is a bit concerning though. I am kinda getting a feeling she might not win. Seriously hope i am wrong. & I am also getting a feeling Emilia might.. Well let’s wait & see.

      Also Good luck to Kit. Brilliant little sketch with Adam Samberg he did 🙂

    6. Great! I think that means that the Battle of the bastards will also win the directing emmy and could also be good for Kit. Fingers crossed!

    7. Boudica,

      She’s a great actress however in this case it’s just a token award as the series has wrapped and not based on merit as this last season was a stinker all around. I think Lena was robbed.

      And vote splitting intervenes!

      Exactly. Too many nominees from one show = a chosen candidate from another show wins. Anyway, it’s just the fucking Emmys. It would be nice if Lena, Maisie or Emilia would get recognized for their work, but it’s not the end of the world.

    9. I’m happy that BOTB won both writing/directing, but I’m bummed about supporting actress. I’m a HUGE Maisie fan, so I was rooting for her most of all but at the last couple of seconds, I thought: I know she won’t win, so please, please, let Lena win. And then she didn’t. :cries:

      So now I really, really, REALLY want Peter to win. (Sorry, I don’t think Kit deserves it. He’s improved, but I don’t think that means he is great. He’s just a lot better than he was.)

      This was discussed though. History has been that one will win with three in the same category… Until now. Damnit!!

    11. Emmy with its problems as always… I think they dont even watch the whole series.
      I really want to understand how Battle of Bastards won Best Writting, with all of its problems in the writting, like Sansa not telling anyone about the Vale knights, or the pile of bodies and the Boltons men all dissapering or dead or even all the manichaeim on both of the battles…

        Quote  Reply

    12. It is really a pity that Lena was ignored again. She deserved to win the last several years and never won so far. I guess the mad queen from season 7 will have to do it in two years then.

        Quote  Reply

    13. Ah well.

      ETA: To be fair, what I watched of Bloodline, that actor is REALLY good, and everywhere I read of people/critics who do watch it, they say he continues to be really, really good. Many also say that he was robbed last year. So…..

        Quote  Reply

    14. Ben Mendelsohn? That was an upset. Not saying that he wasn’t deserving, but all of Emmy history said that if Dinklage wasn’t going to repeat as winner, it would have gone to Jonathan Banks.

      Because they changed how they vote. Without ranked voting, series with multiple nominees are at a disadvantage. This isn’t inherently fatal (see all the wins for People vs. O.J.), but it’s definitely a challenge.

      I don’t, per se, have a problem with favouring #1 votes, but it certainly hurts bigger shows. Makes the Emmys more interesting, though.

        Quote  Reply

    16. The guy who won best supporting actor barely had any screen time he was dead most of the season.

      If GoT didn’t win I was hoping for Jonathan Banks at least.

        Quote  Reply

    17. Voting splitting really hurt GoT in the acting categories, they should have focused on one actor per category. The storylines changes so much year after year that some part are always more of a focus then others. They should have focused on the more prevalent story lines, as nominees.

      I hope Got still wins drama series.

    18. Boudica,

      I am a huge fan of Maggie Smith, have been for decades. She’s a phenomenal actress. But her role in Dowton Abbey was slight, and really rather one note. I don’t get it (tho it might be because the show is over)

        Quote  Reply

    19. Wow, I did not expect Game of Thrones to lose both leading actor and actress categories. Seriously…..I’m a little disappointed. I’m glad they won the other two though 🙂

      It seems to be an Emmy tradition to give out a prize to popular shows when they’re at the end. Wherever Cersei ends up, Lena might get the same treatment, so I wouldn’t despair. I have a feeling neither Lena or Maggie Smith really give the award much thought one way or the other.

        Quote  Reply

    21. Well, kinda sad it didn’t go to Banks if it couldn’t go to Kit; feel kinda bad for Banks, he didn’t get it last year, knocks it out of the park, and will only lose because he’s gonna be up against a guy who’s quite literally so fucking amazing it only takes 17 1/2 minutes for him to win an OSCAR!!!

      I’d just like to congratulate Anthony Hopkins on winning Best Supporting Actor going forward!

      As much as our guys slay, you know he already won well deservedly from about three fucking seconds in a trailer, and that’s hard to beat!!!

    22. ash,

      I actually also really like Maggie Smith, I can understand why she doesn’t go to the Emmys. She isn’t that young anymore.

      But Lena has a much interesting and dynamic role, and Lena has been snubbed for two years now.

      It’s really not. Sure, it happens sometimes, but voters rarely discover performers at the last minute if they weren’t already honouring them.

    24. You guys think that GoT gets insufficient Emmy love? The Americans gets no love. Not saying that Tatiana Maslany wasn’t deserving for the difficulty of the work she has to pull off on her show, but Keri Russell really should have won this year.

        Quote  Reply

    25. So it’s 5:46 here but I don’t care I woke up anyway. Wtf was that supporting actor win? Were they drunk when they voted and missed Kit’s or Jonathan Bank’s name?
      Really happy for directing and writing though. Especially for writing, since D&D’s work get so easily criticised all the time.

      I can barely remember the last season of the show since I found it entirely meh. But my impression was that the Dowager’s role in the story kept fading with each season, though I suspect some of this might have been due to Maggie Smith’s health limiting her shooting times.

    30. AlexG,

      That was my point. I was hearing WAY too much whining on this board because Thrones wasn’t sweeping every category. Just pointing out that there are some shows- many of which are also deserving- that aren’t nearly as fortunate.

    31. Wow this was the season of DA where MS had by far the least to do. her entire plot was being on the wrong side of a dispute about hospital administration. It didn’t even have any emotional resonance.

      Though I was seriously worried this would happen once there were more than one GOT nominee. Vote splitting FTL
      BOOOO

    32. After feeling very disappointed due to the acting category results, that final win just tipped the balance into positive territory for me. I guess I have unrealistic expectations – but on the bright side, the Emmys constituted three more hours of successful avoidance of the boring task I’m supposed to be working on!

    34. Did we pass Frasier??And honestly guys appart from vote splitting which I am sure played a big role Game of Thrones is a bit tricky in the acting categories.All of them do a great job but nobody really has the time or material to shine due to its format.Peter has had the flashiest role and it shows in the awards.That said Lena might get in the season in which Cersei dies.

        Quote  Reply

    35. Best Drama Series! Awesome. That win, plus Miguel, Rami and Tatiana almost make up for the anticlimactic drama supporting wins. I half-expected the GoT cast to split the vote in their categories, but I’d hoped that at least more deserving performers like Constance Zimmer and Jonathon Banks would benefit from it. Ah, too bad Kimmel didn’t enforce his no-show policy.

      Hopefully HBO learns from this and submits whichever actor and actress gets the most screen time in Season 7 as leads for the 2018 Emmys. Or maybe just default to Peter and Lena for that category since they appear first in the credits and are locks for a nom no matter where you submit them at this point. They might even be able to get away with submitting some of the regulars as guest actors now that we’re down to 7-episode seasons. Seriously, HBO, if you want acting wins in Drama, smarten up and spread the cast out!

    36. Congrats to GoT! Woohoo! Plus D&D, and Sapochnik!

      I am also incredibly happy for Tatiana Maslany. She deserved to win ages ago, and every year since then. What a talent!

      Emilia looked stunning tonight, with everything perfect, and pretty understated. The pic of her and Kit – gorgeous! Hannah looked beautiful. I’m not a fan of Sophie Turner’s dress (dowdyish IMO), and I think Maisie looked prettier earlier in the day, which was a really great look on her.

        Quote  Reply

    37. Alice,

      Definitely not knocking Mendehlson, just lamenting Kit and Banks, who, like all in that category, are very deserving.

      Seriously though, I think that’s gonna be a Janneyesque category for as long as Westworld is on; not that he won’t thoroughly deserve it, but unfortunately everyone can’t win and you know its coming!

      Well done GoT on the whole though. Betting/hoping Westworld takes it next year. Will definitely be curious to see who’s in it when GoT is next eligible. Congrats D&D, GRRM, Bryan, et al. Hell of a season, here’s to two more!!! #15 episodes please (even though I don’t have Twitter)!

      Psyched for Oliver too.

      Killed it hosting The Daily Show back in the day, so very well deserved! LWT is gut-splittingly hilarious and on point!!!

      Emilia’s dress would be perfection in literally any other colour. Kit, Iwan, Maisie….everyone looking good tonight! I’ll give Sophie a pass on the VPL since I love the dress.

      You can’t submit people who are regulars as guest performers, however many episodes they appear in.

    42. Raoul_Duke,

      So happy Miguel won but did you notice there was pic of Sophie on the presentation screen? Kit was snubbed (granted I don’t know anything of Mendelson’s work but anyways) but him not winning plus the fact his face not even representing the episode that won just sat the wrong way with me. After all the work you could tell he put into that it just doesn’t seem fair.

    43. Sean C.,

      House of Cards does it all the time, and I think others have done it too.

      Reg E. Cathy, Ellen Burstyn and Paul Sparks were opening credits regulars, despite not appearing in many episodes (definitely under half in Cathy’s case); whereas for some odd reason Finn Jones, Ian MacElhinney, and Julian Glover never got title bumps despite outpacing several others, especially in Dany’s story.

      I think there’s probably more too it.

        Quote  Reply

    44. Shout out to McKinnon BTW.

      I think that’s SNL’s first win for acting, and from an embarrassment of riches she’s among their best.

      I think EW mentioned they’re the only show to have more than us, but our besting them is not out of range, at least for the first 45 seasons!!!

        Quote  Reply

    45. Since I had predicted a vote split victory for Smith and worried that our boys would have the same problem, I had pinned all my hopes on director, writing and best drama …which would give GoT the all-time Emmy record for primetime telly. Snap :-). It was thrilling to see that cast and crew traffic jam up there with Dave and Dan. Everyone looked good and no doubt right now are in party hearty mode prior to flying out to Belfast.

      I wonder if GRRM is aware that he’s finally caught up with his idol. His epic fantasy has won the most Emmys of any show. Tolkien’s LOTR: Return of the King is tied (with Titanic and Ben Hur) for the most Oscars of any film. Quality shows.

    46. Jenny,

      Aiden, Liam, Alfie, Isaac, John, Hannah, and Indira are just a few of the series regulars who have appeared in four of fewer episodes out of 10. You think now that we’re down to seven episodes, appearing in three is suddenly out of the question? All one of them has to do is unexpectedly snuff it early on, like Joffrey or Barristan, and we’re in business.

      Too bad jimmy didn’t invoke his rule then Emilia or maisie would have landed that award

      I wanted Maisie to win, but Maggie deserves it. She could act circles around any of the fellow nominees with a look.

      Amen! I was pulling for Maisie, too. I was just thrilled she finally got a nomination because she could’ve easily been nominated the past 4 seasons, in my opinion. Even when the Arya plot floundered along, Maisie always delivered the goods and then some. The tough nut in this is there are so many amazing performances, how does a voter choose? It was such a thrill to see 3 of the ladies nominated but I can’t begrudge Maggie Smith’s win. Like you said, she can tell the story just with a look.
      I admit I was more surprised at Ben Mendelsohn’s win. I can’t judge his performance in “Bloodline”, never seen it, but I remember him from “Animal Kingdom”. He is the real deal. I was expecting a Kit win. He had an intense season but again, like the ladies, with so many amazing performances on this show, too hard to choose.

        Quote  Reply

    49. Ben Mendelsohn could have easily won last year. Probably even should have. His performance in the first season of Bloodline was one of the best I have ever seen in anything I have ever seen. Truly.

      This year for him on Bloodline was different, for obvious reasons I won’t say in case someone wants to watch the series, but I think what happened was everyone thought Jonathan Banks would be the makeup, but overlooked that possibility for Mendelsohn. And I think that’s exactly what happened.

    50. Huge applause for D&D, Miguel, and all of the people involved! (Best Drama is a nod to the entire production team, HBO, and ALL of the actors involved, so for me that sweetens the actor snubs)

      Also very nice to see Tatiana and Rami win. I actually gave up on Orphan Black after two seasons as the story got too contrived for me, but Tatiana’s acting definitely deserved the win. A bit similarly, I didn’t care too much for Mr Robot first season because I called the “big reveal” from the beginning, but Rami definitely did a great job acting-wise. Anybody watching season 2? Would it be worth watching for one like me who didn’t really buy the story in the first season?

      From the ones you listed, only Liam, Alfie, and Isaac have roles that are prolific/flashy enough to possibly earn a nomination. That said, I agree with you that it’s possible that one of those would at some point win Guest Actor. (in case that rule change indeed still applies)

    52. ygritte,

      Well I never believed she will win ..so no I would not been disappointed if she didn’t win…i thought the competition will be between Lena and Maggie… So i was not surprised when maggie won.

      I thought kit will win for sure after peter nominated “no one” episode ..
      But if we now sit and think about it ..it may be too soon for kit to win an award when there are lot more senior actors not recognized.. Iam not saying that in negative way ,it would have been like emilia winning before lena does..so for now iam happy with kit getting nominated for the first time..

      My dream is in the last season kit and Emilia to win both categories that would be worth watching after all the shit they went through and thrown at them over the years

      Sorta sad Harrington didn’t win, as but he’s come into his own the last two seasons.

      I love Maggie Smith, but Headey should have taken this one. Maybe Headey, Maisey, and Clarke canceled one another out?

        Quote  Reply

    54. Tar Kidho,

      I checked and it does still apply. As I said, that list was just a sampling. NCW and Ian Glen are among the actors with more prominent roles who have also appeared in fewer than 50% of episodes at one point or another, and obviously HBO should focus on the qualifying actors who they believe would have the best chances. Thing is, flash isn’t as important here as the fact that the guest acting ballots have about one third the number of names on them as the supporting ones, so playing a character on a popular show who has been there for multiple seasons has a much greater impact on that list. We saw this tactic work extremely well for the House of Cards actors. The problem was that too many of them actually got the nod and they cancelled each other out.
