Entertainment Weekly has an interesting roundup of the actors, writers, and directors HBO has submitted for consideration to this years Emmy Awards from Game of Thrones.
I find it very exciting that the only episode HBO submitted in the writing category is this Sunday’s season finale, “The Children.” They must be very confident about that episode and I am that much more excited about seeing the episode this Sunday. However, I think Game of Thrones is written so well – this season in particular- that it might have had a chance at being nominated for multiple episodes.
Multiple episodes will have the chance of being nominated in the directing category. “The Children”, last weeks epic battle episode “The Watchers on the Wall”, and “The Laws of Gods and Men” were all submitted for consideration.
As for the actors Pedro Pascal was submitted for his role as Oberyn and Diana Rigg was submitted for Lady Olenna in guest actor roles. I think both of these actors have a great chance of not only being nominated but also winning. Rigg especially was a delight to watch and I always found myself wanting to see more of her.
For the supporting actor category HBO submitted: Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister), Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister), and Kit Harington (Jon Snow).
For the supporting actor category HBO submitted: Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark).
I think Dinklage and Headey have the best chances in these two categories but I’ll also be pulling for Waldau and Williams who I think have done outstanding work this season.
The season finale of Game of Thrones is this Sunday on HBO. Who would you like to get nominated for an Emmy from Game of Thrones? Who do you think got left off this list?
