With ‘Westworld’ stars going lead, who will be the biggest beneficiary in Best Drama Supporting Actor Emmy race? [Poll]

HBO is making a bold move by shifting “Westworld” stars Jeffrey Wright and Ed Harris from supporting to lead for the Emmys, ostensibly freeing up two spots in Best Drama Supporting Actor. Only Wright was nominated last year in supporting, but both stars were favored to get in this year. Now with them being Mia, along with defending champ John Lithgow (“The Crown”), Jonathan Banks (“Better Call Saul”) and Michael Kelly (“House of Cards”), it’s open season for a number of names to make the shortlist — some for the very first time. Who has the best chances of taking advantage of this wide-open field?

David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) and Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) are 1-2 in our odds and seem like locks, as does Mandy Patinkin (“Homeland”) on a smaller scale. Patinkin, in fourth place, returned last year after a two-year absence and is the last remaining flagbearer for the once-hot Showtime drama.

Game of Thrones Emmy Ballot Twist: Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington Enter as Leads — Will the Bold Move Backfire?
Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke are going where no Game of Thrones performers have gone before — into Emmy’s lead acting categories. According to TVLine’s sister site Goldderby, which obtained a copy of HBO’s 2018 Emmy submissions, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen’s respective portrayers are exiting the congested supporting actor and actress races in favor of the less competitive lead actor and actress categories.

Harington and Clarke — both of whom have been previously nominated in the supporting categories — are the first Game of Thrones performers to enter themselves as leads. (The series previously employed a Friends-like ensemble strategy during awards season,

Emmys 2018: Will Nikolaj Coster-Waldau & Justin Hartley complete the nominations sweep for Lannister & Pearson siblings?

Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) from “Game of Thrones” and Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley) from “This is Us” don’t seem to have that much in common. One is a knight fighting for control of a fictional kingdom. The other is a former sitcom stud fighting for respect as a serious actor. And they have, shall we say, very different relationships with their sisters. But they’re both golden-boy sons with two siblings whose portrayers have been nominated for Emmys. That makes them both the black sheep of their TV acting families since they’re still waiting for their first bids. They’re both eligible for Best Drama Supporting Actor this year, so will the prodigal sons make the cut at last?

Coster-Waldau has been eligible for Emmys since “Game of Thrones” premiered in 2011, but the TV academy has yet to take notice. Ironically, it has been the black sheep of

2018 Emmys: Which drama will have the most nominations? ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Westworld,’ ‘Stranger Things’ … [Poll]

When last year’s Emmy nominations were unveiled, HBO’s “Westworld” was the king of all dramas with a whopping 22 bids. Its closest competitor was Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” which came in at 18 total noms. “The Handmaid’s Tale” (Hulu) and “The Crown” (Netflix) each nabbed 13, followed by NBC’s “This Is Us,” which ended up with 10. However, none of those numbers match the nominations tallies of “Game of Thrones,” which earned 24 in 2015 and 23 in 2016. At the upcoming 2018 Emmys, will “Game of Thrones” once again be TV’s drama nominations leader, or will one of its competitors claim that title? Vote in our poll below.

‘The First Purge’ Trailer Teases Violent Holiday’s Origin Story

‘The First Purge’ Trailer Teases Violent Holiday’s Origin Story
The debut trailer for “The First Purge” gets right to the point with a backer proclaiming, “Tonight allows a release of all the hatred and violence people keep inside.”

Universal unveiled the violence-laden footage Friday from the fourth title in its near-future Purge franchise. “The First Purge” is being marketed as an origins story, in which the New Founding Fathers of America try out a sociological theory that allowing people to vent aggression for one night in an isolated community will somehow drive the crime rate down.

The First Purge” zeroes in on one family, with Lex Scott Davis’ character trying to prevent the coming violence. All four films center on America having devolved into a culture where murder is legal for 12 hours one night every year.

The new trailer includes the command “Join the First Purge!” from the New Founding Fathers of America from a public loudspeaker, while resisters chant “Do Not Purge!

Kit Harington knows nothing concrete about a Game of Thrones spinoff, and if one is made, he is not going to be in it.  Last June, it was revealed tha tHBO plans to produce a prequel series and was weighing five possible ideas.
