Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 4/7, missing Allen, Kelly, and Sullivan

Well, if it wasn’t apparent that “Game of Thrones” was immensely popular, this category was the first serious indicator. Joining expected nominees Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones) was fan favorite Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), who didn’t exactly merit the bid with his screentime or performance, but that’s okay. I’m pleased that I predicted Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul) to earn a nomination alongside Jonathan Banks (Better Call Saul), now the second cast member to be recognized for the same performance on two shows. I guess it makes sense that Chris Sullivan (This Is Us) got nominated for this season of his show, though I don’t know what Justin Hartley has to do in order to earn some love. I don’t have much to say about Michael Kelly (House of Cards) being honored yet again for his performance other than that I’d like to forget all about the final season of that show. I would have included many other performers here, but this is the list we have.

Who should win? Honestly, there’s no real comparing to Dinklage, who’s consistently terrific.
Who will win? I think Dinklage wins his fourth award, and I’m all for it.
