Emmy Predictions: Who Will Win Monday Night

21 August 2014 2:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When it comes to analyzing awards, the Emmys are the hardest to gauge. The Academy Awards have the luxury of looking to Guild Awards or BAFTAs, which share a voting body with the Academy, but the Emmys noms are determined by a panel of unknown—and unpredictable—judges, before going to the voting body. Still, Variety’s Debra Birnbaum and Jenelle Riley take their best guess at who will bring home the gold Monday night.

Supporting Actor in a Drama

Jenelle: In a category of stellar turns, it’s really a three-man race between previous winners Aaron Paul for the final season of “Breaking Bad,” and Peter Dinklage for “Game of Thrones” and three-time Emmy nominee Jon Voight of “Ray Donovan.” Dinklage submitted a showy episode where he gets a great speech, demanding a trial by combat. Voight is beloved and considered the best thing about the Showtime drama. Still, »

You'll Never Guess What Emmy-Nominated Game of Thrones Star Lena Headey's First Job Was (Hint: We Are Now Craving Pizza)

21 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Lena Headey is one mother of talented actor...but she wasn't always known for playing one of the fiercest Lannister women in all the realm. Before the Game of Thrones star was nominated for her first-ever Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama, she was slinging pizzas for drunk people! Can you even imagine it? Obviously, she's come a long way from her first job, and we hope she takes home the hardware on Monday. To celebrate some of our favorite first-timers like Headey this awards season, we asked them all five burning questions.

Emmy Predictions 2014: Outstanding comedy/drama supporting actress

18 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Because it's NBC's turn to air the Primetime Emmy Awards this year, and because the Peacock would understandably rather air its lucrative Sunday night NFL package in September, the ceremony will take place in late August again. And as an added wrinkle, this year's ceremony will actually happen on a Monday, August 25 at 8 p.m., with Seth Meyers hosting. Between now and then, Dan and I will be making our picks for both who should and will win many of the major categories — if you're wagering, keep in mind that Dan tends to be much better at predicting the winners than I am, but also that he was just as flummoxed as I by last year's winners like Jeff Daniels, Merritt Wever and Bobby Cannavale — continuing as we shift into the acting categories with comedy and drama supporting actress.

Editors' Emmy predictions slugfest: Who'll win Best Drama Supporting Actress?

12 August 2014 5:36 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In our new prediction slugfest video, Gold Derby Editors are wary of declaring Anna Gunn ("Breaking Bad") a lock to win Best Drama Supporting Actress because Emmy voters always like to throw us a few surprises. In particular, there are two other ladies with stand-out episode submissions that make this a real race: Joanne Froggatt ("Downton Abbey") and Christine Baranski ("The Good Wife"). Joining me in our latest video (watch below) are Rob Licuria, Daniel Montgomery, Matt Noble and Charles Bright as we analyze the episodes submitted to Emmy judges as examples of their best work from the past TV season. Gunn went with "Ozymandias," Froggatt chose "Episode 4.2" and Baranski submitted "The Last Call." Other nominees: Maggie Smith for "Downton Abbey" ("The London Season"), Christina Hendricks for "Mad Men" ("The Strategy") and Lena Headey for "Game of Thrones" ("T..." »

Why Do Certain Actors on Ensemble Shows Stand Out for Emmy Nominations?

7 August 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Robert Altman would be proud. His signature ensemble filmmaking style has become the norm rather than the exception in dramatic series. However magnetic the leads, they’re invariably surrounded by distinctive character players who get multiple chances to shine across a typical season.

Which creates an annual knotty problem for Emmy voters as they consider the supporting categories. Some turns can be singled out as guest actor or actress — late-1980s additions conveniently allowing the academy to spread a little more wealth around. But nominators are still faced with tapping only a select few per skein. Even more mysteriously, they’re wont to proffer a nod one year, only to deny one the next for the very same role. For example, the first year “Modern Family” was eligible, everyone in the cast but Ed O’Neill received a nom. For the next three years, the entire ensemble was recognized. But this year, »

Emmy Episode Analysis: Lena Headey ('Game of Thrones') is tragic villain in 'Lion and the Rose'

1 August 2014 9:24 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

This is Lena Headey's first Best Drama Supporting Actress nomination for her role as Cersei Lannister on "Game of Thrones." Can she upset frontrunner Anna Gunn ("Breaking Bad") and take home an Emmy? -Break- Exclusive video: 'Game of Thrones' star Lena Headey defends controversial sex scene Synopsis: In "The Lion and the Rose," all of King's Landing is preparing for the royal wedding of King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer). At the pre-wedding banquet, Joffrey is lavished with gifts, including a Valyrian steel sword that his grandfather, Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance), had forged in a prior episode. Joffrey begins to torment his uncle Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) by contemptuously chopping in half the rare book Tyrion had given to him. At the reception after the wedding ceremony, Lady Olenna (Diana Rigg) reminds Tywin of the debt the crown owes to the Iron Bank of Braavos. »

Aimee Richardson Is A 'Princess For Hire' After 'Game Of Thrones' Recasting

31 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Aimee Richardson, who played Princess Myrcella on the first two seasons of HBO’s Game of Thrones, wants people to know she’s now a “Princess For Hire.”

Aimee Richardson Is Princess For Hire

Richardson, 16, had assumed that she’d be back in the role of Myrcella for Game of Throne’s fifth season. As the second oldest Baratheon child – that was actually born of the incest between her mother Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Cersei's twin brother Jamie (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) – Myrcella stood to be crowned queen following Joffrey’s (Jack Gleeson) death at The Purple Wedding.

Following The Purple Wedding episode, Richardson took to Vine, placing a crown upon her head and saying, “I’m ready.”

Unfortunately for Richardson, Game of Thrones producers announced at Comic-Con that Nell Tiger Free would be replacing her in the role of Myrcella for the upcoming season. Once again taking to Vine, Richardson »

Emmys Poll 2014: Who Should Win Best Supporting Actress in a Drama?

31 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Not-so-good news for Breaking Bad‘s Anna Gunn and Downton Abbey‘s Maggie Smith. Not since Huff‘s Blythe Danner strode up to the podium in 2006 has there been a repeat winner in the Emmy race for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

If Emmy voters continue the trend of spreading the wealth in the category, Gunn and Smith — who respectively snagged Supporting Actress statuettes in 2013 and 2012 — will have to settle for the honor of simply being nominated.

A new blooper reel released at Comic-Con in San Diego shows “Game of Thrones” stars bumbling lines, clowning around and otherwise adding some levity the serious business of blood and iron in the Seven Kingdoms.
