Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

My predictions: 4/6, missing Christie and Turner

I read the nominees in this category too quickly, and didn’t notice the sad fact that, despite four male performers getting nominated, Rhea Seehorn still couldn’t manage a nomination. Instead, there are four nominees from the year’s most popular show, with fan favorite Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) joining Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) and past nominees Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) and Lena Headey (Game of Thrones). They were good, sure, but I don’t know that they needed to dominate this category, especially with the deserving female cast members of “This Is Us” left out while their male costars continue to be nominated. Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve), who also scored a guest acting nomination for “Fleabag,” got swept up in the popularity of her show, which I’m all for since she’s very good in it. Rounding out the category is Julia Garner (Ozark), an actress I like a lot on a show I don’t watch, and I’m happy she made the cut following her SAG bid.

Who should win? Williams put in the most effort in my mind for this season, but I’m not too behind any one nominee here.
Who will win? Vote-splitting seems likely to impact the GOT stars, but I still think Williams can triumph.
