  1. Vanessa,

    How he didn’t win for “Light of the Seven” is beyond me. That season as a whole had an incredible score.

    From the acting noms, I think Jeffrey Wright and Thandie Newton will have pretty good chances! Although they have some damn tough competition to go up against…

    Also, it is very interesting to me that Thandie was submitted as a Supporting Actress instead of a Lead. It will definitely help her chances, but she was just as integral to the season as Wood, Harris and Wright.

  2. Jaehaerys,

    I agree with you about Thandie, but hopefully she has better odds in Supporting. I’m pulling for Jeffrey, although I’d be happy to see Ed win too. I love Evan, and she deserved a win last year imo, but I’m a bit pessimistic about her chances this year. She didn’t get to show nearly as much range in her performance.

    And yes, Ramin should definitely have won for Light of the Seven. It’s a travesty he has yet to win an Emmy or a Grammy for GoT.
